From what I read it seems that boiling the water first. Let it cool to about 140F and then add. Let it bloom for awhile and then add to beer/wort.

hey, i'm kinda new to all this, but i have a quick question: do you need to cold crash when using gelatin? i don't have the equipment to do that properly, so my plan would be to rack the beer at room temp and then add gelatin to help clear the beer. would that work? i'm making a strawberry beer and i want to rack to a third fermenter after the beer was in the 2nd with the berries. thanks!

Yes, it will still work. Being colder just makes it work faster.
