The yeast In Hefe is actually a desirable thing. True hefe is unfiltered with yeast and is cloudy looking when served the bottle is rolled or swirled slightly to mix the yeast in the beer. I dont know much about brewing yet but I know good hefe's because Ive been drinking them for more than a decade.

Lol Thats actually a nickname my friends gave me after drinking a ton of beers and that song came on the radio, I started robot dancing and I guess Im a natural because they told me it looked awesome and so they called me Mr Roboto ever since... In fact when we drink now they ask me "would you like to roboto"?

I was given advice to store hefe bottles on their side, so that the yeast collects along the side of thebottle instead of the bottom. Then when you turn upright to open and then tip to pour the yeast is re-suspended.

I don't think it matters,as long as it gets poured.

You guys got me, I am listening to my STYX cd. I went to their concert back in June, great concert but the one song they didn't do was Mr Roboto, I was a bit disapointed.

That's genius! I think I'm gonna do that with half the batch and see how it goes.

Totally normal man. I lived in Bavaria for about six years and every bottle of Hefe that I drank had the yeast in the bottle. If you don't like the taste then just leave it in the bottle
