Default Can you reuse water filters after running beer through them?

Hi All -

So i filter my beer. I can do up to 3 levels in one run. usually something like 30um, 10um, 5um.

Once i'm done i thoroughly rinse them and before reusing them i put them in my pressure cooker for 15 minutes at 15 psi.

So this method is a pain in my a** but it works.

Does anyone have a simpler method out there?


Thanks for any assistance!

Tipsy

I know it's a pain, but I think I'd stick with your original "overkill" method. Most of my experience is 13bbl size (which I know is a LOT different than Homebrew), but I would ALWAYS trust an autoclave over a sanitizer.
