Mythbuster exbeeriment time: does use of gelatin to fine beer not have an impact on the head formation and foam attributes or does it.
Interesting discussion on head formation and retention as it relates to use of gelatin to fine beer.

Anyone interested in running an experiment and posting results, please do so here.
Here's the experiment parameters: using this protocol for gelatin : http://www.bertusbrewery.com/2012/06/how-to-clear-your-beer-with-gelatin.html
ideally, brew batch of beer of choice- average hopped beer less than 50ibu and if so inclined, another batch as secondary experiment with differnet malts and hops and IBU of choice. Split the batch equally and fine 1/2 with gelatin, 1/2 without. carb both the same (bottle or keg) and then evaluate the head formation and retention, and if you choose also compare any other differences...flavor, aroma, etc.
Post your results and pics here.
I will do this with my dortmunder that I'm brewing this weekend, so in about 3-4 weeks I will post results.
