What's the problem with storing plain gelatin solution in the fridge
until the time you use it, and then take the portion to be used,
microwave it for a few seconds, stir it, and microwave again, until it
becomes consistent solution? (usually takes me 2 cycles) I just don't
want to let any part of the gelatin to boil hard. Mixing once or twice
helps a lot. Then add hardener and coat.

In order to prevent bacterial/fungal growth, I add a small amount of
2-phenylphenol in the gelatin solution when dry gelatin is dissolved.
