It won't be a problem.

You're using a neutral yeast so a few degrees this way or that won't impart any unique flavors.

I know this kind of a newb ? but what is the reasoning for the low temperature secondary and the "normal" temperature primary?

A lower (cold) secondary is known as crash cooling. It helps the yeast to fall quicker and the beer to clear better.

A lot of people like to leave the beer in the primary for an extended period 2-3 weeks and then straight to a cold condition bright tank like a keg, or a secondary they can chill.

what does "bright tank" mean? Can i use just a regular glass car boy?

just a side note..I made this a week ago yesterday, it started fermentation by the time I woke up the next morning and I still have lots of airlock activity and the fermentation "swirl" goin on. Not to mention some great smells in my fermentation room.

Just a generic term for whatever vessel you let the beer clear-up in.

A glass carboy is perfect.

I just sampled the first bottle of this batch, and it's great! I made it to bring to a family crabfeast, and the coriander and citrus flavors are going to go really well with spicy blue crabs. Thanks for a great recipe, BM!

Thanks, if it is anywhere near as good as the Centennial, I will be brewing it constantly.
