I just ordered some ClarityFerm as well. What is your experience with it?

Does it clear beer as well as say, BioFine?

I have all of them, clarity ferm, biofine and isinglass.

whirfloc + gelatin is the best combo for me.

I used ClarityFerm as part of my Paleo/Primal lifestyle diet, to reduce Gluten, for me removal of chill haze would be a side benefit.

I've had no problems with the clarity of my beers and usually use a kettle fining such as protofloc and gelatine in the primary plus crash cooling just to speed things along, I have also used Isinglass and Polyclar 730 in the past.

Time, patience, a good 90 min boil (enough to secure a hot break - no not the same as the initial foam) and a crash cool all help with clearing, auxillary finings are really to speed the removal of yeast or deal with a problem such as chill haze.
To brew or not to brew, that would be a stupid question !

Thanks guys!

I am usually fairly happy with Whilfloc + Agar-agar combo, however want to try other finings out there (also had good results with fresh BioFine).

I have read somewhere that ClarityFerm removes enough gluten from beer to be suitable even for certain Celiac patients.

For low gluten lovers, buying this works out much cheaper: http://www.themaltmiller.co.uk/index.ph ... ductId=944

I've used successfully on a few brews now.

Hi cpa4ny - what's your process for using agar-agar? I have some of this knocking around as I use it to make plates for culturing yeast. This sounds like a good option that is not made out of something grim. I don't usually bother to fine, as all beers settle out over time, but a couple of recent heavily dry hopped beers were a bit soupy, and could have done with a bit more clarity - they tasted great though!

I use Irish moss atm, I think my next beer is going to be a purist beer following the strict German Reinheitsgebot regulations.

I like a bit of haze in my beer, because then I know it's a real beer.

Cheers :drink:

Good choice. I use irish moss, time and gravity.
