How to clarify hard seltzer without killing the yeast? I want to bottle carbonate it.

If your seltzer recipe includes fruit, pectic enzymes works wonders. It works best if added before fermentation but will still work post. It will not harm your yeast.

I didn't have to use a fining agent at all in my batch. After I bottled and put a few bottles in the fridge for a couple days, mine was VERY clear. Like spring water clear.
I used a flavor extract for flavoring however, not a puree.
