So here is the idea.
I like making British beer styles and for the most part I am not to particular on perfect clarity. However, as I understand it much of the British real ale is fined with isinglass or gelatin and I am a vegetarian. So I was cleaning out my pantry and I came across a little packet of agar agar flakes. These are the raw version of agar that is used in plating yeast etc. It is widely used in vegan cooking to provide thickening and body as gelatin or eggs might be used in non-vegan cooking. On the package the product is described as a vegetarian gelatin.
So I am thinking I could mix it up, more or less to the levels/amounts used for gelatin (adjusted for the ratio of gelatin to agar suggested, whatever that is) in beer to clarify.
thoughts? Am I crazy? anyone ever tried it?
