Wed Jul 12, 2006 6:27 am

I forgot to add my worafloc to my 10 G batch of AG, IPA. It has been in fermentation for two weeks. What are the effects I can look for or expect from this?
Thanks

Maybe take a little longer to clear. I wouldn't stress over it; many people make fine beer without any kettle finings.

You might be able to clear it with Polyclar or Bentonite after fermentation, or even filter if you are set up for that.

Don't let DannyW fool you... it will probably ruin the whole batch.

Go ahead and send it to me and I will dispose of it... :D

Dont worry about it. It wont change the taste. Danny was right you may just have to wait longer for it to clear.

Fine it with gelatin after fermentation. Works great!
