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.
