I racked an American Cream Ale last night from the primary to a secondary after 11 days in the primary. Tonight I moved it from the basement into a fridge with the temp turned down pretty low.....I have put a therm in to monitor the temp, but I'm curious how long cold crashing (to get the sediment to drop out) normally takes? I know I'll have to leave it in the fridge for at least 7 days, just curious how long it normally takes.

I'm also curious. I guess it depends on the temp?
Do people that cold crash do it for every beer or just certain styles?

I've gone as short as a day as long as three. Either worked fine.
