I racked a blonde ale to a secondary glass carboy on Wednesday after a week in a primary. Is it too late to add gelatin? In case it matters...
OG 1.040 gravity at racking time 1.004.
I add mine after transferring to secondary and let it sit for 3 days or so. You're FINE.

Thanks smoking hole. I will probably have to let it sit until next weekend when I can bottle. Is a week or so too long? Sorry, I have never used gelatin but I do want to try to clear it.
Never too late to add gelatin. A lot of people add it to the keg.
You can leave it a week no problem. I just dropped some in my saison a few hours ago and I'm headed to myrtle beach for a week.
Thanks guys, have fun in Myrtle smokinghole.
I wouldn't bother unless you're going to chill it below serving temp before adding it. Otherwise, add away. I sometimes add it when I counterpressure bottle.
Ive never used gelatin so Im curious as to why one would add it and what it would do for my brew?
It's used as a fining agent to clear the beer. Primarily an aesthetic thing.
