    I've used this recipe several times and it's become one of my favorites. It's a perfect

    *This is based on my own observations and may not reflect what a professional brewer will tell
    you about cold crashing. My understanding is that it is only cold crashing if it happens before

    Cracked the first beer of the batch I cold crashed. It's fully carbonated and clear! I warmed
    it up slightly to 50 degrees, added 5g priming sugar and voila! Beer happened!
