Cloudy brickwarmer

Made some brickwarmer, ended up very cloudy. Tried to do a cold crash with gelatin as a fining agent.
anybody have any ideas why this didn’t work.

We need more info from you before anyone can diagnose what happened. You tried to cold crash? How cold did the beer get, and for how long was it kept at that temperature? What was your procedure for the gelatin? I’ve never had a problem with it clearing up cider or beer.

I’ve made it twice now and it was cloudy initially both times. I don’t mind cloudiness so I did nothing and it cleared up in a month despite my negligence. I keg my beer - if that makes a difference. As far as gelatin not working, that is very odd.

I had it down to 34 deg for about twelve hours.
Used 1 teaspoon in 2\3 cup of at 150. Let it sit for 8-10 hours(overnight).
Tried first glass, had little to nothing in it. Beer still tastes fine, just cloudy.
I did keg it before cold crashing.

It needs at least 3 days for gelatine to drop clear. 12 hours is nothing! Cold crashing and time is always your best bet.

Misunderstood what I read, thought it worked faster. Will wait and see, might not be any left to see if it clears.
