I have cool garage where I store beer - its about 55F, can go bit lower...

Just one question - if I bottle the beer, wont the yeasties be all settled down after the crash and beer would not carbonate?

mhm, yea, night are getting really cool - can drop it outside as well overnight



Reason: adding

There will be plenty of yeast still in suspension even if you can't see it, unless you crash it for a year or two.

I've got the same question. Does cold crashing mess up bottle conditioning? I always feel like I should be handing out instruction manuals when I give away my beer. Could some one clear this up for us?

Ahh, that clears it up... in more than one way

Worst come, I can use balcony for overnight - cover fermenter with some PET bag to avoid rain/etc and I think it should be fine.

thank you!

P.S.
now I think that explains why my beers carb in room temp in just few days - plenty of yeast afloat, while it still looks clear, I think I should expect longer carbonation if I cold crash it.

Reason: P.S.

No, it'll start to freeze. Freezing is not gonna be good to you; racking will take forever.

Basically, you want sub 50*, 35* to 40* is great.

It'll need probably at least a couple days.
