Sous Vide Gelatin?

Hello, this is my first post.  I was wondering if I could use a sous vide, which can maintain water at a constantly moving, very accurate and consistent temperature, to melt gelatin and hold it in that state until needed?   I am thinking around 130°F.   Do you think staying in a prolonged melted state would impact the integrity?   Thank you so much.

  • Thanks Chris!  I'll give it a try and report back. Cheers! 
  • It worked.  I set my sous vide for 158°F, put the gelatin in a zip-lock freezer bag and once the temperature was reached, submerged the bag, letting the air escape before sealing it and let it heat.  I let it sit in the bath for around 30 minutes (it was never going to burn or boil) and when I was ready (and using an oven mitt) I removed the bag, cut the tip off the corner and squeezed it in the gelatin into the negative mold.  I am very happy with the results, especially since this is my first appliance.
