1 year agoAlmost a good implementationThe filter works well as it should, and the included backflush assembly makes that step easy. The hoses are good length for the operation.
The one big flaw is that the hoses are connected directly to NPT fittings on the filter head. Assembly is complicated by the dangling hoses. Hoses are difficult to clean without unscrewing them from the plastic head, and difficult to reassemble without spoiling sanitation.
A better implementation would use flare fittings on the filter head and all four hose ends.March 25, 2017Purchased
over 2 years agoClearly works wellI have used the Beerbrite two times now. It performed very good. It is very easy to use. For 3.99 a cartridge it is well worth the investment.June 22, 2016
- Customer Q&A
Browse 11 questions Browse 11 questions and 34 answersCan this filter be used with an auto siphon?BEST ANSWER: IMHO... sort of. I don't think using the autosiphon as pump will work well, but I can attest that gravity is enough once siphon established. I filtered keg to keg by gravity with gas inlets jumpered for equalization and air exclusion; fermenter to bottling bucket through filter should work great (main issue keg to keg is risk of clogged poppet upstream of filter)Can this filter be used to filter wine?BEST ANSWER: This will work but it won't be as effective as a wine filter. Cheers!Is this is 10" system with a "standard housing"? More specifically, can it be used with "The Clarifier" (reusable stainless steel filter cartridge) from Hastings Brew Works?BEST ANSWER: This is a standard filter housing, so if that item is said to work with standard filter housings, it ought to work with this filtering system.Are the inflow and outflow openings 1/4" and is that a 1/4" barb?BEST ANSWER: I believe the connections are 3/8" but no worries. The connections are already made and secured It comes with more than enough food grade tubing. The liquid connections are a flare nut to flare style liquid disconnects. It comes with a back flush connector to flush the filter cartridge after use. I use Star San to sanitize the filter cartridge. I found 10-15 psi is enough to push the beer. Note: filter the beer BEFORE it is carbonated or it will foam a lot.After I use the filter can it be washed and sanitized and reused ?BEST ANSWER: Yes - I've done it without any trouble - and no subsequent infection in beers filtered afterwards. Remove filter, rinse thoroughly with warm water and then reassemble. Follow with StarSans. I rinse again and sanitize again just before reuse.I'd like to use this to filter my beer, but do not keg. Would this system be adaptable to using say a brew pump to push the beer through the filter and into my bottling bucket?Draft Brewer® BeerBrite Filtration SystemBEST ANSWER: Yes it would but I would not waste your money. Cool your beer to around 32 to 40 degrees then heat about 6 oz of water to 150 degrees and add 1/2 tsp unflavored gelatin to the 6oz of water until dissolved then dump in your 5 gal of beer, gently swirl to mix and let sit for 2 or 3 days and then bottle. For the money your going to spend buy one of the kegging systems they offer I promise you will not regret it once you start kegging. The Steelhead pump works very well but lacks a method to mount it so one has to be creative with that aspect of the pump.Can I put two filters in series and run the filter process once with fewer connect disconnect cycles?BEST ANSWER: should work
I found that the coarse filter does a pretty good job of filtering - never actually used the fine filters
To be honest - I found filtering a big hassle and haven't done it for a long timeHow many gallons will one filter through (of a rather low sediment recipe) in its life? Thank you!BEST ANSWER: Hi there, you can use them until you notice the performance diminishing. You need to back flush them after every use but they should be good for a good amount of batches. Cheers!I see that this unit comes with ball-lock connectors. Can I get it with the pin-lock connectors?BEST ANSWER: Sorry, we do not offer it that way. It could be easily changed to Pin-Lock connectors by the customer if needed. As long as the keg disconnects have the MFL-threading, they will work with this set-up. -Mike W, Midwest SuppliesWhat is the best way to prepare and sterilize new filters for the first use?BEST ANSWER: All they will need is a quick soak in sanitizer along with any other pieces that will touch the beer during transfers. You can push sanitizer through the whole system with CO2 to sanitize everything that beer touches, all at once. Cheers!I'm new to the Homebrew thing and would like to know if this filter system is used when you are filling your keg from the secondary ferment or or is it used in-line as your draw a pint to consume your beer? Also, can anyone tell me if it okay to filter prior to bottling your beer? THX. MikeBEST ANSWER: This filter is primarily used in line coming from a keg. I plan on putting my unfiltered beer into a keg, applying a small amount of psi, and using it to push the beer through the filter into another keg. You could also go into a bucket to then be transferred back into the keg once filtered.
You can siphon from a bucket into a keg, but this could take a while, and may not work for smaller micron filters.
It may be best to filter before kegging, as the beer can condition in a clean state.
You will not want to filter if bottling, unless you have a high micron (30+) as lower micron filters will remove the yeast, which the priming sugars react with to carbonate. You could carbonate with a keg, but you would need a beer gun to transfer the carbonated beer to a bottle before bottling.
