Cold conditioning bottles
 
Thanks to the advice on this board, I now try to keep ready-to-drink bottles in the fridge for a week or two to let the chill haze proteins settle out. I end up with a crystal clear beer if I can keep my hands off long enough! It's a beautiful sight.

The question I have is - If I cold condition for a couple weeks in my fermentation fridge, then pull the bottles back out and let them warm up to room temp, will the precipitate stay precipitated or will I end up with chill haze again? I only have so much fridge space, and thought I'd utilize the fridge while I don't have anything fermenting, but I'll have to pull them out when I brew the next batch.

Thanks!

I've done this a few times without chill haze issues, but I haven't done it enough to tell you for certain that you won't have an issue.

when I had chill haze it was clear warm,and only got hazy after it got cold. And when the glass was half empty and warmer it got clear.
