I just had to repost my last year's baseball thread posting:
+1 Just toss 'em in. After a few days they'll sink, an added cold crash will facilitate sinking, too.
Which is why I'm always amused by people who feel they have to add weights to a hop bag.
I think baseball is about my 20th or 30th favorite sport, behind hurling, football, hockey, and lacrosse. Before you get to baseball there are some placeholder spots for random Olympic sports like biathlon. I don't mind going to a baseball game, but that's different. Watching on TV is too boring.
On the other hand, golf is my favorite sport to nap to.
With gelatin, the colder the better. And you want to give it a few days to work.
So I would add it during the last week of lagering.
It might turn out to not be necessary. If you can hold it at 34 for a month it will probably drop crystal clear all on its own (assuming good mash pH, full conversion, no other issues).
This...although your yeast selection may make a difference. I seem to remember hearing that the White Labs Kolsch yeast is a b**** to clear...or maybe it was the Wyeast version...whatever the case Im doing a side by side next week with those yeasts! I will report results.
