This is a very brief question:

I forgot to add Pectic Enzyme to a few batches that are now about a week and a half in. I now fear they won't clear at all. Is it too late to add in now? Is there anything else I can do?



Thanks!

You can still add the pectic enzyme during fermentation. It just wont work as fast with the alcohol present. If it's not clear enough you can also use a fining agent. Stir a tablespoon of unflavored gelatin into 1 cups boiling water until dissolved, let it cool. Stir it into the batch, do this a few days before you bottle or keg.
