Product Description – Here  Use coupon code BEERDEAL to get this discount.

About: 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.  [keep reading]

Hands On: More Beer’s Plate Filtering Setup

More Beer’s Beer and Wine Plate Filter Kit in action

First… Why would you want to filter your beer?

  1. You want to drink your beer soon.  During conditioning, a lot of what we’re doing is waiting for stuff to fall out of suspension.  Filtering hastens that process.
  2. You want to transport your kegged beer.  Transporting your beer stirs up anything that’s in the bottom of the keg.  Filtering means you don’t need to worry about stirring a bunch of stuff up.
  3. Clarity.  You’re interested in having great clarity for a particular style of beer.
  4. You have a problem with your beer.  Filtering down to the sterile filter level may remove off flavors.  That’s a maybe.

The process for filtering beer is basically…

  1. Assemble the unit and hook up tubing.
  2. Run 1 gallon of water through the plate filter.
  3. Run Star San through the filter.
  4. Filter your beer.

Instructions say to expect the whole process to take about 45 minutes.  I’d say that’s about right.  The process was a breeze.  I was able to multi task and get other things done around the brewery during this process.


Here is the complete unit with tubing and disconnects


The fasteners on this plate chiller tighten by hand.
Notches are designed to make assembly quick.


One side removed


The center ring.  This takes two filter pads.  One on each side of this ring.


Pads are available in rough, polish and sterile.  You need to work sequentially through these.  Sterile is only recommended in the case that your beer has flaws.  That filter strips quite a bit of out of your beer.  I only used the rough filter in my test.  I was very happy with the clarity that the rough filter produced.


The whole thing sandwiched together


I fermented this 5 gallon batch in a 10 gallon Cornelius keg.  You can see that inside the deep freeze.  I hooked the filter directly up to the fermenter and sent the beer right to the receiving keg.


Here’s the used filter.


Here’s what’s left in the fermenter.


This beer was just sitting on the muck in the bottom of my fermenter


This setup does what’s it supposed to do.  It’s easy to set up and easy to use.  It adds a little bit of time to the kegging process, but you can do other things during that process.  It’s nice to have the option to filter when the situation presents itself.Here’s the bottom of the keg after the beer was consumed.  As you can see… no trub at all.
