Ok I just check my keg and noticed its half empty.. I dropped another brew just now and on march 7-8 I need it done. Need suggestions on how to clear it fast besides cold crashing.

Do you mean instead of or in addition to cold crashing?

Either way, I would use some gelatin maybe two or three days before you go to keg it. Crashing will make it work better if you can do it.

Right, it's quite simple. It doesn't take much either. Your LHBS probably carries it. I get mine from Austin Homebrew Supply. I boil a little water, let it cool down to around 140F, mix in the gelatin (1/2 teaspoon), let it sit ten minutes, then sprinkle it in. Simple and it works great.

See post #6 on this thread for fairly fail proof instructions. Works great for me every time.
