Just to note.. I read everyone uses a gelitan and water mix to clear beer. In an attempt to not add any extra water to my beer I have been useing a mixture of my beer and gelitan and follow the same process. It has worked great for me with no off flavors or watering down of my beer. Just an option.

Well I don't have a pic to post yet but this worked very well for me. Beer is MUCH clearer.
