I have my fat tire clone cold crashing right now and am ready to keg. But I want to bottle a few as well.
I thought I read somewhere that you have to bottle at room temp but you can keg while its cold.

Am I correct in that?

I don't think it matters what temp you bottle at, but you'll need to warm them back up to get them carbonated.

Oh ok. I thought adding the priming sugar at a lower temp might affect the taste maybe?

Nope....your yeast will just hybernate at lower temps, so they won't carbonate your beer. You need to get up to room temp for the yeast to be active.
