Ladies and gentlemen,

I have a light beer that I have made. It's basicly a 2-row and halletau SMaSH although this one has honey and lemon peel in it too. I use nottingham yeast.

I would like to throw some gelatin in it and age it for 1-2 weeks in a cold fridge (high 30's) in order to get it as clear as I can. My fear is that I will have a hard time conditioning it as I do not keg at all.

Am I crazy? Any other thoughts?

Go Red Sox,

Why do you have to condition it in a keg? Nothing wrong with a carboy.

i have related (or maybe not) question, can you use gelatin at bottling?
actually when i think about it its a stupid question, i guess i could but its probably better to use it before bottling
