    Was at work and had the idea: on the way to the carboy, can I filter the the wort with a Shinhwa (pictures top) or through a oil frier oil filter (bottom)? I have a feeling too much silt will clog the paper filter. Or should I just buy an in-line filter to hook up to my pump? Note: normally I...

    Mesh Shinwa Filtration

    Hello everyone, I didn’t find any post with “shinwa” in it so I figured I would ask. Is a mesh shinwa too fine to filter beer out at any or all stages of the beer making process? My only concern is it getting clogged up too often Thank you

    Particulates in Fermenter

    Hello Fellow Brewers! As a starter, I'm still fairly new to the brewing ins and outs as this is something I've picked up during quarantine. My buddy and I have brewed about 70 gallons+ of beer since late July, with many successes! On our most recent batch, I've noticed some particulates in the...

    What does a filter actually remove?

    I see a lot of different filters out there, and I wonder what they actually remove and how that impacts brewing water. For example, when I brew small batch extract batches I use water filtered through my Brita pitcher (which I think uses an activated charcoal filter), and I see people that...

    Enolmatic inline filter loss?

    Anyone use the inline filter for the enolmatic bottle filler? I'm curious if anyone has calculated the loss inside the filter. I used it for the first time on a 24G batch... at that size, the loss is negligible. But, I'm going to be doing a 5G batch, and the loss could be more drastic. I...

    Storing water filters in Star San?

    So, I have a water filter system for brewing, but I don't brew often enough to keep the filter installed in the cannister between brews. (Between available time and kegerator capacity I typically brew once every two months, sometimes three, and almost never more frequently than once a month.) I...

    To Filter or Not To Filter

    Question is as the title states but here is my problem statement: I brewed a Citra Pale Ale and Cider for a wedding. Both pretty straight forward, both came out tasting great. After cold crashing, I drew some samples Cider was clear, beer has was about 50% clear but I was fine with that. Fast...

    Using Filters to Clear the Brew?

    It happens that my wife has a wine filter system similar to Buono as part of her disused winemaking gear. My questions are how much do the filters affect the taste of the beer and how do the numbers correspond to the rate of filtration?

    Light Yeast Aftertaste - Filtering?

    So I've been brewing beer for around 7 years and I feel I have my system down pretty well. I haven't had a batch go bad in years, I have a forced carbonation system and a chest freezer to control temperature when fermenting and generally my beers turn out pretty good. However, when comparing...
