Pardon me if this has been addressed previously -didn't find it if it had.
I'm attempting to home-roll my own beer filtration system to help clean up my my lighter-colored brews (I'll probably run my mead through them, for that matter)
Anyway, I'm looking at a $22 cartridge housing at Lowes (whirlpool whole-house) and one of the activated charcoal filter elements thats supposed to remove particulate matter, etc.
My only real concern is the claim that the filter removes chlorine odor (and rust and what have you) -I'm concerned that this same charcoal would remove some of the flavors and aromas (hops?) from the beer -I certainly wouldn't want to turn it back into water!
My first impulse was to cobble it together, and push a keg through it to see, but I don't like the idea of spending the bread to make this, and ruin a keg of beer just to see.
Any thoughts on this?
