I have a citrus weizen in the primary right now, and I was planning on giving it my five gallon carboy once my apfelwein was done, but it looks like it will need about a week or so longer.

Since weizens are cloudy and I'm using WLP300, I'm not expecting much benefit from clearing. Should I just wait two more weeks, per the recipe, or do I need to wait longer for a long primary to work properly?
Zorillo Brewery: Jinxing the hops since 2010.
Primary: Edwort's Robust Porter, Hard Lemonade
Secondary: Air
Bottled: Apfelwein, Wheat Stout, Edwort's Haus Pale Ale
Thinking about: more Citrus Hefeweizen, Strawberry Blonde, Apple Graff, Lambics
