Does the chill haze impart any off-flavors, or it's just a problem to the appearance?
Man, could is very acceptable to me.Pedipano: Like BigK said, chill haze is has no effect on flavor or aroma. It is just some extra proteins that have come out of solution and will, given the chance, settle out to the bottom. If anything, chill haze indicates that your beer could be less stable over time because of the protein content, but that's about it.
