It depends, I usually do this for lagers after diacetyl rest. What beer is it?

I crash right from primary to bottling. Works wonders on the trub in bottles. You can give a beer to somebody without worrying about providing detailed instructions on pouring it.

I just did my first cold crash of the primary, then straight to a keg. Pouring nice and clear.

+2, for a basic blonde it should be great, providing it is done.

if I understand it correctly, you just take primary fermenter with yeast cake and all to some cool place?

for how long? and what are the temps of cold crashin - I have a bit nasty brew comming along, I think it would benefit from extra clearing.

Most people use their lagering cooler or a serving fridge, if you don't have such a place I don't know what you would use. The colder the better down to freezing, and for as long as it takes to get it as clear as you want.
