Should I cold-crash this beer for a few days to stop fermentation and promote clearing? If so, what temp?
Too low? In a saison? No way, it'll be great!
I wouldn't recommend cold crashing to stop fermentation... if it's not done and fermentation restarts in the bottle your could have more carbonation than you planned for. Although at 1.000 you probably don't have to worry about bottle bombs, you really don't have too much left to ferment... Have you calibrated your hydrometer and you're sure it's 1.000?
If you're only on day 10 I'd give it a little more time and see if more yeast drops out on it's own. Otherwise it's up to you, if you're concerned with clarity and have the capability I don't see why cold crashing would hurt, but I'd give it another week or more to finish fermenting and let the yeast clean up after itself before you do that.
