I have a Kolsch that has reached FG after one week, and the instructions indicate that I should keep it really cool for the last part of the fermentation.

The question I have is, how cool? I could probably keep it down somewhere in the low to mid 40's if I had to.

Edit Yeast is Wyeast 2565

Reason: Forgot to add yeast type

That should be alright. I just kegged mine and kept it at serving temps (38F) for a month, turned out great!

Rack it into a secondary and get it as cold as you can and let it sit for as long as you can. The longer it sits and the colder you get it the lighter and clearer the beer will be.
