Clearing dosen't magically stop in a bottle or keg, in fact it happens faster. A beer still dropping in gravity at two weeks is a problem, probably from poor aeration or temps way lower than they should be. My lagers are at FG in less than a week and that is perfectly normal from what I've read.

All generalizations are wrong....

I agree you have to follow the fermentation. Some seem to prefer to just ignore it. I guess that's fine too. I just like a more hands on approach over the head in the sand approach advocated by so many here. Hydrometers are handy little tools.
