I'm going to read the above thread.. but still.. a question.

I'm going to be dry hopping in my secondary on my next batch.. can I add the gelatin at the same time? or should I give it a few days with just the hops and then add the gelatin?

I have the ability to cold crash in a fridge that a carboy will fit into.

I also use Irish moss, but have never gotten that really clear beer that looks like something you would buy off a shelf (if that makes sense) I really want to have a really clear, professional looking IPA

I've been reading on this, but don't fully understand it yet.

So I used gelatin for the first time on my most recent brew.. it looks fantastically clear when I bottled! But I have a concern.. due to life getting in the way.. it sat in the fridge with the gelatin for a week.. It should still have enough yeast to carb right? it's a 6.6% IPA. I know you only need to do this for a few days, but I should be fine right?

Yes, there will be plenty of yeast to carbonate your beer after using gelatin.

My beer is cold crashed, keg is cold. I wanna do a quick 30psi shake carb to give it a head start for a comp this weekend. Should I add the gelatin to the keg after I shake or before?

Add the gelatin to a bowl of cold water microwave for 30 seconds at a time, stir keep doing that until it is clear. Add to keg, pressurize, bleed o2, crank the co2 up and shake. Leave it for a few days before you pull your first pint or two until it runs clear

So I know this is an old thread but thought I would try to ask a question. I have a raspberry ale in the secondary right now (see the recipe Requiem Raspberry). I was wondering if there is an issue with using gelatin when there is still fruit in the secondary? Will it still clear out?
