Cold Crash / Lagering

Robert the Brews

Recommended Posts

Hi Fellow Captain. Cold crashing is to basically bring yeast and other solids out of solution and settle on the bottom. The outcome is to achieve a very clear beer and reduce the amount of sediment when you bottle or keg. Usually a necessity when doing all grain brews.

Now lagering does the same but a lot more in terms of maturing, flavour and crispness thus improving the beer. The lager is left at very cold temperatures for weeks and sometimes months. It is a broad subject so if you can, have a look at “what is lagering” on the net.
