I recently made a blonde ale with some leftover ingredients I wanted to use up. I want this beer a clear as possible. I used some irish moss in the boil, and I get a wicked cold break with my IC. I get my wort (full boils) down to 70F in 9 minutes. I've never used gelatin before, so can someone advise me on when, how and how much to use? I don't bother using a secondary, I just leave my beers in primary for 4 weeks then bottle. Thanks for your help.:mug:

as per biermuncher


I use a tablespoon per five gallon batch.

Mix it with hot tap water in a sauce pot, about 1 cup of water per tablespoon.

Stir it up and let it sit for 20-30 minutes to hydrate and bloom.

Put the pot on the stove and heat until it looks like it’s about to start boiling…don’t boil.

Cool slightly (I put my pot in a cold water bath).

Add it (gently) to the secondary (or keg) as you’re racking your beer.
this is what i did, worked great.
