This is the first time that I have brewed Mangrove Jack's Belgian Ale and it has been in the fermenter for the past 9 days and has a stable SG reading. Is it advisable to use finings on this brew?

If necessary, yes. However you are not at the point where I would even consider finings. It is by no means necessary to use them unless you are unhappy with some aspect of the clarity of the beer. You can achieve a good result by placing your beer in a cold spot for a week or two to allow the proteins, tannis, and yeast to fall out on their own thus avoiding the need for other fining agents.

Thanks for the response. Will it affect the final result by leaving it another week or so once the final SG has been reached? –  masjo Oct 19 '13 at 3:01

Only in that it will likely improve the beer. –  Denny Conn Oct 19 '13 at 16:56
