Default Cold crashing Safbrew T-58

I made a Belgian wheat with this yeast and it's been in secondary for a little while. I know the style doesn't call for a crystal clear beer, but I don't want to drink mud either.

Anyways, probably the top 1/4 of the carboy appears to have crashed, so I got a ways to go.

Is it worth it to cold crash it? I've only cold crashed Kolsch yeast for pseudo-lagers in the past with gelatin and that worked well.

I only ask because I happen to have room in the kegger.

Thoughts?

Wheat beers are generally not fined or cold crashed. They are meant to be cloudy -- especially hefe/dunkelweizens and wit beers. (Although some styles are meant to be clear, this isn't one of them.)

It's been in the low 60s for a week, and the top 3rd is def light than the bottom two-thirds. It's not clear by any means, but it;s not the mud the bottom third. I suppose I should just let it sit until it all looks the same, then carb it.
