Also, citric acid is sold in every grocery store I've been in as a cleaner for coffee makers. Check the ingredients though. There are several varieties.

I usually use gelatin in the secondary to really clear it up. It overtime seems to crash out chill hazing even a bit. For whatever reason on my last batch of pale ale, the yeast/gelatin stuck to...

Depends on what you like. If you like citrusy APA's, then add some more cascade up around 20 to 0 minute range. It's hard to tell what that beer will be like without seeing a recipe. I've seen...

I'm not sure about the chill haze, but I've always had good luck with gelatin. I just got my first batch with chill haze recently, and didn't use any gelatin. I don't know what is to blame really.
