Works well. Do not use on beers that are supposed to be cloudy (ie, wheat).July 12, 2013works wellwhat can i say it dose what it says and it works wellAugust 28, 2014Great way to clear beerMy brew partner and I started using this as a way to make a clearer beer after some of our friends pointed out how cloudy some of our beers were and haven't looked back. Add a bit if this in the last 15 minutes of the boil and you'll have yourself a really nice and clean beer. No funny aftertastes, and it's all natural, which is something we pride ourselves on very much.

- Browse 3 questions Browse 3 questions and 4 answersWhat are the advantages of this product, if any over Whirlfoc?BEST ANSWER: I've never used Whirlfloc so I can't speak for how good of a job it does. I've always been satisfied with Irish moss and it's about half the price of Whirlfloc. Lastly, from what I've read, Whirlfloc has carrageenan in it which is a known carcinogen. I try to stay away from items with carrageenan in them (and yes I realize pretty much everything nowadays has some link to cancer).Is this more for the golden beers, pilsners, ales, or can this be used for stouts and porters? I'm just r Ying to get rid of the junk in the bottom of the bottle. Using a secondary next batch. (Only done the 1 gallon thus far) thanksBEST ANSWER: Hi there,
Irish moss can be used in any beer and is used in the last 5 minutes of a boil. It's generally used as a clarifier by helping proteins clump together. Cheers!I see it's 1 tsp per 5 gallons. Is there any measurement if you're just making 1 gallon jugs? (I guess I could say 1/5th tsp but that seems pretty darn small)BEST ANSWER: You would just scale it down, it would be fine to go with 1/4 tsp. You don't want to overdo it, the 1/4 tsp should work fine. -Mike W, Northern Brewer
