Interesting article and I like this guy's approach.

I tend to use gelatin on styles that should be clear, and leave it out on styles where it doesn't matter (e.g. saisons), but I find myself wishing for a clearer beer out of the tap anyway. Perhaps I'll use gelatin more in the future.

I mostly agree with the article, except for the part about saison and other yeast oriented beers.  When I first started using gelatin, I tried it out on a saison, and (as usual) it dropped the beer clear. Except that a good bit of the unique saison yeast character went with it. It was an otherwise good but too clean saison for my tastes.

yeah- they are usually answering lingering questions i've had, and or causing pause to evaluate what I perceived to be fact or true.
