Further Reading on Carrageenans and Irish Moss:
Irish moss and formulated carrageenans are sometimes used to enhance the effectiveness of fining (clarifying) beer with isinglass. In this situation the carrageenans are known as “auxiliary finings.” Because the carrageenans have a similar electrical charge to that of the yeast cells they assist in creating the yeast-isinglass matrix and facilitate a more effective sedimentation process.
