Are you force carbonating or priming and carbonating naturally?

Or, if you are expecting your HB to be as clear as store bought you rarely will get there without filtering. Link below is another thread on filtering for clarity...

How's the taste?

OK, sounds like you're experiencing chill haze. You won't be able to fix this batch but on future batches, here's what you can do:

Add a whirlflock tablet for the last 5 minutes of your boil.

Chill your wort from 213 to 75 as quickly as you can, perferable in 20 minutes or less.

Transfer to your fermenter taking care to leave the cold break and hops behind in the kettle.

Give it one week in the primary, then rack to a secondary.

Leave it in the secondary for 2 week then cold condition the secondary for 1 more week.

Rack it to your keg and carbonate.

You will find your beer to be much, much more clear and hopefully without chill haze.
