Is it a carbon block filter? A regular run of the mill carbon filter will not remove more than 60 or 70% of the chloramine, even at .5 gpm. And if you are going faster than .5 gpm no 10" filter will remove chloramine, it needs the contact time.
Chloramine levels are highly variable in our water supply, I had good and bad batches from different times using a cheap carbon filter before I learned that you need a better filter or Campden.
Plenty of folks use the Campden tablets, unless you are going to buy a filter which you research and know will remove the chloramines I urge you to use them, they are cheap and easy while throwing out beer is not!
