    Gelatin fining

    Hi All- My first post, but I've been a lurker for a few months. I'm on my 5th batch (What Hoppened?-a verry hoppy IPA) and would lke to clarify it in the secondary. The SG is down to 1014 from 1060 (target of 1010-1012). I'm thinking about moving it to the secondary and adding gelatin to get it...
