I've brewed a Proper Job clone - it's carbonated beautifully in the bottle - they're really 'tight' and it was starting to clear up nicely. I moved my bottles to a really cold conservatory but after the first 24 hours they've gone cloudy again.
Should I leave them where they are, or move them back to warmer temps?
I opened one and it tastes great, it'll clearly improve as time goes on, and don't want to lose the batch because I did something stupid.
Any help welcomed.

I ask about the same question a few months ago.

Cloudy beer after chilling

Although I noticed it with other brews, for those the haze was only very brief and over in a day or less. The brew that prompted me to ask the question took over 2 weeks to clear up in the fridge. It did taste somewhat nasty while the haze was in it. It was better after it cleared. But even then it wasn't anything I would be really proud of. I drank it all myself!
