Mash Chemistry and Brewing Water Calculator

The most common use rate for gelatin is 1g of gelatin for each 3.8L of beer. 6g per 23L

Dissolve the gelatin in 60ml of water per gram of gelatin. Using this rate it takes 5 grams of gelatin dissolved in 300ml of water to dose a 25L batch of homebrew.

To dissolve and rehydrate the gelatin powder sprinkle it onto the cool water and give it a gentle initial mix then allow it to rest for 15-30 minutes depending on how patient you are.

After allowing it to “bloom”, stir the mixture together until you don’t see any more solids.

Heat the solution on the stove top or in the microwave until it is at least 70C. If using a microwave heat slowly in bursts and check temperature.

Pour the mixture into the already cold fermenter (<10C minimum, <2C even better) and agitate if possible to disperse the mixture a little better in the beer.

Let the fermenter rest cold for 2-3 days or longer then rack to bottles or a keg.
