Those were definitely two main concerns of mine. The instructions said the unit leaked beer, but I found that if i tightened it pretty well (most home brewers are pretty handy and can tell when it is too tight) and didn't push is with to much psi it didn't leak at all really. But i only used about 4 psi because I didn't care how long it took, although it only took about 10min. Then i ran it until it was pushing co2 through the filter and I only found about 4 oz in the filter housing.
As far as stripping flavors, i used two filters, 2 micron and .7 micron. I tasted the beer in the primary, secondary, keg before any filter, after the 2 micron and after the .7 micron and didn't notice any real difference, other that the beer tasting a bit crisper which was probably my imagination.
