Mine was also perfectly clear. I have a hard time making a cloudy beer - nearly all of mine come out clear. It's a terrible problem to have I only use irish moss (and my keezer), but didn't use the moss in the BW... so it must just be me.

I used to use Irish moss in all of my beers but recently stopped using it and my beer comes out just as clear.

But hey, that sounds like a pretty serious problem;-)

Clearly time is the best clarifier (and good brewing practice?). The Irish Moss must just be there to make you feel good.

Thanks for the info on the yeast. So it's an ale/wheat hybrid. It was the premium yeast choice in the PM Berlin Wheat midwest kit. Dry,wyeast or white labs were the choices. Thought I'd try the activator this time...

Did the midwest kit tell you to do a sour mash? Or were they expecting that wyeast to have lacto in it?

I thought it did,since the name hints at a berliner weisse. And the activator pack said bav wht blnd on it. My mistake I guess. But the instructions don't say anything sour mashing. So I'm under the impression that it's an approximation of the original. But being partial mash,it'll be pretty good just the same,I imagine. I'll have to report my findings when I brew it.
