Hello everyone
I brewed a smash brew 2 days ago added a tab of whirlfloc 15 mins before end of boil..i thought i had around 5+ gallons of wort since half of my 9 gallon kettle was full...once i got it into the fermenter i saw i only had 3 gallons which was mostly break material...anyway it was a disaster..im gonna bottle it and drink it anyway.. i OD'd on whirlfloc what will it do to the beer or my health haha??

Whirlfloc doesn't stay dissolved, it settles out, and brings haze causing proteins with it. Won't do anything to harm you, or your beer.
