Default Finings

Anyone here recommend any VEGAN finings. I use irish moss already but would like some clarity in my beers.

Most other finings I find have shellfish and gelatin in them.

Increase time in primary fermenter and be careful when transferring to keg/bottle. Avoid all movement of fermenter, bottles, and keg if possible. I rarely use anything to add clarity and my beers tend to be crystal clear.

It takes a while but beers eventually clear on theur own. finings just speed up the process

I use gelatin with good results. 5-7 days later and clear beer. I age my beer a few weeks anyway, so the gelatin along with time give me clear beer. I do re-rack from one keg to another though. That way, I can move kegs from one fridge to another without waiting hours for it to settle.
