Hi Guys, I have an Ed Wort House Pale Ale in my secondary for about 5 days. I want to make it the clearest possible, so I know I need to crash cold the secondary for several days, but I'm not sure when. Should I wait another 10 days an then crash cold or can start the ice bath now? Another question, how cold is "crash cold"? I don't have a fridge for my secondary so I use a big cooler full of water and iced bottles.
The other thing is when I racked from the primary to the secondary, I tasted a little bit and it was really bitter. Will the hard bitter taste mellow after 2 weeks in the secondary?
Thank you for your help.
