8 gallon brew pot, malt extract & specialty grains, 1/2 whirlfloc tablet for last 5 mins of boil, bottling
I've been getting good results with the new wort chiller I got for xmas (thanks babe), drops temp to 75 in 15 to 40 mins depending on air temp, and nice clear wort sitting on top of the cold break. I decided to try whirlpool for my first time, after the temp got to 75 last week, so removed the IC & stirred it up real good, which got all the cold break mixed in with my nice clear wort. Waited 15 mins, it was still cloudy, but I got impatient, partially due to my pot sitting in 80 degree NM sun, so opened the valve & drained into the fermenter. It drained all the break, there was hardly anything left in the pot. It fermented fine at 72 degrees, yesterday I transferred to secondary. But it's pretty cloudy. Is there anything I can do to help clear things up prior to bottling. I was thinking after the ferment is over, use isinglass. Or would chilling the carboy in an ice bath for a few days do anything (you know, ice bath, cold break...). Any idears would be appreciated.
