I brewed today and forgot to put kettle fining in. When it's done fermenting I'm going to crash cool it at around 30 degrees. Would it be best to use some gelatin at this point? I know that my beer will be ok in the long run, I just want to know what my options are?

Thanks

NO worries on the finings. I would add gelatin a few days before cold crashing and you should have a nice clear beer. Also be sure to give it plenty of time in the primary to let everything drop out.

+1 to gelatin, but I probably wouldn't do anything especially if it's a beer of 10 srm or more.

I'm with half pint especially if its a dark beer. If you haven't tried not using it check it out. I think crashing does a great jobs. That and proper conditioning.

Here is a list of options:

I almost always forget to add kettle finnings, never made much difference in the finished product.
