Just added gelatin to my cold conditioning beer before. Haven't used the stuff for a long time and I must say when I started heating it to pasteurize it, it smelt like absolute hell. It reminded me of the worst bit of pork I have ever ate, which really has turned me off pork since. Anyway I figure its got to smell like shit if its made of hoof but still didn't remember it being that bad. I added it anyway on the notion that it didnt smell when it was cold and that it will be at the bottom of the fermenter when I bottle. I read a few other people noticed the smell and it didn't impact the flavour of the beer at all but I wanted to know if anyone on here had noticed it? By the way it was the Wards brand from Coles.
