sometimesthe karusen hangs out till the end. It is fine. What yeast did you use? Some will keep a karusen for a loooooong time

If you used a true wheat/weizen yeast they are extremely slow to flocculate as having yeast in the beer is to style. If you can cold crash that will help but unless you are trying for a krystleweizen it's normal to be cloudy and desirable.
