Default Hazy beer question

My first AG was Edworts Haus Ale, it was crystal clear when I bottled it, I put a few in the fridge, and 24 hours later it is hazy, what is going on? Any replies welcome, thanks.

Yep Chill Haze. Caused by proteins.

Cold condition the beer in the bottles for about a month and it should go away. Do not cool-warm-cool-warm too often or it will become permenant.

The way to avoid it is to use a kettle fining, Irish Moss, etc. and to get a good hot break and a good cold break (ie chill fast.) Lagering in a secondary will also help (really it's the same as cold conditioning in the bottle.) Gelatin in the secondary along with cold crashing it seems to help too.
