[rspec-users] stubbing out after_create AR method?

I have a Premise model with an after_create method, along the lines of:

class Premise < ActiveRecord::Base
  after_create :etl_attributes

In production code, etl_attributes accesses the web.  For testing I'm
using WebMock and VCR in cases where I want to test the etl_attributes
function -- works like a champ.

For all other tests, I want to create a real Premise object (I need it
for HABTM associations), but I want to stub out the call to
etl_attributes.  My problem is that I haven't figured out the right way
to do so.  The following DOESN'T work (it should be clear that I'm using
FactoryGirl as well):

      @premise = Factory.create(:premise)

... this still calls etl_attributes and WebMock gets appropriately mad.

What am I missing?
