I just started using gelatin, my last IPA was so cloudy I just didn't feel like sharing any of it. It tasted fine, it just looked like a Blue Moon. Since this was a Two Heart clone I was a little disappointed. I had another pale coming and couldn't stand the thought it would turn out as cloudy as the last one, so I gave it the gelatin treatment. I bottled it today. WOW, THIS GELATIN IS GREAT STUFF! The beer is clear, but still has a few particles suspended so I'm confident it will carbonate well, this will be my clearest pale ale yet. I've also been having issues with a chill haze, can't wait to see how this one turns out. Planning to make the Two Heart again and use gelatin to compare the results.
If you're interested, here's what I did. Boiled water ahead of time and let it cool, added 1 packet of Knox gelatin to 1 cup of the cooled water and let it set for 20-30 minutes. I then heated the gelatin carefully in the microwave to about 150 deg. Made sure the gelatin was dissolved and poured it into the primary, 5 days before bottling. No stirring at all, just poured it in and left it go. When I opened the bucket to siphon into the bottling bucket there was a light layer of bubbles in a gelatinous scum, as the bucket emptied that stuck to the sides and I could see the bottom of the primary through 4.5 Gal of beer! I will be using gelatin in all my pale beers in the future.
