    Hello' My fellow brewers, I'm new to brewing and love everything about it with the exception of cleaning the bottles.. looking to invest in a canner asap, Anyways I'm five batches in and I have bottled up my first Hazy IPA and noticed everything has settled during the final fermentation.. I have figured out that I have to roll the bottle like a Shock top Belgium white to mix it up and so the beer is cloudy again, What is the reason for this.. is it mainly do to me bottling the Hazy over kegging or what?

    Sounds like the exact opposite of a problem I had the past couple of years. All of my (I)PAs remained cloudy, no matter how long I (bottle) conditioned them.
    I doubt it has to do with bottling vs kegging. If it is anything like what I dealt with, it is "just" a matter of recipe and/or process.
    First thing I would ask is, "what should be making the haze"? Once you know that, you can look at what in your process/recipe is causing it to dissappear...
