I know about polyclar... but how should one use agar or bentonite?
I have agar-agar flakes (from the chineese food isle... eden foods)
for making yeast culture media. How would i fine with agar?
Boil it and pitch the liquid? How much should i use.

And... what the heck is Bentonite? Around denver, co there is a lot
of talk about a clay called bentonite. It appears that houses built
on bentonite have a tendency to shift and sink into the earth!
How might a clay product be used in beer !?!?
