The one thing you can do to try to ensure clear beer is to not transfer trub from the primary to the secondary and then to your bottle/keg.

Too many time people will try to transfer 100% of their brew. I always recommend making 1/4 - 1/2 gal extra for this loss.

Other than that you can use Irish Moss in the boil or Polyclar, Isinglass, Gelatin or Finings in the secondary.

You TAKE as much as you can FROM the PRIMARY, but you HAVE TO leave the TRUB behind. Repeat the same process FROM the secondary.

The more you transfer the more will end up in your bottling bucket and bottles.
