Details5.0 Micron Basic Disposable Coarse Nominal Filter for the BeerBrite System. This is the filter you want to use for your first pass.
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.

5.0 / 5.010 ReviewsUsed in my Midwest Beer Clarity Filter SystemI use this filter to remove Proteins and any teeny tiny bits of hops particles. These do a very good job, but are not perfect. Your beer may have a little haze or particulate matter. But the price is great._x000D_You can't reuse these, though you may try a second batch if its not too clogged up.January 19, 2013Works great and for a price you can't beatJust filtered my first batch though this filter and I can actually say everything worked great and how it should. I went through a sequence of 5.0 and then the 1.0 filter to make sure and get everything I could out . The beer went in hazy and came out perfectly clear amber so I couldn't have asked for better results. I have heard that the cheaper filters didn't always fit in the houses very well so before I put the filters in the housing I just picked up some rubber filter o-rings ands put one on top and on on bottom and it was a perfect fit! I do recommend only using the filters once though just to make sure and not cross contaminate your different batches of brew but with these prices thats not so bad.February 4, 2013Good price and performanceI got this along with my filtering system. I'm completely satisfied with it. The beer is noticeably clearer and less hazy. And it doesn't have the yeasty taste.March 23, 2013Finally!I was finally able to force filter my latest batch of beer (Liberty Cream Ale)! I didn't mind the slight yeast flavor in previous brews, but my wife did....and she loves it now. I use this 5 micron filter and then follow up with the .5 micron filter. Definitely a great addition to my homebrew supplies.May 22, 2013Clears my beer perfectlyThis is a very fine filter and nothing will get through it. I get extremely clear beer after using it. Just remember to use the coarse filter first, so this doesn't clog. Good price and performance.July 15, 2013Clarity Filter Course 5.0This filter works great for removing large chunks of hops and other residue pulled from the primary/secondary. Slight off flavor after filtration, but it dissipates after a couple days. I always back flush the filter after use, and I am able to re-use it for about five-six batches._x000D_September 23, 2013Clears beer wellThe system clears beer well, provided you have all the filters and don't try and skimp on them. That means use both filters, just once, and discard them. Hazy beer goes in, clear beer comes out.September 26, 2013Clear as glassI use Gelatin, and both filters and get absolutely clear wine. These are inexpensive and work as advertised.November 5, 2013Bear Clarity Filter systemGood price for these filters. They remove the proteins and other larger particles. The second filter takes out the rest, and gives some very clear beer. Just like in pictures.December 24, 2013
