Bill Cosby’s Braggot?

Well, the saga of the Earl Grey Cinnamon Braggot continues. Since I had to pitch this on a yeast cake from the Vulcan Warrior due to poor Nottingham yeast (don’t get me started on that, I am done with Notty for now), the braggot is pretty cloudy. So I figured I would take a note from Bill Cosby and toss some Jello at it. Well, not really Jello, but gelatin, Knox to be specific. Here is what I did.

Mixed one tablespoon gelatin per five gallon batch with 1 cup of water per tablespoon hot tap water in a measing cup. Stired it up and let it sit for 20-30 minutes. I heated the mix on the stove until it looks like was going to start boiling then killed the heat. I cooled the mix in an ice bath, then added it into my tertiary, then racked my braggot onto that. The pre gelatin looks clearer than the post gelatin because I was sloppy with the racking. I figured the gelatin will clear up my sloppy racking. Off to the basement for an ice cold water bath for a few days at least.
