Clarification

Postby Akeuw » Sun Mar 16, 2014 8:15 pm

I don't have any room left in my fridge.

How do you suppose that I might clarify my beverage without using one? Would a cooler work?

Refrigeration isn't required for clarification, it just speeds it up a lot.

There are also additives that you can purchase that work well at room temperature. Bentonite and sparkolloid are two that come to mind that clarify quickly.

Would putting the bottles in the freezer for a little while work?

If the alcohol content is high enough and the freezer isn't set too low (sub zero) then they can go into the freezer and they will clarify quickly without freezing (when I was in Alaska I used to put them outside when it was in the 20's). But if it is a low alcohol brew the bottle could freeze, split, and make a huge mess.

Just an update, after 2-3 weeks it seemed to clarify on its own. Putting it in the freezer worked well too.
