Reader Tip: 1 lb Bag Whirlfloc Tablets

Thanks to HBF Reader Tom for this tip!  [8 Ways to Connect with HBF]

Whirlfloc Tablets 1 lb.

1 lb bag of whirlfloc tablets. About: “Whirlfloc tablets are an enhanced blend of Irish moss and purified carrageenan that aids in the coagulation and settling of haze-producing proteins and beta glucans. Use one tablet per 5 gallon batch and add it with 5 minutes remaining in the boil. Yes, 5 minutes is correct. According to the manufacturer, if Whirl floc is in the boil for any longer than 10 minutes, the active ingredients become denatured and therefore will not do their job.”

Hands On: More Beer’s Plate Filtering Setup

More Beer’s Beer and Wine Plate Filter Kit in action

First… Why would you want to filter your beer?

  1. You want to drink your beer soon.  During conditioning, a lot of what we’re doing is waiting for stuff to fall out of suspension.  Filtering hastens that process.
  2. You want to transport your kegged beer.  Transporting your beer stirs up anything that’s in the bottom of the keg.  Filtering means you don’t need to worry about stirring a bunch of stuff up.
  3. Clarity.  You’re interested in having great clarity for a particular style of beer.
  4. You have a problem with your beer.  Filtering down to the sterile filter level may remove off flavors.  That’s a maybe.

Bouncer Inline Beer Filter for Home Brewing – Removes Sediment Without Aeration
Keep the Dregs Out.  You can also use the Bouncer as a mini-Randall.

More About the Bouncer

From the item description…

Brew better-tasting and clearer beer, in less time, without waste or additives with BOUNCER inline beer filters. Finally, an affordable and reusable filtration solution for home brewers! Use the Bouncer inline between your fermenter and keg, or between your boil kettle and your fermenter. Removes trub, hops, and particulates without aerating. It’s easy to add to your setup, easy to clean, and easy to use. You’ll get more out of each batch, since you don’t have to avoid the trub layer as carefully. Pays for itself in a few batches!

There are three basic ways to use the Bouncer inline filter:

  • Out of the brew kettle
  • Out of the fermenter
  • Out of your serving tap

To use your bouncer out of the brew kettle, simply connect it to your brew kettle valve with standard tubing, or cut your siphon tube line near the top, and insert the barbs into the tube. Pay attention to the arrow that indicates the flow direction. Make sure you have disassembled the bouncer and dipped it in sanitizer just before you use it. Then open your valve, or pump your siphon. If the flow decreases too much, you can stop the flow, remove the bowl and filter, rinse, sanitize, reinstall, and keep going. On a heavily hopped IPA, or a 10 gallon batch, you might find you need to clear it several times.

To use your Bouncer out of your fermenter, cut your siphon tube near the top, and push the barb ends into the tubes, paying attention to the flow direction arrow. The barb ends fit a standard siphon. Make sure to sanitize right before you use it. You might find a bubble develop in the filter bowl – this isn’t air, it’s carbon dioxide from your beer. Just lift the barbed ends so they are level and the bubble should clear down the tube.

Finally, you can hack a mini Randall out of your bouncer. Try orange peels for a Blonde Ale, cracked coffee beans in a Porter, or cloves in your Pumpkin Ale.

The regular model has a 3/8″ barb, so it directly fits the smaller (3/8″) racking cane hose size.
