Default I think I broke my pectin...

My blueberry wheat has been in secondary for four weeks and it won't clear. I think I must have set the pectin in it. Will finings work to clear this or should I try some pectic enzyme? Or should I drink cloudy beer?

it's a wheat beer, so just drink cloudy beer.

we are simply misunderstood.

I hope your wheat turns out well. I made a blueberry wheat in November, and had to dump it in the bushes in December (it soured.)

For crying out loud, stop your B*tching. Wheat beer is supposed to be cloudy anyways (LMAO)

I bottled this tonight. It' tastes like red wine. Not-bad red wine, too.
