So I filtered a few gallons into a keg 2 days ago. My thoughts were to do a side-by-side and see how the filtered vs. unfiltered tasted. I did a tasting woth my local BJCP amd he liked the unfiltered better. As did I, but bis comments substantiated that when you filter, you filter hop flavor by removing free floating hop culmones. It was a good experience, I am going to.brew this same recipe again soon!
