KICK Carrageenan ® Kettle Finings

KICK Carrageenan kettle finings are an effective way to improve flocculation and clarity in the kettle and throughout the rest of the brewing process. The active ingredient in KICK Carrageenan is kappa carrageenan, a high molecular weight polysaccharide derived from red seaweed. When added near the end of the boil, kappa carrageenan binds to haze-forming proteins and other small particles and flocculates rapidly, resulting in improved wort and beer clarity.

KICK Carrageenan G (Granular) KICK Carrageenan G is composed of 100% granular carrageenan. It is produced at a larger particle size to encourage easier handling and dosing. Add KICK Carrageenan G 20 minutes prior to the end of boil to fully activate the kappa carrageenan – no hydration necessary. Water Viscosity @ 1.5% – 400-800 cps Color – Cream to Light Tan Particle Size – 90% through 10 Mesh Moisture – Less than 12% KICK Carrageenan T (Tablets) KICK Carrageenan tablets are composed of highly refined kappa carrageenan. The tablet format provides a convenient dosing method that encourages rapid delivery of the active ingredient to the kettle. KICK Carageenan tablets are manufactured using high quality materials, resulting in a product that is odorless and non-dusting. Add KICK Carrageenan tablets 5 minutes prior to the end of boil. Water Viscosity @ 5% – 10-30 cps Color – White Tablet Weight – KICK T 28-31g Moisture – Less than 5%
