Let me know if this is a good idea: Wyeast German ale 1007(I think), went 2 weeks in primary, now in secondary. Beer was still very cloudy, so I put it into my new beer fridge along with my lager ( I did a side by side experiment) to chill a bit. The ale seems to have cleared even after 12 hours.
My thought is that it was still fermenting a little (SG was at 1.012 from 1.060, so not much fermenting was going on) and that I'd let it settle in cold temps for a while, raise the temp to 70F, stir up a little sediment as I prime it and then bottle.
Basic question is: can I hurt/kill the ale yeast with 40F prior to bottling? and is this a good idea to get clearer ale beer?
