I have only used it on wine, so I can't say from experience if you have to
repitch.

One thing to remember is that gelatin takes out some tannin, which is good
if you have an excess. If you don't have enough, however, the gelatin
itself won't settle out, and will contribute to the haze. I think the
stochiometric mix is about half as much tannin powder as gelatin (by
volume).
