    Hi there,
    I've currently got 10 gallons of AIPA in the conical in my fermentation chamber.
    I've dry hopped it with:
    2.2 ounces Cascade - 7 days ago
    1.3 ounces Chinook - 7 days ago
    2.2 ounces Galaxy - 4 days ago

    I want to cold crash it before bottling so what do you guys do? I was thinking of dropping the temp to 35deg for 3 days or so.
    Cheers :)

    i personally do dry hopping 1 week at ferm temps, 2 weeks at cold crash temp (37ºF). Although you don't need to crash that long, i find aging cold for a couple weeks always tastes better to me.

    yes you could drop the temp in your conical for 3 days and then drain to bottle fine, going to a secondary isn't necessarily unless you can drop the secondary just as cold
