Thanks
The solution to that is to pour another pint!

I let it warm up to room temp (~60 in my cold ass apt)...it's cleared some, but still a bit hazy. So, possibly a combination of chill and hop haze?...we'll see what a couple weeks in the fridge does. I'll look into trying whirlfloc next time.

To be clear, I didn't mean my response to be sarcastic. It's just that the solution to most haze problems is to let the beer sit for quite a while longer, either at room temp or cellar temp.

If you wanna clear it, it's not too late. I regularly hit my kegs with gelatin after tapping and being unhappy with clarity.

Just sprinkle a packet of gelatin into 100-200 mL cold water, let sit 20 min, warm to 180, let sit 5 minutes, (no need to chill), then vent keg, pop lid off, dump in gelatin, seal lid back up (QUICK, cuz it will foam!), purge/vent with CO2 to get rid of any nasty O2 you just may have reintroduced.

In 24 hours in your keggerator, that keg will be crystal clear. (First pour may be hazy as it pulls out the gelatin, but after that you will be crystal).

I made a blonde this past summer that never cleared. Otherwise a few days at fridge temp does wonders. I've gotten really clear beer before when I forgot the Irish Moss. Just careful siphoning and cold crashing.

Ingredients can cause it too, as mentioned, but I am not sure what some of the worst offenders are. I don't worry too much about it because a little haze is no big deal to me.
