Product description

Young's Protafloc Tablets, Pack Of 10 Tablets

These are tabletted carrageenan which is added to the wort to help with protein removal as the wort cools.
 
The active ingredient is a polysaccharide (carrageenan) which is derived from seaweed. Carrageenan in solution is
negatively charged and it is these charged particles which interact with proteins in the wort.
 
Protafloc tablets should be added ten minutes prior to the end of the boil. This is the length of time required to dissolve and disperse the carrageenan into the wort. Don't add the tablets earlier in the boil, or degradation of the polymer can occur.
 
Advantages:
    Natural product which removes substantial quantities of haze forming material without affecting head retention
    Produces brighter worts, reducing the amount of finings required later
    Increases the rate of fermentation and attenuation
    Increases filter runs
    Prolongs shelf life in small pack beers
    Reduces process time
    Is a processing aid not an additive so doesn’t require label declaration
    Reduced tank losses
    5-10% more efficient than competitive products
    Tabletted for easy use
