I have a gose fermenting now that should be ready to bottle this weekend. My homebrewing setup is very new (I've only been doing it for about 3 months), so I don't have temperature control during fermentation. However, my basement is very cold this time of year (40-50°F). I'm considering moving the fermenter (plastic bucket type) from my kitchen down to the basement for a few days in the hope that the lower temperature will improve the clarity of the beer.
How risky is it to move the fermenter near the end of fermentation? I'm worried that moving it down the stairs will cause sloshing and aeration, or disturb the trub and nullify any clarifying effect from the chilling. I added a Whirlfloc tablet near the end of the boil, does that reduce the benefit of cold crashing?
