Irish Moss is widely used by brewers around the world as an all-natural way to produce brilliantly clear beers.
It is also known as Carrageen or by its scientific name, Chondrus Crispus.
Irish Moss is a marine algae found on the Atlantic coasts of Europe and North America and is used to remove excess proteins from beer wort.
Eliminating excess proteins results in clear beers that age better and have better flavor.
Irish Moss is able to coagulate the suspended protein in a liquid and cause it to precipitate out of solution.
It is able to do so because protein has a positive electrical charge and the Irish moss has a negative electrical charge.
The effects of Irish Moss can be enhanced by cooling the wort as quickly as possible to fermentation temperatures.
Use one tsp per 5 gallons for the last 15-20 min of the boil to clarify beer.
