Iodine allergies

Post by sushimimi » Tue Jan 02, 2007 11:57 am


This is my first post, and must say that this is an awesome site! :D

I've just recently gotten into brewing, and so far, we have a couple gallons of mead, and one batch of Vintner's Merlot.

My fiance has a true allergy to iodine though, and I'm suspecting that not all things that probably contain iodine are labeled such. :?

Do you have any suggestions to replace the Chitosan fining for the Merlot? It's a shellfish derivative, and I don't feel comfortable with it.

Also, I read that Irish Moss is actually flaked seaweed, after purchasing some thinking the type of moss growing on stones in the yard. :shock:

Does anyone know of a good reference covering the ingredients of things? Or know of what else to stay away from? He is not a happy camper when sick and itchy. :)
