    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

    Craft The Perfect Draft - Tips For Clearing Your Beer

    Whenever I transfer my wort from the kettle to the fermentor or my beer from the fermentor to a keg or bottling bucket I also see it as an opportunity to clean it too. Reducing the amount of trub your finished beer contains before packaging it goes a long way in preventing the formation of chill...

    Filtering beer, bright ale, how to?

    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...

    Filtering DIY

    So I'm pretty new to brewing. Ive done a few beer kits and a half dozen hydromels of different flavours. Super fun. I really don't like the sediment, so Ive ordered parts to do pop bottle carbonation, since I only have small batches and have limited space at home. I tried cold crashing last...

    California Water filter and RO with tank and pump

    This is a 50 gal water drum with an attached reverse osmosis and two stage cartage filter system that will fill the tank with brew ready water until it is full and then shut itself off. There is also a 1 HP motor and pump and transfer hoses. The whole thing sits on a barrel dolly. Located in...

    Basic primitive filter idea

    Hi all. This is probably a REALLY stoooopid idea, but I'm an amateur who likes to think outside the box, so... :D I am into very primitive methods of brewing, i.e. as quick, cheap and low-tech or "down-and-dirty" as possible. I'm not after a "perfect" beer, but rather exploring the simplest...

    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?

    Spin down filters for clarification? Would a filter system like this, used for filtering sand and bulk items out of water, be useful in home winemaking?

    Water filtration

    Would the water filtered through a refrigerator be sufficient for homebrewing?
