Cold crashing was one of those things I started doing early on and I haven't got around to questioning why to do it. Now that I'm kegging a few batches it's striking me as redundant, at least for kegging. Why would I cold crash when I'm just going to chuck the keg in the kegerator and crash it some more. Less trub into the keg? I suppose so, but I'm not that fussed how much of the first few pours I lose to too much sediment. There's also a bunch of people talking about how evil it is from an oxidation point of view. While some of this sounds a bit hysterical (or maybe some of the lengths people go to avoiding it) I'm sure I'd prefer to avoid it if it doesn't have a lot of value. So maybe it's got a role in keeping the beer as clean as possible when I'm bottling (and with the beers I brew I'll always be bottling a fair amount of my brews). But again, a bit of sediment in the bottom of the bottle sounds like a lesser evil than extra oxidation. What do people think? Is it still something worth doing? Or just in some situations?
