If you do it enough times I find it smooths the mouthfeel out minimising twang.
In fact I find it helps with commercial bottled beers too. Like when u poor into a glass and there's crap head.
I find any beer has a twang if the head is poor, hb or commercial.

I've just bottled a batch of this as my first ever brew. It was in the fermenter for 14 days, though it went from OG 1.040 to FG 1.012 in about 9. I used Safale S-04 instead of the yeast included in the kit, and it was very active for a few days, with the airlock bubbling away like mad, before tailing off quite quickly.

It was pretty cloudy when I bottled it, so I was concerned that I'd done something horribly wrong, but reading this thread it seems that's fairly common. I now have to force myself to wait a few weeks to see how it turns out!

It should be ok if left for long enough. Get another brew on.
I've noticed all beer clears no matter how murky if left long enough to condition. Normally two months does the trick

Well, I got a bit impatient and opened up a bottle after two weeks. It was great to drink my first ever bottle of home brew - realising that I'd made a real beer! It's coming along nicely, a lot clearer than it was, and going down very smoothly. I'm looking forward to giving it time to clear out and develop more flavour, but I'm very happy so far.
