Re: [new_distillers] Clearing Wash
- << If you've never used any of the suggested methods then how do you
clear your wash? >>
Just to clear up some things (no pun intended), I never "suggested" the
methods that I described. I only offered them as a piece of "historical"
knowledge. I have no idea how well those methods really work, but by the
amount of old wine making instructions that I have came across, they
must have worked real well for those times. My family members used to
use them, so I guess they were good for something.
For my "brews," I let it sit and allow for it to clear itself. I don't use those "Turbo"
yeasts, as I use regular EC-1118 and K1-V1116 by Lalvin.
I make wine and this is where most of my "brewing" knowledge comes
from. I follow my recipe's (yes Lynne, I do add and subtract from them
when necessary) and make them just like any other type of wine. I have
have used Sparkiloid (spelling?) a few times for real stubborn ones.
Plain and simple -- that is the way I like things.

P.S. I never received the original e-mail asking me this question, so I
apologize for not answering sooner. It seems that Yahoo! and local law
enforcement like to play with my e-mail at times.

Good description of the various finings available - appears you might
need a positive and negative charged fining to be absolutely sure?
