    One of my biggest issues with my brew was that I never got the clarity that I wanted. My beers tended to be on the line between hazy and cloudy.

    So, after hearing the Brulosophy episode about gelatin fining, I read the article but I did not follow the steps, so the results were not very impressive.

    So I tried it again, following the steps that I listed below. The results were a beer that was clear to brilliant! I was very very impressed.
