Description

A clarifier that has received attention on The Brewing Network and is used by several of our commercial brewer friends. While beers cloud for different reasons and there is not one silver bullet to clear all beers, Biofine has proven effective in most situations. It is an easy way to help ensure clarity without having to filter.

Biofine strips out all remaining yeast in 24-48 hours! Speeds up the aging and clarify process by 2-3 weeks! You'll find a layer of darker yeast that settles on top of your yeast bed in your fermenter. This layer is thicker than normal and acts as a blanket. This settling process avoids your yeast from being disturbed as you move your carboy. Biofine brings out maltiness and accentuates esters produced by yeast.

Biofine Clear is a purified colloidal solution of silicic acid (SiO2) in water that has been specially formulated for the rapid sedimentation of yeast and other haze forming particles in beer. (Vegan friendly - no animal products) Shelf life is 24 months from date of manufacture, unopened.

Dosage Rates: 1/4 Tbsp (3 ml or 1/10oz) to as much as 2 Tbsp (31 ml or 1 fluid oz.) per 5 gallon batch of beer.

Store in cool, dry conditions above 41 degrees F and do not allow the product to freeze.

Some beer styles don't react with certain dose rates. You may have to add more to have an effect. We recommend starting small and increasing your dosage rates once per day until clarification takes place.

Very effective clarifier
Marc B on Feb 26, 2018
This is an effective clarifier for my beers and is easy to use. I find I need to use doses on the higher end of the recomendations. I think that you should sell this product in larger bottles

Made a batch of beer and it was recommended by a local bewer.

I want to try using a clarifying agent, but I have friends who are vegan. I want to try an agent they can use.

I'll be using this every time from now on.
This product works well when used during the transfer from primary to secondary/bright tank as it is easier to get it thoroughly mixed in during transfer. I doubt that there would be sufficient yeast left after clarification for bottle conditioning so plan on kegging.

Biofine works well
Biofine combined with a cold crash produced a very clear ale. Used about 27 ml in a 4 1/2 gallon batch over about 3 days. I recommend biofine for helping to create a very clear beer.

Works perfectly
Expensive for the amount you get but it works great. This is the lazy way which is why I spend the $3

third time was the charm... (be patient)
instructions on the back had me frustrated right out the gate...
something like use 3mL to 35mL on a 5gal batch.... (start with 5mL and keep adding until clear) which drove me insane considering how precise I like being during my brew process. After adding 5mL each day (24 hour intervals cold crashing).. finally on day 3 or 4 (20mL later) it started to clear the way I wanted it to. Its nice to just use a syringe and add the 5mLs but I hated opening my fermenter each day. Now that I know 20mL seems to be the magic number... I'll be a little happier moving forward .. but about day 2 I was really close to saying "screw it" and going back to 1/2 tsp gelatin (which has worked great for me in the past).

In summary... do a little research on how much to add (avoid the 4 day headache I went through the first time). Its really easy to add once you find that magic number but I wouldn't say it cleared any better then my fining with gelatin. I'll probably end up sticking with gelatin for most of my batches - cheaper, easier to store, better shelf life...

Probably would have given it 4 stars if the instructions were a little better.

Cheers

Great Prodcut
This is one of the best products for finish beer finning. Works well, easy to use. Just wish I could get it in larger quantity. Bulk would make it even better.

Great clarifier
I've used this in a few kegs of beer now and will vouch for it.

It dropped a hoppy German Pils to crystal clarity in a matter of days. (Great when using quick-lager method!) It also took a heavily hopped red ale to brilliantly clear in the same amount of time.

Both beers were hop forward and retained a fresh, late hop flavor profile. I was concerned that it would strip the hops from my beer, but it did more to focus the flavor profile.

In the past, I have used ClarityFerm and standard gelatin and found this to be superior to each. Similar to gelatin in terms of performance, with less fuss.

Awesome and super easy
Makes clarifying so simple. Seems to be better than my typical gelatine addition.

Efficent and unexpensive
I bought this a few months ago, never used it before, clarity of my beers has improved significantly. easy to use, fast to act and cheap. thumbs up!

Amazing
I needed to quickly clear a Kolsch that I had made. Just 1 oz in a 5 gallon Corne keg gave me sparkling clear beer
