I only had to cold crash one brew because it was in the primary for two months and would not clear up. I cold crashed it in a tub of ice for two days and it cleared right up.

Most Disgusting Beer Ever - Cucumber Flavored

Magic Hat Hicu cucumber flavored beer. This was the first time I ever dumped a beer down the drain because it was 100% disgusting and totally undrinkable. But I do I like the other Magic Hat beers.
