So are you guys really worried about the clarity of your beer or what's the deal? I don't have clarity issues and I don't use whirlfloc or irish moss. I don't need every beer to be clear like a lager either. Enough cold time (a couple weeks) gives me a nice clear beer.
Or is there an actual flavor difference that using whirlfloc aids in improving? This all just seems like paranoia and OCD stuff to me.
I don't worry about the clarity of my beer, but I find a clear beer much more aesthetically pleasing. "You drink with your eyes first". So, I use whirlfloc and usually gelatin or biofine later in the keg. Just my preference.
