Sure, 40 degrees would work. It depends on what is causing the haze, but it should clear in 2-7 days. If it's a yeast haze, it'll clear fast as the yeast fall out. If it's a chill haze, it might take 7 days or even longer. If it's a fruit beer with a pectin haze, it might never clear!

If the beer is already pretty clear, though, it should be fast.

I clear out the corner of the family fridge and put the Carboy in, turn the temp down about (36 deg.) and let it Crash Cool for a couple of days. Gives my Girlfriend something to complain about.

All you ever wanted to know about beer haze with Dr. Bamforth.

If you listen, he'll say to get the beer to 29*.
