Irish Moss (aka Carrageen)
Protein Coagulant / Beer Clarifier
1 Pound Sealed Bag
Irish Moss is widely used by brewers as an all-natural fining agent to produce brilliantly clear beers.
Also known as Carrageen. Irish Moss is a marine algae used to remove excess proteins from beer wort, eliminating excess proteins and producing clear beers that age better and have better flavor.
Irish Moss coagulates suspended protein in a liquid and causes it to precipitate out of solution. The effects of Irish Moss can be enhanced by cooling the wort as quickly as possible to fermentation temperature.
Usage: 1 level teaspoon per 5-gallon batch of beer.
Add: Last 10 minutes of boil.
Packaging: Poly-sealed plastic bag.
