I use Super moss, I have not used Gelatin since I stated with the moss, If i try to rush a beer to the glass I have cloudy beer for about 6-7 pints before its clear, I think you just need to give it more time, you will find flavors will change over time also.
I plan to have a supply of beers at different stages so that I always have beer ready to drink, some in keg maturing and some fermenting.

Agree.. without filtering and or post ferment finings, nothing beats a good couple weeks at 35F. It all compacts down at the bottom of the keg and a short spurt of cloudy beer is all you'll see. By the 3rd pint it will be clear. That's the side benefit of the set and forget carbonation method.

I had at least 6 pints of the beer I tried cold crashing in the keg for a week this past weekend. I have to say its while it's not as clear as I would hope it has cleared much quicker than the last few. I am going to crash it again until this next weekend and see what happens.
