Default Can Chill Haze Leave a line on the bottle neck?

I have a hefe bottle conditioning right now and I put one in the fridge. It seemed to cloud up more and get a little line at the top. Could this be chill haze or should I be worried about lacto infection?



You can see the line at the water level. The reason I think it may be chill haze is because the un chilled ones don't have the line and look clearer.

Bottle Krauzen more likely....

It's most likely some kreusen and hop particles that didn't fall out.

Nothing really anything to worry about.

I use a bottle brush attached to my drill when cleaning my bottles. Works great.

I always used to get that when I bottled my Hefe's. My vote is for mini-krausen as well.

Even though it doesn't appear until refrigerated? Does the coolness make the krauzen coagulate a little bit?
