Description

Most breweries and wineries use a large plate filter system to achieve clear product. Now you can do the same at home with two corny kegs. Our Beer and Wine Plate Filter Kit has a larger surface area, which means more yeast and particulate extraction than our cartridge filter, and comes with our plate filter, two disposable filter pads, tubing, flare fittings, and two flare beverage ball locks.  This kit works great as either a beer or wine filter, but you may want to use different pads depending on the results you're hoping to achieve

Each filtering session requires two pads at a time, and each pad must be the same micron to work. The beer or wine is pushed out of the keg and into the housing at 5 PSI, where it passes on either side of the filter housing, then gets forced from the center through the pads, where it is then pushed out into your clean keg. The rough sides of both filters should be facing each other on the inside of the filter, so the smooth sides face outward.

Each filter pad set is good for approximately 5 gallons of beer when the beer has been filtered by the previous size pads or you are starting with the rough filters. These pads are not designed to be back flushed and reused and should be used in one session.

Does the job, Leaks considerably.
Got this to filter trial batches of cold brew coffee. Leaked pretty considerably, but might be due to the sediment load.

Polished the coffee right up, though.

Probably a Winner
I have used this filter on one ten gallon batch of Dry Hopped IPA that was cloudy. I used 0,5 micron filters. I put the filter assembly in a pan because I read about leaking. I was able to seal the leaks on the top but it must have been leaking at the bottom because I ended up with quite a bit in the pan. I will keep a better eye on it next time. The beer did come out clear. I will use it again. I don't know if I will use the 1.0 or the 1.5 micron pads

Works as advertised. Very pleased. Much crisper flavors in finished beer.

works like a charm
Wasn't sure it was working as the beer being filtered looked clear going into the filter. When all was said and done I went to through the filters away and they had completely changed color. The beer is incredibly clear. Should've bought one years ago.
I only wish it came with more filters.

No leaks, durable plastic housing. I would wish tubing was silicone and not pvc. 5-7 micron filter that came with the kit worked great on my cider.

Does the job...decent instructions. Pads get expensive.

Works Great / Easy to Setup and Use
No leaks, hassles or drama after several uses. Wish I bought this sooner.

Read the instructions carefully and do what they say and set up is easy, and no leaks, even at higher pressures. Sanitization is a lot easier than I thought it would be.

My process is to cold crash and maybe fine as before and then transfer from carboy to keg (as before) but through the filter using POLISH pads only. Transfer time through polish pads is about 15-25 min (instructions say it can be up to an hour).

- Beer is crystal clear
- No sediment in bottles that have been sitting around for a while
- I can get the last drops out of a carboy and still have a crystal clear keg
- Problems w/ gout are better -- (not sure if this is due to the filter or not)

A great tool for those who place an importance on clear beer.

It works...
The filter works alright but will leak if not used carefully.

Clear beer is always an option with this tool!
Another of the "what took me so long?" purchases. This plate filter worked very well, and although there is a little leakage (as noted in the enclosed literature), it was minimal and nothing a conveniently placed towel couldn't handle. Easy to dismantle and reassemble. I soaked mine in Iodophor, and used a weak solution to sanitize the filters as well. This is a must have tool!
