Default cloudy beer

I put my beer in a carboy and its really cloudy. I was thinking about adding geltan to see if that would clear it up or should i just wait and see if it clears on it own.

How old is it? Time will help if you aren't in a rush, you could try cold crashing if possible.

I've never used gelatin but I've used 'super kleer' a few times on wine and beer and it's worked great each time. Its a two-step clarifier, works in less than 72 hrs if I remember correctly.

It probably isn't done fermenting yet and the cloudiness is from the yeast action stirring it up. Give it time and it will clear up without any gelatin.

Yea I'd give it more time, at least 12 days or so before you worry about the clarity. But if you aren't in a hurry and would really prefer a clearer beer give it a month and you should be good.
