I'm brewing an oatmeal smoked porter as i write this, and am looking forward to a creamy brew, would irish moss detract from a creamy body? thanks in advance!

Irish Moss has no effect on body. It attracts proteins that might cause haze.

I don't use irish moss on stouts - it helps clear the beer, which I don't need in a stout.
