Hey All,

I'm likely going to add isinglass to my brew, but as I'm about to rack to the secondary carboy I was wondering if it's ok to add the agent while doing a dry hop?

Will the agent reduce the flavors from the dry hop? Should I dry hop first, then add the isinglass? How many days should I add it for?

Thanks for your ideas!

Dave

I personally have never used isinglass. I use gelatin in mine. The thing with gelatin is you need to start to chill the beer to below 50*F and THEN add gelatin for best results. Typical practice is to dry hop first, let that sit for however long you want to dry hop, then chill and add finings and continue to cold crash.

I do not know how isinglass works but if it works anything like gelatin, I'd do your dry hop first and then do isinglass as a final step prior to packaging
