The one I originally posted about was so cloudy/milky almost at 7 days that i racked it to secondary and put in isinglass. Moved the temp to the low end for yeast used (60ish) and it really seems to have helped. Bottling it tomorrow and will post a picture of a sample.

I use gelatin and the result is crystal clear beer.

In beers that are meant to be clear (IPA, Pale Ale etc) I use a whirlfloc tablet at 15 minutes during the boil. That combined with US-05 makes most of the sediment drop. If it is still cloudy in the fermenter it really clears up a day after being in the bottle. S33 Belgian Yeast is cloudy, but I expect that's the style of the yeast.
