When using Irish moss, are there any other steps to take to make your beer clear?

Crash cooling, finings, gelatin and filtering are all options.

In the boil:

1. Irish Moss
2. Finings

In the secondary:

1. Crash cooling
2. Gelatin
3. Polyclar
4. Time

Pre- or At-bottling time: Gelatin (although I do not recommend it as it can be inadvertently drunk with your brew...YECH!!!))

Don't forget a rapid cold break. I made an immersion chiller out of 33' of copper tubing that gets my wort (full boils) down to 70F in 8-9 minutes.
