isinglass holding time??

Postby bredmakr » Wed Jun 04, 2003 10:22 am

I just added isinglass to my beer, which was already at 40F. How long do I need to wait for it to settle out? If residual isinglass remains will it have adverse effects on the flavor profile? Hypothetically speaking, if I had a friend that racked from secondary to a keg, then brought the beer down to 40F, then added isinglass to the keg would I recommend to my friend to rack again to a fresh keg or could I, I mean my friend, leave it there to settle and pour out the first couple of glasses...How long would my friend have to wait before force carbonating?

I'd rack back into another keg.
Also, make sure your isinglass is refrigerated. It will store longer(6 months)Its been in there for 5 days now, so it has definitely filtered by now.
