How to Filter and Carbonate Your Home Brew

If you are using a filtration system, then you should just force carbonate your beer. The best and quickest way to filter and carbonate is to keg your beer.

  • Using the Draft Brewer Beer Filtration System place the Coarse filter into the filter housing between the two kegs.
  • Run the beer through the coarse filter from the first keg into the second keg.
  • Replace the coarse filter with the Polishing or Fine filter.
  • Run your beer back through the polishing or fine filter into the first keg.
  • Now, just hook up your CO2 tank to the keg, and carbonate. See our article on How to Force Carbonate Your Beer.

  • If you plan to bottle condition your beer, filtration is not recommended. If, however you really want to filter your beer, you can re-prime the beer by adding a very small amount of highly flocculant yeast I (such as LalBrew® Nottingham English Ale Dry Yeast) to your bottles.
