Should I use gelatin when I transfer to secondary or does it effect the flavor. I don't care to much about haze, but I don't want red mud either.

don't worry about off-flavors with gelatin, think about plain Jello.... they don't make it.

How long are you aging in fermenter and/or aging vessel(2ndary)?

It will help clear it and that’s about it. if you are going to bottle condition it I would advice against it. I believe it will take longer to carb up if you do. If not, go for it. There are a few threads about using gelatin, you should be able to get some with a quick search.

So don't use gelatin if I am bottling?
