Why are you not adding the warm gelatin to the cold beer before transfer? I would think you'd want to transfer clear beer to the other vessel rather than clearing the beer in the other vessel.
I'm basically clearing it twice. I'm cold-crashing it now, then racking the (mostly) clear beer into a keg and fining it there to get the rest to drop out.
Honestly, I probably don't really need to fine it -just crashing and racking once or twice should be sufficient. The issue is that this is a super flocculant yeast, but I let too much hop trub through to the fermenter. The flocs are sticking to the hop trub and are kicking up very easily, instead of packing into a tight cake like it usually does. I just figure that I might as well use some gelatin, since I'm taking the extra step to clear it anyways.
I've never used gelatin before, so can't help there. I always add whirfloc at 5 min left in the boil, and still haven't had a beer that didn't clear after awhile in the keg. Just mentioning a different approach in case it appeals to you for future brews.
Same here, usually. This just seems to be a problem beer.
Are you planning on using a beer gun or counter pressure filler after the beer is carbonated in the keg to fill your bottles?
Going to try the "racking cane with stopper stuffed in a picnic tap" method. Thanks for the gelatin tips
