Details1.0 Micron Basic Disposable Coarse Nominal Filter for the BeerBrite System. This filter is to be used after the 5.0 micron filter, and this item will filter out up to 80 - 90% of the fine sediment in your beer.
Absolute vs. Nominal filters
Nominal filters refer to the fact that the micron size is loosely rated, so it is at or around the listed size. These are lower cost filters that will work just fine, they are just not as precise as the absolute filters. Absolute filters give you absolute control over the level of filtration your beers go through, they are rated and precise to the degree they are listed, and therefore they are more expensive. For everyday brewing, nominal disposable filters will do the trick. But if you are competitive and looking for a winning edge, a professional precise filtration is what you will want.
These filters are constructed of FDA approved polypropylene spun fiber. The mid-grade and pro-grade filters can be sanitized with bleach at a 0.5% concentration for 15-30 minutes then rinsed thoroughly, provided they are cleaned properly with a back flush with water after each use. The pro-grade filters are auto-clavable for repeated use or in home use, 10-30 minutes in a pressure cooker will sanitize. The manufacturer recommends 10 hours of total sanitizing in the filters lifetime, so with proper use, cleaning and storage the pro-grade filters will be your better investment.

This coupled with the five micron filter do a thorough job.February 7, 2014Filters wellNothing gets past these. I use the other filter to remove the big stuff, otherwise this would immediately clog. The system really works and I have very clear beer and wine without having to use fining agents.December 29, 2013Works great and inexpensive tooThese filters work and are inexpensive and for the money one of the best complete filtering systems available.November 16, 2013EconomicalThis is a good system for filtering beer. I use it every time for added clarity. You need to have a keg system to use this filter though._x000D_October 6, 2013Reduce yeast going to your kegThis filter works great in the midwest supply clarity filter. After using the 5.0 micron to filter major chunks, I use this one to filter out additional yeast for beers I want to be super clean.September 23, 2013Clears my beer wellIt does a great job clearing up my beer. My beer really looks a lot better since getting this filter kit. I use this filter first to remove the larger particles and the .5 micron afterwards.July 16, 2013Start with 5After a long brew day I thought I would filter a couple of already kegged beers and I started with this filter, by accident, instead of the 5. It worked fine, however I pretty much wasted the filter as the oatmeal stout did not need to be filtered to a 1. The product did a great job and I look forward to using this on a super hoped rye and watch it get cleaned up.May 18, 2013Works GreatI purchased the Midwest beer clarity filter kit and it came with this 1.0 polishing filter and a .5 filter. After using the kit I was very happy with the clarity of my beer. I have now purchased three sets of both of these filters. They work great and are inexpensive. I have not tried to reuse them yet but the other reviewer of this product states he cleans and stores them in grain alcohol. I guess I will try that but they are cheap enough to just throw away.April 3, 2013Works GreatThis is a great option for filtering beer when kegging. You need to have a keg system to use this filter but it is definitely worth the effort.April 2, 2013perfect for the priceUse this filter ever time right before i keg my beer It gets rid of all the yeast taste and clears the beer pretty good_x000D__x000D_I recommend using a new one for each beer type although i store mine in some grain alcohol for reuse _x000D__x000D_buy a fewJanuary 19, 2013
