You could use gelatin to clear the yeast. I did that once with juice fermented with baker's yeast and it worked very well. Search 'gelatin fining' or some such. Basically, you chill the beer/wine/whatnot and add some rehydrated unflavored gelatin (like Knox).

Edit: that assumes that the haze is caused by yeast, and not by some contaminating bacteria.

That's a very good suggestion, thanks. I've found several retailers on Amazon of various types of fining agents and they're cheap too.

I just used baker's yeast on a batch. It took 5.5 gallons of 1.075 down to 0.990.

Just order a brick of wine or beer yeast. 500g brick isn't very expensive. 20 - 40 bucks.

Usea vacuum sealer and stick your vacuum sealed bag/brick in a freezer for storage. I have yeast that is 3 years old and still useable.

Human, what are you actually trying to achieve through this? Knowing what product you want at the end will make answering the question easier. What fermentables are you using?--I'm a bit confused by the '"wine"--whatever it is' comments.
