Been experimenting with the set and forget method, however tonight I got impatient and rigged the gas line into the beer out, and pumped up the pressure. Obviously all the bubbling undid whatever natural sedimentation which had already taken place. What I am unsure of is, will carbonation slow the rate at which the beer will now drop bright?

Gas in / Beer out does it make difference that is worth it

Short answer no, if it's cold the yeast won't be active and will be dropping in any case. if is is warm and conditioning naturally, the yeast will continue to consume the available fermentables.

So might be a little cloudy.

It's not going to make much of a difference unless you're an impatient c---- (like me) :D
