Dry-Hopping with Pellets - Cold-Crashing?
« on: September 09, 2012, 04:44:44 pm »
Can I cold-crash my IPA to get the dry-hop pellets (bits and pieces) to drop out without dropping too much yeast (I may bottle-condition this one)?

I plan on racking to secondary after a couple of weeks in on the cake where I'll add a couple of ounces of hop pellets and let 'em sit for a week before bottling. Question is; can I drop the temp low enough to get the hops to settle out without causing too much yeast to also drop out? Is so, what is a good temperature to shoot for here?
