  • Product description

    Fining Adjunct is a ready for use product that is used to break protein and some yeast out of freshly fermented beer.

    This product is an a auxiliary fining for use in conjunction with isinglass finings. The product removes the protein that causes haze in beer, improves filterability for bright beers, reduces conditioning time and leads to polished beers. Suitable for vegan-only beers. Auxiliary finings work with isinglass in cask conditioned beers.

    With many beers, the best clarity is achieved by using an isinglass finings product in combination with an auxiliary. Auxiliary finings can be added at one of several points: Into the fermentation vessel; into the beer main feeding the rack-ing heads or into the cask before filled.

    Using the product

    Most beers will require an addition of auxiliary finings at a rate between 100ml per hl to 500ml per hl. It is important to note that if auxiliary finings are being used with isinglass, it should be added first before the isinglass.

    Where to add auxiliary finings

    Auxiliary finings can be added at one of several points:

    Into the fermentation vessel

    The auxiliary can be added to the fermentation vessel either through the CIP spray ball at the top of the tank or pumped through the outlet valve of the bottom of the tank. The addition should be made at the end of fermentation, just as the vessel goes onto chill. The residue fermentation and convection currents on cooling are sufficient to mix the product.

    Into the beer main feeding the racking heads

    This method can be combined with proportional metering to ensure the correct rate of addition. The auxiliary is added first followed by the isinglass finings if required.

    Into the cask before it is filled

    The appropriate quantity of auxiliary is put into the cask before filling. If the filling rate is fast and turbulent, isinglass can then be added towards the end of the fill or after.

    Into cask when in pub cellar

    Auxiliary finings can also be added to cask beer in the pub cellar of a beer haze persist, although our Cellabrite product is better formulated for this work.

    Using auxiliary finings with isinglass

    When using auxiliary finings with isinglass, it is important to add it before the isinglass . Otherwise they will not clarify the beer properly. This is because the two products carry opposite charge and will react with each other rather than the hazes on the beer that they are designed to clear.
