after crash chilling is finished can you bottle the cold beer or do you raise back to around ferment temp?

You can bottle cold (I do this all the time). But the bottles will obviously have to come back up to ferment temp in order for them to carbonate.

As steinberg has said its perfectly fine once they warm up. Just a note of caution...they will have some moisture on them as they warm so best not to put them in a cardboard box.

Something else worth considering is that cold beer hold more CO2, so you will need to adjust your priming rates to some extent.

No you won't.

Base priming rate on hottest the beer was for any decent length of time (ignore sharp, brief spikes) during and after fermentation.

I've drunk all my homebrew and I'm still worried.

I bottle cold all the time.
Works fine, and I carbonate within the range for the style.

However, my personal preference is to always carbonate at the low end of the range, but that's just me.
