I didn't realize gelatin wasn't kosher, or at least the kind I bought wasn't. So my first couple of batches won't be sampled by a few close relatives of mine (more for me!). But I would like them to try my beer. But here's my quandary: I can't find kosher gelatin anywhere near me. I did find some on Amazon but it's stupidly expensive (and out of stock). Isinglass is SOMETIMES kosher but the kind I can find isn't. And while I have no problem with non-kosher stuff, throwing plastic bits (PVPP) in sounds yucky.
My next batch is an oatmeal stout. Rather than bend over backwards to find something by this weekend, can I simply drop the temperature of my fermenter to just above freezing for a day? Would that be of ANY benefit? Or do I just forgo any kind of fining and bottle it as-is? Am I being irrational about my dislike of plastic finings?
