gelatin ?

Postby jayhawk » Fri Mar 07, 2003 6:39 am

How long should I leave my beer after adding gelatin? I didn't add irish moss to the boil, so i used gelatin to clear the haze. So far, after 48 hrs, the beer has cleared substantially, but there are still alot of tiny globules of stuff suspended in the beer. Thanks

gelatin not for cold break

Postby Fraoch » Sat Mar 08, 2003 2:47 am

gelatin should only really be added at the end of 2ndary in order to clear any suspended yeast as a finishing agent.it is not intended to take the place of irish moss.Depending on the stage you are at you may well have not achieved a good cold break.This really, on the scheme of things is not really a problem you simply have excess protein etc in your finished beer. No amount of gelatin will clear this completely.Hazey beers not that bad,its just not fashionable.At the end of the day, if you are left with hazey beer it really, on the bottom line is the fault of the malt.After all, a good well modified 2 row malt WILL convert in the mash.Dont use gelatin to replace what you left out of the boil. Post boil is post boil.End of story.

I didn't realize that the gelatin was only for dropping the yeast. I wouldn't have bothered if I known. Guess I will just bottle it.
