Hey all,

I've never used any kind of finings before in my all grain brews, but I made a lighter beer this time around and I want to to try to clear it up.. I've got some isinglass, polyclar, and gelatin and I decided to use the polyclar as it seems easiest..

The package has no instructions but from reading the forums I've read to use about 5 grams in one cup of warm water in the secondary about a week before kegging. So......

Number one- Does this rate sound correct?

Number 2- Will it work if I only give it 48 hours instead of a week? I really need to get it kegged by sunday night..

Thanks for your help

When I used Polyclar in the past I just poured it in the carboy.

There's no need to add any water since it's just plastic particles.

When does it need to be ready to drink? You may have enough time to use gelatin. I add the gelatin to the keg and rack on top. By the time it is carbed, usually 7 days, it is crystal clear.
