Cold crash

    I'm going to try cold crashing.

    Is this correct.

    -Rack off fermentation bucket into bottling bucket

    -Put bottling bucket in the fridge for 2 days

    -Batch prime



    I suppose my question is if I batch prime will I just stir up the crap that has settled during the cold crash ?

    There probably won't be much forming over two days, but if it's bothering you, just rack to a fresh bottling bucket and prime there. I would certainly prefer to rack the beer on to the priming solution to ensure it mixes through evenly.

    Thanks BeerNut,

    I'll think I'll double rack it and see how I get on. I'll report back in a few weeks.
