Default Chill Haze?

Howdy,

My beer is super clear until I put it in the fridge. Then It get's really hazy and never clears up. I use Irish moss as a clearing agent!

Any ideas why this happens and how I can get it to clear?

Thanks,
Marc

I've heard that gelatin in the secondary will help prevent this.

The lack of a cold break can cause a chill haze.

Are you making an ale or lager?

Some grains, if steeped instead of mashed, can contribute to chill haze, carapils is one, I am sure there are others.

A little cold conditioning clears up my beers. I put them in the fridge for about three weeks and they are crystal clear.

cold condition for 3+ weeks and it will clear up real nice, I usually can't wait that long so I only get clear beer towards the end of the keg.

This works wonders for my pale ales.

I have the same exact thing happen. I hate that.

On the upside, when my beer runs clear out of the keg, I know that I'm about to run out.

By using gelatin in the carboy a couple of days prior to brewing your beer will go into the keg clear...as long as you don't prime...
