One poster suggested the tried and true method of using a bed of hops (as is also suggested in noonan's book) but I believe that this does not necessary filter cold break - does it? Other methods, such as whirlpooling, stainless scouring pads, picking up the wort from the side of the kettle are all moving towards a unified theory of wort filtering, of which "no filtering" is one option.Bobby_M said:Ugh,
I guess I'm getting jaded but I think there are about two "can I filter my beer" threads every week. If you have just a little patience you don't need to filter. It's another great opportunity to contaminate and at the very least its an additional hassle and expense that isn't required.
