To jump on this thread, asking for some clarification- The gelatin usually, from what I have read, does its work in 24 hours in a chilled beer. So if it is at room temp, it should take a few days? I myself am trying to figure this out, as I am planning on bottling this Saturday, but won't be able to do anything to the beer before Friday. I may get a large tub or trash can and make an ice, water and salt bath, put the carboy in there, add the gelatin and then bottle up the next day. Any problems doing it this way?
