Default Bottle conditioning: A little geletin?

When I CO2 carbed in the keg I would add geletin to the primary, rack to the keg, then dry hop in the keg. The geletin helped get the yeast out of the way of the hop oils. I have since moved to Europe and don't have CO2 anymore, so I bottle carbonate. I was thinking since there is always way too much yeast in the bottle, what if I added like 1/4 of the geletin I normally would before racking? Do you think that would serve to remove *a bit* of the yeast, giving me a bit more hop aroma and less sediment in the bottle? Does anyone do this?

I haven't done that but from what I've heard it'll work just fine.

They don't have co2 in Europe? Or is it expensive and hard to find?

Carbonation will take slightly longer. Also take into account what kind of sugar you are using after moving to EU.

It takes very little yeast to bottle condition. The level of carbonation is not tied to the number of yeast, it is tied to the amount of priming sugar.

It is expected that there will not be a lot of yeast in the bottle, that's one reason why it can take 3 weeks or more to properly bottle condition.

So then it's probably a good idea to put 0.1g of geletin in my 5 gallon batch?

I would go with something closer to 1.8g. I don't know if 0.1g will have any effect.
