Cold Crashing

Whats the best temp to cold crash at? I have a cream ale that I’d like to clear up.

Pop it in the fridge for a couple days. You’ll be golden. As the beer cools and the gas shrinks, your airlock may suck back inward. So keep an eye on that, and consider removing the airlock a couple times to equalize the pressure. Or you could place a sanitizer-soaked paper towel over the airlock hole.

Not really a problem unless your airlock is filled with plain water, or has something nasty like fruit flies in it. Give it a week to get really clear, if you can. :cheers:
