new to home brewing and wondering what the point of cold conditioning is
The temperature slows everything down which encourages particles to fall out of suspension... leads to clearer beer.
At lower temps many of the haze causing substances will coagulate into bigger particles. Stokes law says those will settle out much faster. Since particle size is the R^2 term, it has the big term in this.
Cold conditioning also increases the shelf life of a beer. I'm not sure why.
You forgot to carry the 2.
Simply slows down staling/oxidation reactions in the beer.
