If you have a chest freezer with a temperature controller, cold crash it for a week or so at 36 - 38. If you don't, let it sit in the fermenter for a few extra weeks and be very, very careful transferring.

Dont have a chest freezer..
I have a styrofoam box that I put ice blocks in

I guess you mean i should dry hop for 7 (or so) days, then pull the bag of hops out and let it sit in the fermenter a couple of weeks after that (without the dryhoping hops)?

For best hops aroma and flavor, you'll want to dryhop for the last 5-7 days before packaging. If you wait a couple of weeks, then much of the hops flavor and aroma will be gone.

Yep, and that was why I asked Darwin18 about about the timing. I mean, my problem was hop haze from dry hopping. If the solution would be to let it sit in the fermenter a couple of weeks extra, it would have to do that after the dry hops were added (and removed).

Okay, so the beer I was concerned about has now been 2 weeks in the bottle. No gelatine or any alternative was used, and no cold crash. And for some reason it's more clear than any beer I have ever made after just 2 weeks in the bottle (3 week primary, last week with dry hops). I left it in the refrigeration for a couple of hours yesterday, and no chill haze either

I've used a product called "Polyclar" in the secondary which made VERY clear beer quite quickly.... ****ty stuff to work with though as it's insoluble and very powdery/dusty and gets everywhere, just from opening the bag.

A good floccing English yeast helps. I find my pale beers with whirlfloc and English yeast (with a solid cold crash) will be crystal in 2 weeks. Using an American strain can take 3-4 weeks.

You do realize this is a 2 year old thread?
