I'm about to bottle my Fat Tire Clone. I Crash Cooled it for a couple days and am about to transfer to a bottle bucket and prime. The beer will be at 60 degrees by the time the priming sugar is cool. Will the temp difference be an issue? It will condition at 70-75 F. I'm concerned about the difference between the 60 degree bottle temp and 70-75 conditioning temp causing expansion and Bottle Bombs. I don't "think" there will be enough difference but had to ask.

Probably a good idea to let it come up to around 70 F and then bottle it. How long has it been in the primary?

The expansion from 60 F - 70 F will be insignificant and will not cause bottle bombs.

The expansion would be about 1/4 of 1 % so in fact it would not be enough expansion to even add any pressure to the bottle let alone bottle bomb type pressures.

If you have beersmith you can program in the temp of the beer at bottling time, and it will adjust the amount of priming sugar needed.
