Never cold crashed before, but have read so much about it, thought I'd give it a go on a American Pale Ale FWK, dry hopped on day three with 80gm Sapro hops. Anyway at completion of fermentation but in the fridge for two days then bottled. My Question: Was I meant to wait until the beer cooled down to room temp to bottle, or do brewers just bottle and prime cold? Thanks Guys.

Hi mate, cold is fine, I CCrash for two days then transfer to my 2 x serving kegs and into kegerator.
Let bottles raise to room temp for bottle conditioning to be effective.

You mean warmed up to room temp?

Nah mate, bottle it ice cold not a problem. Then make sure they stay at 20c ish. I found that 21 at 21 worked for me (21 days at 21c) but that's my opinion.
