8/4/2016 – When using whirlfloc If its one tablet per 5 gallons, is there smaller sizes for one gallon batches?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No, sorry. I suppose you could cut a tablet down if you like.Or use a smaller amount of Irish Moss.

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 at this stage.Don't worry, your beer will still be just fine. It may end up a little cloudy (chill haze) is all.

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.On the irish moss issue, it probably would 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 brew kettle. Currently, I'm only single stage fermenting, not racking to a secondary. I've been filtering this scum (or is it . . .
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, clearer beer.
2/1/2005 – Where can I buy the hops to brew the beer? I live in Plainview, Texas....would love to brew my own. But, I need the ingredients to brew it. will buy your equipment, so....where can I buy the goodies to brew it?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Right here! We have a large selection of hops, yeasts, grains and everything you need in the way of ingredients. Here is a link:A good way to get started is to choose one of our ingredient (recipe) kits. They get you started the right way!
5/14/2004 – Thanks for all the great info. But I have a question as well. What is the best way to make my kegged beer very clear? It is not bad but it still seems like the glass is slightly frosty even though it isn't.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: It sounds like chill haze, which is essentially excess proteins and colloidial matter caused by many factors:1) mashing and sparging techniques, and pH of mash2) recipe composition (adjuncts, etc)3) grain milling techniques (not too fine)4) water used, mineral content5) boil techniques (a good rolling boil is best)6) Use of irish . . .
11/18/2003 – I'm trying to make a Red Ale and wanted to know:1. Do you need to clarify beer like you do wine (with Bentonite)? If so, when and how?2. Do you have to add anymore yeast to ferment the priming suger before bottling?3. If I can't get to bottling for a period of time after fermentation (a week of two) will my beer still be ok?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: 1. No, it is usually not necessary to clarify your beer. It is a good idea to use irish moss in the boil, however. Irish moss helps the proteins etc settle out in your fermenter (prior to bottling).2. No, it is not necessary to add more yeast. There will still be some cells in solution (even if you can't see them). That is enough to produce . . .
