The beer filter gets installed inline between two ball lock Cornelius kegs using CO2 pressure to push the beer out of the full keg through the filter and into the clean keg. This kit is designed to filter out particles down to 1 micron, which is considered fine filtration. At one micron the beer will be clear after filtration provided you do not have a starch haze. Filtering also accelerates the conditioning process to just a few days. Most of our customers who use the filtering kit find that they; keg beer, chill it overnight, filter the next day, carbonate, and are drinking clear beer in a couple days. For those who want to bottle beer without sediment, filtering combined with the use of a counter pressure bottle filler will allow you to put crystal clear, carbonated beer into bottle. The beer filtering kit comes with one 10" filter housing, a 1 micron 10" spun poly sediment filter, fittings for connection to the filter housing, 3' of beverage line, clamps, and two beverage out ball lock quick disconnects.

Spun-polypropylene filters are disposable filters and cannot be cleaned and used more than once. However, you can filter multiple kegs with one filter. 3 micron will remove most yeast, and 1 micron filtration will remove almost all yeast. All filters are rated nominal (will filter out 80-85% of matter at given rating).

Pretty good product, we have leak problems
We have a difficult time getting a good seal when screwing down the top. This results in leaks that get worse as the filter housing cools down from the cold beer, and then we have to tighten it again - usually it takes two people to get it tight enough. I am glad that I have the filter housing, filtering the beer is really valuable if kegs are going to events. But it is not as easy to use as I had hoped.

Filter was too large for canister
Unfortunately the filter was too large for the container and it would not seal tight.

Save your money!
I bought the filter in an attempt to ensure a clarity. But the o-ring did not/would not seal. There was more beer hitting the floor than was going to the keg. So I thought that maybe the .01 micron filter was a little much. So I started again with an .03 micron with the same results. I am truly disappointed!

Try Try Again...
The first try yielded a beer-drenched-kitchen and soaked hobbyist-brewer. The "O" ring that came with the filter was crimped when I opened the housing and I SHOULD HAVE been more cautious. Nonetheless I trudged ahead and the resulting bad-seal caused a shower of wort-laden brew all over the place.

I complained to Customer Service. They were great in responding with a sympathetic tone AND sending me TWO "O" rings! Long story short. I installed the ring, connected the two OUT ball locks and SLOWLY ramped up the pressure to push the sediment/liquid through the filter.

It worked great.

People say they had leaking but I filtered 50 gallons of beer (5 - 10 gallon batches) in one day and never had an issue. Used 3 micron filters with all my beer.

Recommend it.

Good Filter
I've used this many times and have had very little issues. Still tinkering to use it as a hopback but for what it's meant for, it works great!

Good Filter
Used it for 3 batches. So far i feel the filter has improved each beer.

Good Product
I usually use it for filtering my ciders. However, with a carbon filter it serves a dual purpose. Chlorine and taste filtration :)

Gets the job done
I have used this multiple times on both new and carbed beer and it gets the job done every time. Having the ability to use different micron filters is a plus.

so far so good
Used this once on a ten gallon batch. I cold crashed for 4 days before, transferred to kegs, then ran thru the filter. I though the filter was going to come out filled with sediment, but it wasn't that bad. Had a little leak at first, but a little tighter twist solved that. Will probably use on all my batches from now on.
