Ok, back to the original question/problem: Are you seeing a visibly cloudy beer? If it is in a pale, I'm not sure how you can tell. Or are you just trying to cold crash because you think it is a step you should take?

eh, it was just to see if it could be done type of thing. my pales are ALWAYS a LITTLE cloudy, (but never bothers me, they taste great). just curious HOW clear I could get it since I never tried cold crashing before.

yeah I hear it. In the absence of cold temps (which allow multiple options for dropping stuff out of suspension and clearing beer), the only option I know of is longer time on the primary. Unfortunately, nobody wants to here that (me included). But it does help

Check out the BN's podcast series Brew Strong episode from 11/01/09, Beer Haze, with Dr. Charlie Banforth. I happened to be listening to this episode this morning. Before you try haze clearing techniques, you'll want to have a better idea of what might be causing it in your beers.
