I haven't figured this out. If i filter my beer i can't put it in the bottles and carbonate it because it needs the yeast. I read somewhere that I can't carbonate it then filter it. I don't want to force carbonate it in a keg and bottle it. And I would naturally carbonate it in a keg but it can't be filtered first and can't be filtered after? I dont get it.
During natural carbonation yeast feed on the sugar to produce CO2 so you have to narturally carbonate before filtering.
However carbonated beer when forced through a filter will foam badly meaning you can't filter carbonated beer. So you cannot have filtered and naturally carbonated beer without adding additional yeast after filtering, eliminating most of the reason to filter.
Carbonating in a keg then filling the bottles after a good time to clear will result in very little sediment in the bottles. It does not completely eliminate the sediment but you may be hard pressed to find it.
The big question is why are you so opposed to force carbonation. Most people who can do. If you want "real ale" that fine but it comes with yeast. If you could filter it to remove the yeast then you will not be able to tell the difference between force and naturally carbonated. After all CO2 is CO2.
