14 days in the fridge should do it the world of good.

fwiw
after the 7 days of secondary with hops, you should bottle with a filter to remove any extraneous hops material. allow a week or 2 for carbonation in the bottles & then store in a cold place for a few weeks/months to allow the beer to clear. realistically, since its coopers, once its carbonated, its up to you if u drink it or put in fridge for a week+. depends on how patient you are :)

I mean in a "cube" in the fridge, any yeast that drops out in that time then won't make it into your bottles. Any dry hops added should by then be on the bottom of the cube and not be any nuisance in racking the clear beer out of the cube for bottling.

I would secondary at room temp for 7 days - then cc in the fridge for 7 days.

The hops usuually sink to the bottom - but lately they dont...hence i use my GMK In-Line filter prior to kegging/bottling bucket.

Hope this helps

Ken...
