Description

A heat soluble, commercial quallity extra no. 1 grade, powered Gelaitin.  This is much higher quality Gelatin than you will find in most beer/winemaking shops. It is composed of high molecular weight mass proteins that carry a big positive charge. Prepare by mixing in warm water and then adding during a transfer or pump-over. The solution must be maintained at 95-104F (35-40C) when used. See below for different dosage rates for beer and wine.

For Beer 
Use 1/2 tsp for five gallons of beer. Dissolve gelatin into 1/4-1/2 cup of hot water to dissolve and add to beer. Wait a few days and rack off.

A rough approximate of weight is 1 tsp = 1.2 grams. We highly recommend using a scale to weigh the product for an accurate dose. We do not recommend relying on these rough conversions for accurate dosage rates.

i forgot to use irish moss. i'm making a lager. can this be used when the beer is racked off to the bottling bucket? will it prevent proper bottle conditioning/carbonation?

BEST ANSWER: Hi Steve Miller,
I’ve used the gelatin a number of times. I generally wait until fermentation is complete because I’ve heard that the gelatin is so effective at entrapping floating solids that it can actually sequester so many yeast that it can stop the fermentation process. I’ll admit though that I’ve never seen it halt fermentation because I always wait until fermenting is complete. With that being said, yes it is very good at clarifying the beer. I would give it at least 2-3 days to settle after you add it. And I can tell you from experience that if you boil the gelatin before adding it, it curdles up and is ineffective. I mix it with about one to two cups of 120-130 degree Fahrenheit water until it’s fully dissolved, then add it to the beer while it’s in the bottling container. I like bottling from the carboy because you can really see how much of the proteins have settled to the bottom. Sometimes they stick to the side of the carboy, but if you tap it with a rubber mallet one or or two separate occasions a day before bottling that will help dislodge them so they settle to the bottom. Hope this helps

clarifies but..
First time I used gelatin was for a heavily dry hopped IPA with a lot of debris from the hops floating at the top. Gelatin managed to clarify most of it in combination with reducing temperature, though it seemed to also take out the yeast more than for example Polyclar. When I found out, I had to add more yeast to the bottles and rebottle the whole batch. Next time I will save a bit of yeast from the primary and add it back when bottling.

I transfer beer off yeast into container with gelatin, cold crash for 3-4 days beer comes out pretty clear. Lot of material left in container. After a couple days beer clears. The process took much longer when I didn't use this product.
