Default bottle conditioning forever....

I have 3 beers bottle conditioning right now. they are all fully carbed, but they all have a little cloudyness and are clearly not finished. Haven't payed to much attention to them. 2 of them have been bottled for 2+ months and 1 for 6 weeks. they haven't seen any fridge time yet so they all just got put in there. should the fridge help them out? I've never had this happen before, normally my beers are cleared up before I fridge them.

What's the problem? What is wrong with a little cloudyness?

Depends on the yeast. Some yeast is low flocculating and will not settle well. What yeast did you use? Refridgerating the beer will help it settle.

Were they extract or AG? Chlorine/chloromines cause this reaction. But I remember reading things about AG processes that can cause this as well. Still trying to get a handle on this grain stuff myself. More ways to mess up...

"Band-aid taste" is sometimes caused my chloro-somethin or others. What'd you use to sanitize?

As for the cloudiness, when did you add the extract to the boil and did you use whirlfloc/irish moss/any clearing agents? Refrigeration might help it, and it might take awhile to clear up in the fridge.

Don't sweat the cloudiness. Some of my favourite beers have stuff floating in them.

its not that they are cloudy that bothers me. they taste bad and they are my only cloudy beers I've made. I use Iodaphor as a sanitizer. My first beer ever was cloudy when i tried it 4 weeks after i bottled it, but then a week later they cleared up perfectly and tasted great. I just don't understand how these can be in the bottles for so long and not taste good or look good yet.
