Default Crash cooling, adjust amount of priming sugar?

First time I am crash cooling. I did the AG EdWort Haus Pale Ale. I fermented it at 72*F for 12 days, little warm. Finished at 1.012. I have it in primary in my chest freezer at 40*F.

Pale Ale should be about 2.5 volumes of Co2. I am confused on what I put for "beer temperature". Do you put 72*F or the current beer temp which is 40*F? This greatly affects the amount of corn sugar (priming sugar) I need to use.

I get about 4.6oz for 72*F and 2.8oz for 40*F, confused!

Any advice is appreciate,
Justin

Use the temperature the beer is at when you bottle. The temperature affects the amount of retained CO2 is in the beer.

It's not perfect, and I have lots of questions about it, but while it was cooling, it was still creating CO2, until the yeast eventually went dormant, which stayed in solution.
