My blueberry wheat has been in secondary for four weeks and it won't clear. I think I must have set the pectin in it. Will finings work to clear this or should I try some pectic enzyme? Or should I drink cloudy beer?

we are simply misunderstood.

I hope your wheat turns out well. I made a blueberry wheat in November, and had to dump it in the bushes in December (it soured.)

For crying out loud, stop your B*tching. Wheat beer is supposed to be cloudy anyways (LMAO)

Man Cheyco, your beers come out! It's gonna taste great! Especially if you like blueberries It'll be cool and whats even more cool is if someone asks you about it being cloudy you can tell them wheats are cloudy Can't loose!

I bottled this tonight. It' tastes like red wine. Not-bad red wine, too.
