Was the BMC Imperial Pils cold crashed then lagered? Here is his reply via email.

Quote:
Last year I was stepping on my own toes with doing 4 lagers using the same fermenter and really messing with the Diacetyl rests and cold crashing and lagering, so this year I emailed JZ and his advice was to hold it extra long at a constant 52degF and you won't need a specific diacetyl rest. So this year I did exactly that, but had to sacrifice the ability to cold crash since, again, I had 3 other lagers fermenting at different stages and didn't want to jeopardize crashing them as well. What I need is a 5th fridge or freezer to do cold crashing.


Never had any problems with diacetyl so his advice on that was golden.

(As for the BMC Pils) After lagering at 52degF, it was bottled and is still conditioning at 52degF. I guess a person could cold crash several bottles before drinking. how much time in a standard 34degF fridge would it take to settle the haze in a bottle?
