Focusing on the hop schedule, I forgot to add a Whirlfloc tablet to the boil. It is an APA. I know I have clarifying options in the secondary, like gelatin or isinglass, but I haven't used them before. Any input on secondary clarifiers would be appreciated.

I didn't use irish moss or whirlfloc in my apa and it turned out clear.

I did a 3 week primary and crash cooled for 3 days at 38.

Wait four weeks and judge it then. Most likely, you won't need any additional clarification.
