Yeah, there's a fine line between mixing in evenly and foaminess.  Found it out once  ;)   I'm not against the 'cheating' either - it would solve a lot of hassles there.

I believe brett is incapable of fermenting proteins and the clarity you are seeing is the result of time dropping the beer clear.

Would a wheat beer drop clear at all given enough time? First time I heard about that happening **puzzled**

It takes less time than you might imagine.

Can someone rename this thread?

Or perhaps we'll take the haze-off-topicness elsewhere instead.

I'm kinda fond of this vomit thread, personally :)
