comment How best to clarify when wheat beer yeast used
No, gelatin shouldn't affect it...but I don't have a lot of experience with gelatin. The couple times I used it I decided it was more hassle than it was worth since I could just leave the beer alone for a while and it would clear on its own.

comment Is there such a thing as malt-free beer?
It might help if we know why malt was a problem so we could help you find what you need.

revised Are there any particular steps to fixing a batch of beer with extra trub / hot-break, or should it settle (as best as possible) on its own?

comment Transferring wort from brew kettle with ball valve
Excellent correct answer! But if you buy a pump, you'll find other uses for it. I bought one to do recirculating cooling and found that it cut my cooling time to less than half of what it was before I used a pump. I consider the ability to xfer wort to the fermenter a wonderful, but secondary, benefit.

comment Lots of trub affecting specific gravity readings?
How could it affect the gravity reading if it was in suspension? It wasn't dissolved into the wort, was it? My answer was based on science and experience. Sorry if I misunderstood what was being asked.
