Clarifying a home brew with gelatin clarification in the keg
I’m clarifying my first beer using a Gelatin Clarification process, and it all seems easy enough and then in a couple days just clear the line and then serve some nice clean beer. Usually clarity is not an important feature I look for but I have heard a lot about this technique and thought I would give it a shot and see how it does. Leading to my question:
I am blooming 1 tsp of knox gelatin (Unflavored Gelatin) in 2/3 cup of water for 30 minutes, and then in short bursts in the microwave heating it up to 150°f to pasteurize it and then pouring into the keg, blanketing with gas and leaving in the fridge for 24-48 hours. After at least 24 hours i should clear the lines of the sludge on the bottom of the keg and then clear beer will flow. The gelatin will coagulate and settle to the bottom pulling anything in suspension out with it.
The reading I did prior to adding the gelatin to the keg was from an “The Gelatin Effect” by www.brulosophy.com/ and can be found at brulosophy.com/2015/01/05/the-gelatin-effect-exbeeriment-results/
