Default Doh! I forgot to add finings to my kettle last night

I didn't think about it until the beer was in the fermenter. I had some Irish Moss to add to the boil. Is it possible to add something to the primary or could I move to a secondary in a week and then add something like gelatin or just let it be?

If it isn't clear in four weeks, consider racking and adding finings.

+1, let it be for a while. I didn't use any finings on my first 10 or so batches and they all cleared eventually. If you keg, just reserve the first few pints for yourself (they will be the cloudiest) and then it will clear up nicely.
