KICK Carrageenan™ Micro-T is a recently developed fining tablet designed to improve flocculation and clarity in the boil kettle. KICK is more powerful than generic Irish Moss and correctly calibrated so that each tablet treats 5 gallons of wort. Developed by Gusmer Enterprises, multiple sources of highly purified Kappa Carrageenan were tested over a period of two years to ultimately find the souce and quality grade that was the most effective at binding haze-forming proteins and other small particles in beer wort.
One tablet treats 5 gallons so unlike Whirlfloc you are not overdosing. For best results, add 5 minutes prior to the end of the boil. Quickly dissolves.
The active ingreident, Kappa Carrageenan, is a high molecular weight polysaccharide derived from red seaweed.
