Anyone have and tricks or contraptions they have used for siphoning beer without all the troublesome fruit clogging? I racked out of the secondary with some success, but still sucked in some fruit particles. I am hoping to have a clear beer so upon my final siphon into keg I was thinking of putting some sort of sanitized mesh device over the end of the siphon . Has anyone had success with this approach?
No. I wouldn't use that as little pieces of steel would likely end up in your beer and turn to rust. The kitchen gadjet section of your local grocery store should have these pot scrubbers. They come in plastic, copper and stainless steel.
