I'm coming down to the end of my two weeks waiting on my beer to be finished fermenting, and in the two times I've checked on it there has been a significant amount stuff floating on the surface. I am making an American Wheat Ale in which I substituted one half gallon of water for one which was the product of steeping the peels of two blood oranges and adding the fruit of four. Basically what I want to know is how can I separate all the trub and blood orange gunk from the sweet, sweet beer? I figured I would rack it into my bottling bucket, add my priming sugar, then bottle, but I want to make sure that when people drink it it isn't like a beer with pulp.
Thanks

Time is your best friend. I'd let it sit in primary another week. You'll be amazed at how much drops out.

I was afraid you'd say that, patience is a virtue I suppose. The strange thing is that it is still bubbling, I guess adding all the orange bits gave the yeasties something to do. Doesn't the fact that it is still fermenting effect the clarity?
