Going to dry hop on my IPA and dont know if add gelatin to primary then rack to secondary then add hops or dry hop on primary and then gelatin and then rack to secondary for aging
what do you think?
For taste and aroma, 4 to 7 days of dry hopping are optimal. For clarity I prefer to give isinglass 7 to 14 days. Probably it's the same with gelatin, these are similar. Thus, I obviously add gelatin first, hops second.
One more thing. If you want to rack to secondary, strongly consider adding gelatin after racking. I guess you will be using another bucket just for bottling? If so, racking your beer from sediment, and then adding gelatin, helps. You will not have any waste in your wort, nothing you could pick from the bottom when you stir gelatin in your beer. The less particles gelatin needs to drop to the bottom, the more effective it is. Only when you plan to bottle directly from your second fermentation bucket, adding gelatin to primary makes sense.
