More time for the cold crash as it take 24 hours just to chill, say three four days, steal one day from the front, and a day from the rear.

Sounds good - thanks!

I modified the original post to reflect the updated schedule.

Looks good. Despite the name I get more melon from Citra, perhaps cascade or sorachi ace, they seem more citrusy to me.

Cold crash is more effective at colder temps, just above freezing really drops the beer clear.

Fermentation 12 days @ 65 F
Cold crash 3 days @ 34 F
Keg condition 6 days @ 34F to 45 F

Likely have to force carbonate above serving pressure...roughly 20-30 psi for 24-36 hours.
