Heckler - are you using a extract recipe? That could be it. AG hefe's should be pretty light, if you use extract try the late addition method to minimize carmalization and keep it as light as possible

I'm confused....why would one add flour to a hefe? I've never had one clear even after a few months in the keg.

Insurance. No flavor with this minimal addition so there's no downside.

This was my first All-grain beer. 12 days to glass. Sorry for the hazy photo, the Iphone lens is scratched.

It was tasty (my friends drank 6 gallons in a few days)

Not sure, It really ws good though. In all honesty it was better about a week and even 2 weeks later from a balance of flavors perspective..

I don't worry about the cash, home brew is relatively cheap, and they are all eager to help brew more. I didn't turn away donations when I bought the 1/2bbl of DFH 90minute, but didn't care if I didn't got them either. It's all about the fun with friends.

What is your batch size, OG, how much yeast did you pitch, at what temp have you been fermenting?

There could be many reasons for what you're experiencing. If you under-pitched your yeast, it may take longer to complete fermentation. If you are fermenting very cool, it'll be slower. If you transferred to a secondary, you may have remove it from all the yeast that is necessary to clean up the byproducts of fermentation, thus leaving off flavors in the beer.
