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.
