Am I reading this right? Fermentation was over, then you put the whole lot, blow off tube, catchment vessel and all into the fridge to crash cool it?

I think the longest i have left a blow off tube on was a week, tops. But usually after a few days i take that thing off and put on an airlock. Tube doesn't need to be on there any longer.

Yes, fermentation was already done. However, it was already in the fridge with a blow off. I just lowered the temp to 45 F (before that it was set to 68 F).

Thanks everyone for the replies I think I will just go ahead and rack the beer. The star san doesn't seem to have really mixed with the beer since I see a thik layer of cloudy liquid at the top, and the rest of the beer is clear as could be. I'm just a concerned because that starsan is pretty nasty. It's been in the jar for weeks, and is all cloudy.

I'm thinking about just transfering to the keg. I have a Better Bottle with the spiggot at the bottom, so I can probably rack most of the beer and stay clear of the top. What do you guys think?

Yeah, I usually do the same thing, but I just left it hooked up this time thinking it could do no harm =/ Now I know..... . . .

I couldn't recollect at first which of the basic gas laws put your sanitizer in the beer, and I thought it was Boyle's.....looks more like Charles / Gay-Lussac's:

"For a given mass, at constant pressure, volume is directly proportional to temperature."

V = C2T

Equation of State
