To dry a filter or not to dry, that is the question
Ok so i want to buy a cartridge carbon filter like this one.
Whirlpool at Lowe's: Standard Whole House Opaque Pre-Filtration Housing
my question is, i am only going to use it for brewing, which i hope will be about twice a month. How should i store the filter when i am not using it? should i take the filter apart and take the carbon filter out to let it dry? or store it full of water?
Full of water means that stagnant water can grow nasties. dry means that the filter is exposed to air. Neither seems like that good an option.
Thanks in advance for your ideas
