Something I have not been able to find searching the forums is what chilling actually does in the aging process. I heard somewhere that putting bottles in the fridge will stop the aging process but will help to settle out chill haze over time. Also, since Kegs need to be chilled before carbing, will this chill halt the aging process and so carbing should not be done until close to the time you plan to drink it?
I just need someone to clarify this for me. Because I know you can age cold, "lagering" but will ales age cold the same way?
