P.S. GilaMinumBeer is SupermossHB is that the same thing as Super Irish Moss?
Not sure. Supermoss is a 5 Star product. It's essentially the same thing (carrageenan) but in a powdered, purified form. I like it mostly cause nothing gets left behind in the kettle. It all goes through into the fermenter wher it does the most of it's work.
I used to just give props to time but, finings definitely take less time. I use it mostly for Lagers but still add it to some ales. I never add finings to English Ales mostly because I have seen very few packaged product from across the pond that were very bright.
