5.0 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.

Its effective at removing haze and big particles. This is a good price and worth it to me for the performance I get.
Good 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.
I use Gelatin, and both filters and get absolutely clear wine. These are inexpensive and work as advertised.
The 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.
This 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_
