I normally see a difference after about 24 hours and it looks crystal clear after three days. I've heard that you can get 'beer jello' at the bottom of your keg, but I've always been drinking on the beer as the gelatin is working so it doesn't set in the bottom of the keg like it may if you add the gelatin and not pull some of the sediment from the bottom daily.

This may be an old post but I am finding it very interesting and helpful. I hope this did help the origional poster I am curious as to the Gelatin idea above. while I do have a plate filter I chose not to filter out my Chocolate Cherry Milk Stout. I put it in a secondary and then third letting the residual chocolate fall out but now that it's kegged and carbonated it looks like a Chocolate Milk Shake. I am serving this at a party next weekend and need to clean this up. How much Gelatin do you add for a 5 gallon batch?
