I just wanted to say thanks for posting all this info. I'm a new brewer (have 5 - 5 gallon batches under my belt (extract and partial grains). I did a lot of reading on filtering vs secondaries and cold breaks and decided that the money was worth the convenience for me.

I was able to find a 1/4" to 1/4" quick connector so I didn't need the bushing adapters at the filters. I'm going to see if I can get the 1/4" tubing to fit the post adapter, but if not then I'll put the adapter at the post adapter. That would mean I only need to buy 2 bushings instead of 4 if I put them on either connector in the filter. At least by my thinking?

Thanks to all of you who posted links and provided insights. I have my filter system mostly complete. I decided to try the 5 micron and 0.5 micron. I'll see how it goes with the .5 instead of the 1 micron 'finishing' filter. I just need to get the ball post adapters and the filter cartridges (both ordered) and I'll be set.

Quick edit: My costs for everything was $62.34 including 1 round of filters (I bought the 50-pack in the link so my initial investment was quite a bit more ($66 for 50 filters, shipped from the ebay seller linked).

Thanks again!
