Im into my first 24 hours of fermentation and realized that I did not add my irish moss for clarification in the boil. Is there anything that I can do/add to get the clarification at this point? Its a Belgian Golden Strong and I dont want cloudy.

Time in the fermenter works pretty well too. I'd try 4 weeks with that beer.

If you're using WLP570, 4 weeks won't do it. I lagered my last one for 4-6 weeks after fermentation was done and it was still cloudy. Gelatin cleared it up in less than a week though.
