Okay, I made my first brew, which the kit said was Lager, but after previous discussion on the forum, has been decided is a "Lager stlye" beer, and followed the instructions perfectly. I let the bottles clear, and theyve been clear for about 2 weeks now, but when placed in the fridge they go cloudy again... any ideas? Thanks

That is known as chill haze. It won't affect the taste, but if you want to avoid it in the future, using a Wort Chiller is a good way to do it, since it has to do with the cold break.

Reno Homebrewer beat me to it. The first time I actually thought I could answer a question and be pretty certain on the answer!:D

It doesnt, no worries. In the future you'll start chilling you wort quickly and that stuff will precipitate out before it can get into the bottle...
