It was actually almost 3 gallons that I separated into 2 one gallon batches. I used a mini jet filter worked great, and I swear it tasted better after too.

I too have one of these and have actually run 10 gallons through it once, the last 2 gallons went quite a bit slower so I would recommend sticking to only 5 gallons per filter set. Also use a 1% solution citric acid and water. Run about 1gal through the filter pads before filtering the actual beverage. The first time I used it without doing this and ruined my 1 gal batch, made it taste like paper filters.... That one is still in solitary confinement until it shapes up.

ah, ok I have that same mini jet, I use it for my wine batches, but they are usually 5 G batches, so I was just not wanting to "waste" a filter from a 5-6G batch on 1G batches...but I couldn't think of an easier/effective way

thanks for your reply.

(3) Wizard's Socks; my ghettotastic half gallon brew of fly agaric and lemon infused mead (named because of the day or so I left the ingredients to stew in muslin stockings before adding the honey and preparing the must).


You ferment fly agaric (Amanita Muscaria) in your brew? The mushroom has toxins which will (not can) severely damage your liver and kidney's. I've never understood why people wish to consume muscimol and ibotenic acid.

I'm missing the point! This about PHOTOS of Mead or a Lecture on mushrooms?

The point is the poison in the Amanita Muscaria (Fly agaric) 'mushroom' can severely damage your kidneys and liver. Since someone in this post is 'brewing' it and has posted it in this thread, I feel it is important for others to know.

Sorry the warning has bothered you Southern Yankee.

Reason: Spelling
