Gelatin Finings – 56g
Gelatin Finings (2 oz):
Gelatin is a coagulant and fining agent. It reacts with colloidal, haze promoting material in the beer to accelerate the formation of dense and compact trub during secondary fermentation. Whirlfloc binds with the trub and is removed with that material by settling or filtration before the beer is finished. It does not remain in the beer. This saves time, boosts wort recovery, and results in a brighter wort. Improved wort clarity with Whirlfloc T leads to cleaner fermentation and easier filtration afterward.
For 5 gallons, dissolve 1/2 teaspoon to 1/4 cup of boiled water cooled down to 150°F. Add solution to secondary or primary fermenter. Gelatin works best at lower temperatures, while temperatures between 45°F and 55°F will be effective, best results will be seen as low as 32°F to 40°F.
If you are using gelatin to clear beer that will later be bottle conditioned, add some bottle conditioning yeast for better results.
