You can rack to a second fermenter (secondary) for a week or two to clear up the beer after about a week in the first fermenter (primary).

You can just leave it in the primary for longer.

You could add finings (I never do now but you can if you like).

Hard to know what to advise without more information. What are you doing at the moment Elvis?

Are you meaning at the bottom of the bottle after carbonation?

What the guys earlier said would be a good way to go. Racking to a second fermenter about a week in reduces by quite a bit.

However... that said, if you are bottling, you have to expect a certain amount of sediment because sediment is created during the carbonation process

yes thanks for the advice i've read and thought bout it a little and a second fermenter is the way to go and also bulk priming. I use stubbies so it was a pain in the ass primming them individually i will see how i go from now on ta elvis
