Flocculation

Flocculation is the clumping of smaller molecules into larger, irregularly shaped masses.

Protein molecules clump during the wort boil, especially with a goo d hot break. Yeast cells clump during the sedimentation phase, as the fermentation process ends. This phenomenon assists in the clarification of the beer.
