Finings in TC?

Postby WalesAles » Tue Jul 04, 2017 9:48 pm

Hello All,
I know I could Google this question, but I want real answers off real people. (Yes, I`m on my 4th pint of TC, how can you tell)? Nights tomorrow.
My Rasp and Cran TC`s always come out super clear after a week in the bottle.
There is always a tiny sediment but it creeps out on pouring. I end up with 5mm in the bottle and 5mm less in the glass.
Even if I leave the bottles for a month, 2 months, I still get the wispy tendrils of sediment creeping to the glass.
So, will finings work in a TC?

If you want it bottle conditioned for a nice bit of fizz, you're always going to get a bit of dead yeast at the bottom of the bottle. If you use finings you could easily kill the carbonation

Cheers for that.
I can live without Finings.
Why doesn`t Finings kill the carbonation in Beer?

Not much commercial beer is bottle conditioned these days. Try a Belgian Daas Blond, that'll have a nice yeast deposit.
