Default Yay! for whirlfloc!

I did it! After 3 batches of cloudy beer, I finally tried whirlfloc. Wow!

I love whirlfloc! I have clear beers, and I never use gelatin or other after fermentation finings. It's great!

From the Net...

Whirlfloc is a purifed form of high molecular weight carrageenan extracted from red marine algae (Rhodophycae) and manufactured exclusively for use as a wort fining agent. It accelerates the formation of dense and compact hot and cold trub, saving time, boosting wort recovery and resulting in considerably brighter worts.

Yes its a secondary. This was 1 week primary 2 weeks secondary.

I tried to make sure I cooled this off as fast as possible. I don't have a wort chiller yet, so I used an ice bath and a couple sanitized frozen bottles of water. It was by far the best cold break I've had.

Oh and I dumped everything in the primary break and all.

This was my first attempt. Its a bad picture but you get the idea.

Yeah, I get crystal clear carboys with it too, but I still get chill haze. a month in the fridge seems to take care of that though, so don't fret if it clouds up when cold.
