I've never added geletin to my beers to clear them, heck half the time I forget moss during brewing, but my beer is uber clear.

I used to fret about all this - whirlfloc, Irish Moss, Whirlpooling, etc. Now I do as Revvy says and leave it in the primary for at least three weeks, bottle (well, keg now), and put it in the fridge for at least a week before I drink it. Crystal clear every single time.

The only filtering I do from the brewpot to the fermenter is through a paint strainer bag. Other than that, the trub goes in the fermenter and the yeast and gravity takes care of it.
