    Hi all
    I've always forced carbed beers that are clear so I crash cool in a corny, force carb and then bottle using a beer gun.
    My question is, if I crash cool a hazy beer to do the same process would this clear the beer or reduce the haze. I have been told that force carbonation should be done with cold beer.
    What do you do to carbonate hazy beers without affecting clarity?
    Thanks

    It may reduce the haze a touch. I'd just turn the keg upside down for a few minutes before bottling. I've done that for draught a few times, but don't really bother any more. I find it's weeks with cold that reduces it if you've got a real haze.

    That's a good idea never thought of turning the keg upside down. Thanks pal

    My hazy's stay hazy in the keg, after force carbing for about a day and a half to two days at 30#. I don't know what effect bottling with the beer gun might have.
