Subject: chill haze and yeast question
Date: 1990-04-20 16:36:13 GMT

FlorianB referred to a particular yeast as "throwing a bodacious chill
haze." I've had chill haze problems too, but always figured it was
caused by inadequate hot break (excess protein in the wort) or a
hop with lots of tannin. Can choice of yeast affect chill haze, and if
so, which yeasts are best at minimizing haze?? I've been attacking
the problem with Irish Moss, with fair to mixed results. Anyone out
there tried this Polyclar stuff? I'm sort of hesitant to mix plastic into
my brew, even if it does stay behind with the sludge, but I do like a
nice clear lager.
