Close to freezing is preferable for cold crashing but 40 will work just fine. I usually do 36
to 48 hours. Dryhopping is more effective at fermentation temps but the yeast in suspension
will take some...

I'm currently cold crashing my beer for the first time before dry hopping and I have a few
questions... 1. I'm only able to get the temp down to 40 degrees and I'm wondering if that is

I don't think a week in the primary will taste much like the final beer.. If it's subtle, it

boiled but many p...
