Default My Bost Ale Clone Cool Storage

The recipe I have says nothing about keeping the secondary cool or for how long but the Sam Adams web site says their boston ale is fermented in cool "stock cellars" It doesn't say how cool. If I keep my secondary in my basement at around 55 degrees how will that effect my beer. Will it kill my ale yeast? I don't want a flat beer when bottling?

55F in the secondary will be fine...in fact it will really help with the clarity.

55F is a typical cellar temperature & won't kill the yeast.

Four weeks is fine...my patience would probably expire around two!

Not very well, or at least not very quickly. Generally bottles are stored around 70F or so until they carbonate.

Well I am going to only do the secodary at 55 and keep it in bottles at around 70 for carbonation is this a bad idea?

Not a bad idea, that's the right idea. Keep your secondary at 55F for a few weeks, then bottle and keep those around 70F for two or three weeks. After they carbonate you could optionally move them back to 55F for 'cellar storage' or refrigerate them.

After a beer has been in the secondary for 2 weeks to a month can there still be a problem with chill haze?
