Default Question on isinglas

When is the best time to add isinglas before bottling, or is it even wise? I've read some stuff on the site but it's not too clear.

I am thinking that I could either add it too the primary once fermenting is done, or to the bottling bucket...

Cheers!

+1 for using it in your secondary.

OK - secondary confirmed.

But - might this cause too much yeast to settle out, so that there was not enough remaining for carbonation - or am I worrying too much.

No. There is always yeast in unfiltered beer. They just take longer to do the job. Thus the three weeks in the bottle at fermentation temps.
