Gelatin Fining While Force Carbing

Postby clarkfamilyhb on Fri Oct 04, 2013 7:43 pm

Hey all,
The title of this post says it all, anything wrong with using gelatin and force carbing at the same time. I have heard a couple different theories on the interwebs, so I figured I would check here to see if anyone could provide feedback.
Thanks,
Ian

I've done it plenty of times with success. I prefer to do it in primary while child-crashing, but in kegs while carbonating works fine.

I usually do it in the kegs while carb'ing. However, I do cold crash my fermenter first, to force the haze-proteins into action, then add the gelatin to the keg after transfer from the fermenter. Purge with CO2, swirl gently, and carb it up.

I don't see a problem with that, but that is not the way I do it. We have many discussions about using gelatin in the archives here. Just do a search for gelatin and you should find all the info you need.
