I'm in week two of lagering my batch and it is very clear. I use whirlfloc in the kettle to settle things out, but I've also done batches without it and they come out just as clear in the end.

I'm considering putting mine into the keg and putting it on CO2 so it will be ready for a taste or two next weekend for the game. Then I'll let it sit for a few more weeks before I drink for real.
