Alginex is a polysaccharide based auxiliary fining agent which is used in conjunction with isinglass or vegan alternative to produce brilliant clear beer. Alginex consists of strong negatively charged molecules which bind to positive and uncharged particles in beer. This results in the beer containing only particles possessing a negative charge. This renders all the particulate material susceptible to reaction with primary beer finings, (positively charged species), and therefore a more complete reaction is obtained and brighter beer is produced in serving tank, cask or used to reduce load on centrifuge and filtration.
Alginex must first be diluted with water to create a ready for use solution: mix 1 part Alginex with 287 parts water. Most beers will require 100-500 mL of solution per hL - an optimization is recommended.
