OK so I've been kegging for the last few years but need to bottle an upcoming batch. Back when I used to bottle I didn't cold condition or crash cool my beer because I was a noob and had no clue what I was doing. But now I cold condition for several weeks after reaching final gravity. Usually i cold condition in the primary and rack directly to the keg.

Has anyone had issues with getting bottles to carb properly with beer that has been cold conditioned? I would hate to cold condition beer for a few weeks and then find out the beer won't carb after bottling.

Usually I brew ales approx 1.050-1.055 OG 1.010-1.014 FG with nottingham dry yeast.

Thanks

Mike

Not a problem - I fine and cold crash my lagers so they are crystal clear and had no problem carbonating them. They may take a little while longer but they will carbonate.
