Yes but i definately dont have the fermentor to do that! lol I would end up with a mess everywhere trying to do this.

my ciders are sediment-free due to racking several times over several months- you could do it with beer I guess if you are careful and do not introduce to much O2... it doesn't seem to bother cider- maybe because of the higher alcohol content?

I don't think it is worth the risk- part of the homebrew process is pouring your creation into a sturdy pint glass, gazing into it, sticking your nose in the froth and quaffing if- the smoothness is enhanced by the glass... I can't imagine sucking down a homebrew straight from the bottle as if it is a bottle of Corona or something equally vile...

I agree that homebrew is def best served in a glass, however for taking it to a get together it sure would be nice to bring a 6 pack that i dont have to get a glass to drink it. Thats why i think im going to get just a small order of those sediment remover caps that were on this thread. they seem to work well enough.

If you keg, you could force carbonate and fill from the keg. Buying a beer gun or counter-pressure filler is probably cheaper/easier than using those sed ex caps.

I'd rather be able to bottle on demand since I loath bottling. I don't have a beer gun, so for now I just bring growlers with me when I go places. Nobody has complained yet... but if they did I'd go get them a PBR. That would teach them.

Look into the biermuncher bottle filler that's how I bottle from keg no fuss involved bottles stay carbed as well as any other beer.

You actually can filter an bottle condition....IIRC anything above a 5 micron filter WILL let yeast thru. I filter upon occasion, and I have filtered using a 10mic filter and although force carbing have gotten Unmistakeable yeast sediment in my bottles, after bringing them up to room temp. Only polishing filters ( 1micron or less) filter remove all the yeast.

I have used a filter that will do what you want for second stage and bottling. It is sold by gerrysbrewingproducts.com

I am going to check out that site and see if that filter works for me. I think that if it doesn't I am just going to wait and get my keg setup all going then just bottle as I need to take somewhere. seems like it will end up being easier.
