Default Gelatin Mistake? I may have beer flavored jello

I decided to try gelatin for the first time. I heated it up (not boil) and then added it to the secondary. It was like jello when I put it in. Now I notice jello floating in my German Ale. Is this normal? If not, then I will figure out a way to keg the beer and not take in the jello. I wonder if it will taste good.

How long ago did you add this, it takes a few days to settle to the bottom I believe...

Your taste should be fine. I've never seen gelatin do that. What brand did you use?

Store brand (Meiers) knox blocks. I may have gotten it too hot. My thermometer was in the garage. As long as it attracts stuff, I don't care. It looks kind of cool.

Wait a while and see what happens. I have read to wait 3 days before bottling. Is it just a layer on top? Or did it all 5 gallons solidify?
