Isinglass

I'm debating whether or not to use finings (isinglass specifically). Will it cause so much of the yeast to settle that I won't have enough left to bottle carbonate?

Finings are fine!

I use Irish moss myself. I usually allow two weeks in the secondary with ales and then I bottle. Typically I have to allow about 3 to 4 weeks for the beer to carbonate, but my batches have always carbonated. The clarity is worth the wait as far as I'm concerned.

Finings are In!

Thanks much for the tip, Jeff. I added the finings about 1 week into the secondary and left it there a week. I'll bottle it tonight, it's a Porter and I can't wait to sample it!
