The exact temperature set for the gelatin depends on the formulation (amount of water, sugar, etc.) but is around room temperature (70 ° F / 20 ° C) under conditions commonly used in food. At this temperature it is set very loosely and becomes firmer at refrigerator temperatures (around 32F / 0C).
The sealed jars of jelly can be stored at room temperature or in the refrigerator. Therefore, we strongly advise against packaging refrigerated with the gelatin mix. The prepared gelatin should be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator or at least covered with plastic wrap to prevent air and moisture from entering.
Homemade jelly products such as salads or desserts should be consumed within 7 days and always kept tightly closed in the refrigerator.

It usually cools down sufficiently in the freezer for about 20 minutes, but beware! If you put the jelly in the freezer to cool before pouring it, place a hot plate under the jelly bowl. Otherwise, bowls that come into contact with the bottom of the freezer will cool the bottom of the bowl faster than others.
Fresh pineapples prevent gelatin from settling because it contains a protease called bromelain, which digests the bonds between collagen molecules that turn the liquid into a gel.
Generally, standard jellies prepared with one and a half cups of water for half a glass of alcohol settle in the refrigerator after two to four hours. Try removing it first and you will end up with a watery, watery root. The sprouts can be stored in the refrigerator for a good three to four days, so there’s really no rush.
Use a metal spoon to stir until the crystals or powder dissolve completely. If you add ice cubes to the mixture instead of cold water, the jelly will harden faster. Use the same amount of ice cubes as cold water required in the recipe. Stir vigorously until the liquid thickens.
Dissolve the gelatin in boiling water before adding cold water to the mixture while cooking from scratch. If the gelatin is not completely dissolved before adding cold water, it will not set properly.
If it gets too hot, the jelly will lose its gellability, which means your jelly may lose its shape. Storage at room temperature should prevent this.
Jelly is a kind of semi-rigid structure suspended in a liquid. If you heat it enough, the protein structure will dissolve again and the liquid will pass. But if you cool it down enough, the liquid water will freeze and solidify.
As soon as the gelatin has solidified, it can be dissolved again and reused several times. Gelatin has a relatively low melting point and liquefies when stored in a warm environment. Small amounts of gelatin can be dissolved in hot tap water in a container. Larger quantities can be heated on a pot of boiling water.
Edible gelatin can have an odor, yes. Anything from a slight odor to a pungent odor is normal, if not desirable.
Maybe because it is made from animal carcasses, it retains some of the pungent smell of the carcass?
It is a solid at room temperature. Heat it to body temperature and it will turn into a liquid. So when you eat it, it literally melts in your mouth. Jelly itself has no flavor - the taste of JellO and other similar sweets comes from the added flavors.
Every website I have found on the internet has stated that it should only cover them when it cools down. The plastic wrap will do the trick. Once it is well gelled, you can put the lid back on to prevent it from taking on any other smells or tastes from the refrigerator. It appears that you are not using pure gelatin, but a finished product.
