Application Note: Gelatin Gels

Gelatin is weighed into water to typically create a 6.67% solution in standard Bloom bottles with stoppers. The mix is then stirred and left to hydrate for approximately 3 hours at room temperature. Once soaked, bottles are placed in a 65°C bath for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally to assure that the gelatin is completely dissolved. After allowing the Bloom jars to cool for 15 minutes at room temperature, they are then conditioned for 16 hours in 10°C water bath.
