Default Inline filter for Keg

Hey guys,
I usually have a lot of sediment after racking to my keg, as I do not rack to secondary to clear. Has anyone ever just attached a inline filter to a keg with good results? As I have a full keg of beer for tonight with a bunch of friends who are picky about yeasties in their beer, I could care less. I have thought about a simple $1 fuel filter. I also have a water filter with hose fittings I guess I could use, its kinda big to lug around and would waste some beer in the end. I thought I saw a DIY project specifically for this but can not find it. Any help would be appreciated.

That my friend is a good question. I say hook the damn thing up and give it a try. I will tell you this from someone that filters about 1/3 of my brews. A fuel filter will not do it. Unless you have very little sediment. Just for a side note. A filter will NOT clear your beer instantly.
Have fun @ the party







Pssst... Just remember, if they don't like it and don't drink it. It's just more for you!
Cheers
JJ

I try to get my kegs to the party location at least 5 hours before hand to give them time to clear out again after being moved. That's really the only way that I know of. If you filter it, let us know how it works.

I don't always secondary but I never have a lot of sediment in the keg. Don't rack to keg if you beer isn't clear yet. How soon are you trying to keg after pitching?

Not sure about after the beer is in the keg, but check this out for filtering when going into the keg.

That filtering kit actually has to be installed between two kegs.

My initial thought is that you would probably just end up with a glass full of foam - but what do I know? Anyone have an idea what micron filters are used in Fuel Filters? Or what type plastic they are made from? You could rig it between two kegs to clear the beer, then carb...

I was going to recommend the filtering kit from morebeer, it works great. It doesnt take long to filter between two kegs either, and is easy to backwash.
