Gelatin will work fine in warm beer. It works better with chilling as that will flocculate the remaining yeast and produce chill haze which the gelatin can then remove. The result will be clearer...

The bittering hops go in when you are 60 minutes from flameout. Do not add bittering hops at the beginning of what could be a 2-2.5hr boil, they develope off flavours you don't want.

Mine too, I have a keg sitting on the compressor hump. I did have to make the collar a little taller to accommodate it. Malkore will the 8cf freezer fit 5 kegs if your CO2 tank(s) is outside?
