You are probably right... not a lot at fridge temps. I guess I didn't realize you were talking about in the fridge. Only one way to find out. Give it a try and report back.

Cold crashing is how the majority of us do it, I believe. I wouldn't be too concerned about sanitation. Cold crashing is the only method I've used with my Mr. Beer "Little Brown Keg" and have never...

Don't assume it's done. You've got a hydrometer , so take another reading a day or two later. If it's still 1.011, you know it is.

I'm sure I won't be the only one to recommend "How to Brew" by John Palmer. As it is a must read. I also read "Brewing Classic Styles" by Jamil repeatedly.
