Whirlfloc Tablet? - Home Brew Forums

I just brewed my first beer but I forgot to add this whirlfloc tablet that came with the brew kit. I think it's supposted to help the clarity of the.

Just helps things precipitate out, will not alter flavor.

I find longer I let it sits, less sparkling it becomes. Sorry to bring an old topic back, but I'm trying to find a way to have no sediment in my wine when I give it out as gifts. I do the sparkling wines, so I bottle after about 1.5 - 2 months.

I just bought some whirlfloc and will use it when my Irish Moss is out. Not to highjack the thread but, would this be OK to add into a Mead? I was under the impression that the Irish moss would add a seaweed flavor, is there any taste impact with whirlfloc on a very light drink like a dry mead?.

1/2 a tablet for a 5 gallon beer Review by Dobson (Posted on 12/16/13) Product Rating:

I will try half a tablet in the future (as others have) and see how well that works. I have used these tablets in my last three batches, and have noticed very obvious settling and haze reduction. I used a whole tablet for each batch.

I crumble it into dust and dump it in during the last 5 minutes and it instantly causes the proteins to clump and settle.

Irish moss and whirlfloc tablets are used at the end of the boil, primarily to precipitate proteins during the cold break. Finings for the fermenter.

Whirlfloc tablets, like Irish moss, is derived from seaweed, but also includes additional purified carrageenan, which is the active ingredient in Irish Moss. One tablet is added per 5 gallons of wort during the last 10 minutes of the boil. Since it shares the same active ingredients as Irish moss, whirlfloc does a great job precipitating proteins at the end of the boil.

Finings added in the fermenter are usually added 4-5 days before bottling or racking the beer to give the fining time to precipitate yeasts and proteins and keep these out of the finished bottle or keg.

Whirlfloc: PRO- Works great everytime. I found it was even mildly better that IM, but that's tough to call. PRO- Tablet is great and no measuring.

The first time I tried it I was amazed at how clear my wort got. I chill by putting my kettle in a tub of cold water, and the visual effects of a Whirlfloc-treated wort when it hits about 25 degrees C are pretty cool. In my experience, Whirlfloc works better. I've never seen anything like it in my Irish Moss batches. I used Irish moss for my first couple of years, until I found Whirlfloc.

see an example newsletter.

But I'm not sure about the difference between the two post-fermentation.

Was going to brew today, but forgot to get a Whirlfloc tablet, should I

Brewing a really fun IPA today but realized I forgot to get whirlfloc tablets, want to know whether it would be best to wait and brew another day.

Really all Whirlfloc is going to do is help clarify your beer, which is a cosmetic effect.

I say just go with it. I'm not positive but I believe extract may get less benefit from the whirlfloc than all-grain. If you can cold crash for a few days before bottling, that will help with clarity as well.

I've never used Whirlfloc, ever.
