I finished my scottish ale this afternoon and forgot to add the Whirlfloc tablet to the boil. The yeast is now pitched into the wort (without whirlfloc)and waiting to begin fermenting. I am using the Wyeast Scottish ale yeast and fermenting @ 62 degrees. FYI- it was a full boil ending in 5 gal.
Is there anything I can do to clarify at this point? Is there any chance of getting a fairly clear beer now?
Either way, I'm sure it will taste fine. I am, however, a little nervious of the clarity- I don't have filtering or kegging; bottles for me.
Here's my recipe.
1 lbs. Weyermann CaraHell®
.187 lbs. Roasted Barley
.125 lbs. Melanoidin Malt
.187 lbs. Peated Malt
.125 lbs. Chocolate Wheat Malt

1 oz. East Kent Goldings (Pellets, 5.00 %AA) boiled 65 min.
.6 oz. Fuggle (Pellets, 4.75 %AA) boiled 50 min.
.4 oz. Fuggle (Whole, 4.75 %AA) boiled 15 min.
