When I'm getting ready to keg my beer, I cold-crash the primary for a couple days down to ~35, add gelatin, continue cold crashing another day or two, and then transfer to the keg. Clear beer goes in the keg, and all of the trub/flocculated yeast/gelatin is left in the primary. Works great every time. When the keg kicks there is very little mess to clean up at the bottom.

As with most things in homebrewing, there are many methods to achieve the same end result. Find what works best for you.

First time doing honey lager ("Rocky Raccoon's" it says here) So, If I add .25 oz of knox unflavored Gelatin to the boll at last 10 minutes, will that do anything to help clear it later
?
I just realized I have no Whirlfloc in the house.

Mark300y94 you need to add the gelatin after fermentation is done and you have cooled to 50*F or lower. You can add it to the fermenter or keg.

It's Whirlfloc or Irish Moss you add the last 10 minutes, Gelatin is added after fermentation, cold crash, add Gelatin, wait 24/48 hrs and rack or keg.
