7/5/2009 -- I've had some irish moss for about a year now. It has'nt been refridgerated or anything and is quite dry. I added it to my last beer and was wondering if it would still work.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Sure, it will still work. No need to refrigerate it. It is dried seaweed, after all...as long as it hasn't gotten wet, it will do it's job!
12/30/2008 -- I forgot to add irish moss to the boil. The wort was cooled, the yeast pitched, and I am now 3 days into fermentation. Can I boil a tablet in a pint or so of water, cool, and then add to wort when I rack to the secondary? Thank you.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No, I wouldn't do that. It wouldn't be very effective in clearing your beer.Don't worry, your beer will still be just fine. It may end up a little cloudy (chill haze) is all.
1/26/2008 -- I live about an hour (if traffic is good) from the address on your website. Do you have an actual store or is everything here based solely online?

10/17/2006 -- How do I order the 1lb. package of Irish Moss for $12.00 as you state in the description? When I mark a quantity of 8, I get a price of $14.00 on the shopping cart. In the overall scheme of things $2.00 alone isn't much but ultimately the accumulation of several $2.00s will allow the purchase of something else.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: You are right. There was an error in the way it was calculated. It has now been corrected, and you can order 8 for $12.00 now.
10/10/2006 -- We currently use the tablets but are wondering if the loose form is more cost effective. Aproximately how many gallons,(or 5 gallon batches) will one pound of Irish Moss treat?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, the loose form is more cost effective. It only takes about 1/2 teaspoon to treat 5 gallons. Not sure how many teaspons in a pound. Certainly a LOT!
9/29/2006 -- I'm using a Beer Machine powdered mix to make 2.5 gallons. Just add the mix and the yeast to water. Let it ferment in a 2.5 gallon plastic keg, then put it in the fridge to finish the process. Would it be advantageous to put a little Irish Moss in it to help clarify the beer? Would it help give more creamier head? Any disadvantages? . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Sorry, we don't comment on products that we don't sell, other that to say we are NOT impressed with it.Onn the irish moss issue, it probably woulds not help, since you don't boil it anyway.
12/27/2005 -- Is the Irish moss powdered?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: More like flakes, actually. As the flakes break up, it becomes more granular.
7/17/2005 -- Fairly new beer brewer....Just started adding Irish Moss during last 15 min of boil. I notice that with all the precipitated proteins and hop residue that I have a LOT of 'green scum' in the bottom of my brewpot. Currently, I'm only single stage fermenting, not racking to a secondary. I've been filtering this scum (or is it trub?) . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: I'll bet it IS time consuming. Yes, just allow all that stuff to go into your primary fermenter. All that junk will settle out, and you leave it behind when you transfer. There is no harm in that. Start using a secondary fermenter, like a glass carboy, and you will end up with a better beer.
3/3/2005 -- what is the best clarifier you have and what is the difference between all of them.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: You don't say whether this is for wine, beer, mead etc. Many different clarifiers are used for different reasons.I will assume you are referring to wine, here is a link with some information:http://home.att.net/~lumeisenman/chapt14.htmlLet's not forget racking, cold stabilization and filtration methods as well! Too much to this subject . . .
