Default Warm up beer after cold crashing for bottling or bottle cold?

Hey guys,

2nd batch ever (Furious clone) which I cold crashed several days ago. Now I want to bottle it. Can I bottle cold or should I bring it up to room temp first? Thanks.

Steve

I'd warm it up a little myself. Wanna make sure the priming sugar mixes easily. That'd be my main concern. Other than letting the capped bottles come up to room temp before they start to condition.

I've bottled it cold and have had zero problems. One of them was a Furious clone that I had cold crashed

Just set it in place, where you plan to bottle/rack from, so you don't have to move it again, and the yeast cake stays nice and compacted.

Yep, me too. There is no reason to warm it up before bottling. Can't hurt, but there isn't any reason to do so if it's not convenient.

@blacks4.. Why don't you use hop sacks? It seems like you would have some floating hops in the beer and saving that nice yeast cake would be difficult.
