Default Gelatin Finnings necessary?

i brewed a red ale about a week and a half ago, i transferred the beer into the secondary. i recipe i was using for a guideline with the red ale, called for using gelatin finnings along with irish moss. i have no gelatin to add to the beer. is this going to create a problem with the way that beer ends up drastically? or will the beer just have a chill haze problem when finally bottled? because it looks pretty good the way it is right now? any experience with not using gelatin and getting away with it?

keep the glass full !

I've used finings, but rarely do anything beyond letting the ale settle.

I am of this school of thought as well. It expedites the process of clearing, but is not necessary in many of the recipes I have.

Brew what you like. Do this, and you will find your inner brewer.
