Is all gelatine the same?

Postby brewpete » Tue Apr 10, 2018 14:05

I found this unflavoured gelatine on Amazon. It's alot cheaper than gelatine from the home brew shop... but is it OK to use in beer?

The answer is no. Google gelatine and,I think, Wikipedia will give you the answers.
Edit gelatine is so cheap in supermarkets in sheet form just use that. About 90 pence for seven sheets.

I'm sure you're right BUT a google search failed to enlighten me as to why the Amazon product
was not good ?? Could you explain ?

Thanks for that. Having read that article, I am still seeing no reason why the Amazon product is not totally fine to use...?

Your initial question was ‘is all gelatine the same’ to which the reply was ‘no’.

I don’t think you will have any issues with the gelatine. You might do, but I can’t think of an obvious reason why that would be the case.
