I'm planing on switching to a conical fermenter soon. Will I be able to allow the cold break settle out in the cone and just drain it off before aerating and pitching?

Cold break really isn't that big of a deal. However, it floats, which means that you can start in a bucket or carboy and rack to the conical.

Cold break is pretty light weight. You can get a lot out if you let it settle for an hour or so before oxygenating, but about half will still be in suspension.
