Default Midwest Gift Certificate = Clarity Filter System

What the heck. It was $58 delivered to my doorstep, and I had $60 remaining on a gift certificate.

I'll only use it on my lighter pales, blondes and cream ales...but it was more or less just a toy than an absolute necessity.

It adds about 1 hour to the kegging process (for 10 gallons), but I don't mind the extra beer cave time.

SWEET! I'd be curious to see pics of a pint of filtered vs. non-filtered side by side.

You and me both.

I suspect that there will still be chill haze (these aren't professional polishing filters), but the time it takes for the haze to clear should be shorter.

I'm also confident that the yeast has been filtered out so moving a keg of beer that has cleared, shouldn't make it cloudy again.

Pretty neat - definitely would be nice to filter some light ales for non-craft drinking party goers, etc. I thought it would run more than $58 shipped; not bad!

I'd also like to see a side-by-side...

And if you decide it's really not worth it as a beer filter, you could use it as an uber hop back...A club had one of those jammed with hops @ natl homebrew day. It was sweet!
