If I fine with gelatin in a corny, can I serve clear beer from the corny or should I rack to another corny for serving?  Got a beer than needs some clearing, in the meantime I'm trying to clarify by cooling outdoors in Chicago.
If the keg won't be moving, you can serve out of the same one. If you plan on moving it, you'll kick up the sediment, so transfer to a clean keg first.
That's what I was going to say.  I do this often in the keg.

I just started using whirl-floc, and it works pretty good for me.
I have only used issenglass a couple of times , and I was really impressed with it, I would use it more often if my local store sold it. If you haven't tried it and can get your hands on some I'd say give a try.
Usually I do the geletin thing.

Whirlfloc in the boil, then most beers clear very well with a little time in the keg.  Like others, I'll transfer to another keg if the beer is going to travel.
...it's liquid bread, it's good for you!
