So I bottled my first brew (a wheat beer) about a week ago. It sat in primary for about two weeks, and I didn't use a secondary. Now, after a week in the bottle, I see a lot of junk in the bottom. I expected this after reading around here, but this looks pretty deep, almost 1/16" deep. A lot more than the slight film I see in other peoples brews.
This isn't anything I'm worried about, but my question is.... Is this typical for a wheat beer, or is it just settling out because I didn't put it into secondary? Also, if I don't go into secondary, should I leave it in primary longer? My fermentation was over after a week according to the hydrometer, and I left it another week to keep the junk out. So much for that idea
