I have a painfully slow fermentation going in a unitank with a massive (9lb/Bbl) dryhop charge. The fermentation is slow due to an under pitch of Imperial Juice (The starter was doing its best impression of a volcano. There were significant losses). The hops have now been in the tank for 11 days and I’m getting pretty concerned about having an expensive glass of lawn clippings once it’s done. Crashing and dumping would get plenty of the hop matter out, but it would take the yeast along with it and I’m still about 7 gravity points from where I want to end up. I’m guessing most of the hop matter is down in the cone and hopeful some of the yeast that’s still on the job is floating about. If you were in this situation, would you leave the temp alone and dump what’s in the cone?
