^^ the Merry Xmas at the end made me laugh.

From what I understand you only lose flavour/aroma if you had too much. 1/2 tsp in 5 gallons seems to be the conservative dose recommended by most

If you need to wait more that 48 hours for it to clear with a cold crash, you're doing it wrong.

I've tried gelatin and didn't like how it stripped the aroma. I got a better beer without it. Definitely makes sense to use on non-hoppy beers, but I'll never use it again on an APA/IPA.

Drinking: a farmhouse with ECY08 & brett blend
Fermenting: sour cherry mead, imperial chocolate stout and its not-so-small beer second runnings, our bruin & a few other sours
Aging: a bunch of belgian and soured stuff, and acerglyn.
Up next: harvest ale with homegrown hops

That beer needs a couple weeks of cold crashing
