I don't bottle my lagers, but here's my rough schedule when i make lager. Let it ferment for at least 2 (usually 3) weeks at 12c then rise up to 16 for a couple of days . Transfer to a clean sanitized vessel and cool to 1-2 c for at least 4 weeks , 6 better then keg and carb. Beer is usually nice and bright by then, you don't really want to rush lager.

Larger = bigger ;)

Lager is from German for a beer that is stored and has become a term for this style of beer where it is 'lagered' for a period of time to achieve its distinctive characteristics.
During this lagering period which is normally at low temperatures for a few weeks, helps with the clarity issue.
If it was not clear when you bottled then try and store it somewhere cool for a while.

It is one of the more difficult and time consuming types of beer to make properly.
