Generally I add gelatin when racking to the secondary but maybe I'll skip the secondary this time and just dump it straight into the keg chill it then add gelatin the next day and see what happens......
Or better yet, keep it in the primary all the way through fermentation, crash cool it, geletanize, and let it rest for another 12-36 hours. THEN rack to the keg.
I have seen too many kegs stuck by a ball of gelatin lodged into the dip tube from the pressure.
Following the above, and other similar techniques also facilitates locking the rub down in the primary therefore lessening the risk of x-ferring that so, there less to wait for settling once in the keg.
