I broke with tradition and had a few beers while I was brewing a Californian Common breer consequense I forgot to add the Irish moss in the boil .

Its in the fermanter now , will it be all right or should I rack it after a couple of day s

Is there anything I can do can I add the Irish moss now ?

Thanks Chiller I never fogot em before I was panicking so long as it tastes ok I dont mind if its cloudy its only a quaffing beer

Pumpy - sometimes I am convinced Irish Moss really helps and other times I am not so sure. The bottom line is, when you forget it, do your normal routine and try to minimise the crap that gets in to the fermenter - even if it means stopping a bit shorter in volume than usual.
I forgot the moss in my last brew and it's dropped out bright as a penny. A bright penny.
Thanks Sosman Thanks Kai

Heh, I forget to add irish moss more often than I remember to add it :)
I didn't use it for a while and still had brews drop nice and clear, even some that I didnt want to clear (wheats).
Your right Murray & thehipone ,Just an update on the Californian Common racked it the otherday and it is looking clear nice and hoppy all that worry all grain brewing is forgivng .
