We just made a Belgian White. Now I know that when you get a wheat beer like this from the store it is also unfiltered. So would it be proper drinking technique (for best flavor like its meant to be) to swirl up the yeast? Or pour off and leave the cake behind?

P.S. Should I drink holding my pinkie out or keeping it in? :P

Pinkie in for beer. Out for wine.

I'm a noob. Only have 5 batches under my belt, but from reading other posts, I think most folks would say try and leave the sediment in the bottle.

But then I found this post:

We're talkn about he yeast in the bottle right? If so you can swirl that last ounce or 2 and then pour it in. Most of the yeast used for these types of beers have low flocculation for that reason , so they stay in supsension. Its really up to you and your taste preference. In a keg, this is hard to do, so we just drink them young before all the yeast settles out.
