Can i just use the .5 to filter both yeast and bacteria at the same time?
First, I'm going to have to admit that I'm in the same position as you. I've built my filter and I'm going to try it out out with the 5 micron first. Mostly because it came with the housing and I just want to practice filtering a less expensive beer with it before filtering my meads with a 1 micron.
But I have been researching the filter on some wine sites and they through out the 1 and .45 microns.
If you practiced good sanitation and it's only for personal consumption, you might not want to bother with the .45. I think they are more expensive, but if you insist, I would just use the one filter. Also, .45 might begin stripping things from the beer that you want to remain. In wine, reds only use 5 micron filters and whites use 1 micron.
