A heat soluble Gelatin available in powder form. It is composed of high molecular weight mass proteins that carry a big positive charge. Prepare by mixing in warm water and then adding during a transfer. See below for different dosage rates for beer and wine.
Gelatin will help to reduce cloudiness by removing colloidal substances. It has an overall tannin polishing effect, but still preserves the phenolic compounds responsible for structure. Add at the rate of .2 to .35 grams per gallon.
Use 1/2 tsp for five gallons of beer. Dissolve gelatin into 1/4-1/2 cup of hot water to dissolve and add to beer. Wait a few days and rack off.
A rough approximate of weight is 1 tsp = 1.2 grams. We highly recommend using a scale to weigh the product for an accurate dose. We do not recommend relying on these rough conversions for accurate dosage rates.
