I have really hit terminal gravity (I was @ 1.016 when I tasted it), b.) I have something else like Lacto/ Pedio, or Brett in there. and c.) give the yeast a chance to floc a bit more. I tasted it 2 days ago (crazy young) and it tasted really very clean and mild. Not much in the ester departement. No sourness, no off-flavors. my base beer was basically this:
45% white wheat malt
16 IBU of Hallertau, bittering only.
The whole Idea was to give it just enough body and bitterness that I would taste mostly the yeast and not alot else.
