On Saturday I took everything (kegs included) out of my keezer to clean it. Needless to say the movement has stirred up the sediment and the beer is no longer crystal clear. Will it clear up in a few days or do I need to add gelatine again ?

nup just leave it, should clear up pretty quickly as most of the yeast already dropped out of suspension and removed in your first few pours.

Thats true. I'll give it two weeks and see what happens.

This has happened to me a few times before. It usually clears up quickly as the yeast has flocculated to large chunks and settles out quickly. But what is settling will have to go through the keg, unless your dip tube is off-center.

To remedy this, especially in paler beers, I like to jump the beer into a fresh, sanitized keg when clarity is what I want it to be.

So far so good. Its been less than a week and all the kegs except a lager have cleared up nicely.
