Hey all,

Wondering if anyone regularly uses Gelatine for fining?

I am thinking about it for my next brew. My only worry is that I am bottling and am worried the gelatine will drop too much yeast out of suspension and I will have trouble bottle carbing.

Has anyone successfully used this method?

I bottle. I used gelatin maybe once or twice with some light lagers. Wouldn't bother again. I brew clear enough beer as it is. Maybe others who keg could offer advice, but like me, you bottle. I try to keep my process as simple as possible. Have a look, there's stacks of posts about fining with gelatin.

I haven't used a fining agent since I swapped from bottles to kegs. I find that cold crashing gives me a clear enough result, most of the time. When I did bottle I used finings all the time. Never had an issue with not having enough yeast to carbonate the bottles. I've cold crashed and bottled and there was still enough yeast for carbonation (not sure what yeast I was using).
