My Mr. Beer Cowboy Lager has been in bottles for about a week now and has clarified nicely. In a few of the bottles I have what appear to be a couple little (1-3mm) leaves suspended in the brew. I think they may be hops leaves, but I'm not sure. Will they settle in time or do I need to strain the beer as I pour it into my glass.

They'll settle out in another couple of weeks....That's why 3 weeks minimum in the bottle is a good thing...Plus when you put it in the fridge after it should settle further.

Even if they didn't I wouldn't strain the beer....you run the risk of oxygenating it and ruining it. If any floated up in my glass I'd just use a sppon and remove it.
