Flocculation

Joining together of particles in suspension.

Flocculation

Note 1: In contrast to aggregation, agglomeration is a reversible process. Note 2: The definition proposed here is recommended for distinguishing agglomeration from aggregation. Note 3: Quotation from ref. }} Flocculation, in the field of chemistry, is a process wherein colloids come out of suspension in the form of floc or flake; either spontaneo...

Flocculation

Flocculation refers to a yeast strains tendency to clump together and drop out or fall out of suspension to the bottom of the fermenter or holding vessel. As yeast flocculates, the beer begins to clarify. Some yeast strains tend to have high flocculation such as Wyeast Scottish #1728, while other strains like Wyeast American Wheat #1010 or very low...

Flocculation

The change which takes place when the dispersed phase of a colloid forms a series of discrete particles which are capable of settling out from the DISPERSION medium. In geological processes, flocculation is almost inevitably a result of a colloidal solution mixing with a solution containing electrolytes, e.g., sea water.

flocculation

The tendency of yeast to clump together and settle out as fermentation draws to a close. Yeast which have low flocculation will tend to remain in suspension longer; they will ferment the beer more fully, but may tend to cause haze in the finished beer unless finings or filtration are used. Yeast which have high flocculation will tend to settle ou...

Flocculation

The term has one meaning for brewers and another for winemakers. For brewers, it refers to the process of yeast clumping together and falling to the bottom when fermentation is complete. A yeast known to possess high flocculation tendencies will have a very high percentage of yeast cells that clump together and fall to the bottom, thereby leaving t...
