I used Isinglass to clear some apfelwien that I made and after one night it is perfectly clear. Now the package says to wait two weeks for clearing. Do I have to wait two weeks or can I bottle now? I know that this material is made from fish.....I don't want my apfelwien tasting like fish!!!

I would wait. Reason is you want the lees to compact. If you dont wait you will mix whats on the bottom when racking to bottling bucket. In turn you will not notice till in clear bottles or in a glass.
Remember the 3 "P's" !
