+1 What he said! Gelatin is cheap, and works beyond awesome! That is if you have a place to cold crash. 3 days of gelatin and you will have clear beer, a week and it will be like looking through a window.

I don't want to admit it but sadly 5.2 stabilizer works for me. I've be hitting 83 mash eff for mths now with it, so i thought i would try a batch with out it and hit a 76% eff

Well, I just another of my "high plains Pale ales"(my SVPA clone) without any 5.2 and I also added a protein rest. Rest was at 128* for 20 minutes.
Just with those 2 changes alone, the wort "acted" different.

The boil had a BUNCH of hot break material, I was starting to wonder is it was ever going to subside back into the brew or not. Finally, it did.
Then, as the boil kept on...I could see break material swirling around in my kettle. I had never gotten this before.
I use whirlfloc in my brews, so when I chilled the wort, all of the break went straight to the bottom...which is good.
Now, in my fermentor...I am growing something. Something I can't see yet as the krausen hasn't settled yet. It looks like the trub material all clumped together and is FLOATING rather than sinking.
I have seen pictures like this before, so I am not too concerned.

I 2nd this. Gelatin is the answer to all of your problems. Just add to keg and in just a few days, bye bye haze.
