Andrew Fratianni. Gusmer Enterprises, Inc., Mountainside, NJ, U.S.A.

Consumers have long placed a great importance on brilliantly clear beer as a sign of quality. In recent years, craft brewers have produced hazy beers that have gone on to achieve a high level of acceptance in the market. However, any beer with any amount of haze may no longer be acceptable for many craft beer consumers. A review of the most common finings and their application in the brewery will help the brewer to produce a consistent product no matter the level of haze specified.
