If you leave them in there for 3+ days before drinking, that serves as a cold crash of the yeast that has been there carbonating the brew.

The nice thing about doing it in the fermenter is that you gain an opportunity to leave more of the initial trub behind so that it never makes it into the bottles or keg.

Exactly what I found to be true. I found it much easier to transfer the wort and leave the trub behind. The trub was just heavier, for lack of a better way to explain it. The wort was cleaner as such I expect there to be less sentiment in the bottles.

Next time you're in O-town check out http://www.urbansunshine.com. They sell gardening and homebrewing supplies and give out samples of their homebrew at some of their locations. The Altamonte location has more brewing stuff than the other locations.
Didn't know there was anyone else in Orlando besides Hearts. Thanks for the info.

There's also the home brew store on the Narcoossee St. Cloud line just north of 17/192. Waaaaay friendlier than Heart's, not that that's saying much!!! Where are you located?

College Park, off Princeton and I-4

Heart's is convenient to me, to say the least, and for their size they've got a lot of stuff, but I'll admit they're not falling all over themselves to make you feel at home.

I have cold crashed before but don't do it consistently. It for sure helps get the yeast out of suspension. As for the vaccume problem I did have some issues with that but then I went to my LHBS and got a stopper without a hole in it and problem solved. It does vaccume but the stopper prevents anything from getting in.

Demus, If you are referring to Urban Sunshine there are 4 locations, although the Altamonte Springs location has the most brewing supplies. They can usually get whatever you need to any location quickly.
