Clean up your beer and give it that sparkling clarity you see in commercial brews. Filtering removes yeast and dry-hop sediment, both of which can impart off flavors. It's also a great way to give your beer that extra edge in competition.
This two-pack of filter pads are for use with our FIL45 series of plate filters.
"Sterile" pads will provide between 0.3-0.5 Micron filtration.
Please Note: These pads do not remove 100% of bacteria. Only an bsolute rated, 0.45 micron or less cartridge filter can remove all bacteria. All pad filters are rated as "Nominal" filters, meaning a small percentage of the pores in the filter are larger than the stated micron rating. Only certain styles of cartridge filters carry an "Absolute" rating, meaning that all the pores are the stated micron size or smaller.

Can't be sure they work?
I think the pad(s) are working, (they get dirty). The whole system leaks like a sieve. I lose more beer than I actually filter. There are serious engineering and construction flaws with this system. I WOULD NOT recommend this garbage to an enemy let alone a fellow brewwer.

Good filters
Typically I don't bother filtering beer as the added benefit doesn't seem worth the expense. But when I want a clearer, more commercial-grade look these filters do the trick.

Makes the beer look so clear
It is amazing how much yeast is still present even when one thinks that no filtering is required.

Makes the beer clear, but clogs easily. I transfer from the connical through the filter into the keg. Near the end of the xfer, the CO2 pressure needs to be increased to push out the last gallon/litre

Slow transfer
I filtered with the rough pads before these sterile pads and I still could barely get any beer to flow through. I went to filtering cold with the polish pads once only and it is fine now.
