How did the process go? Any advice?
TIA
OK, I changed my mind, again.....  ;D

Today ran it through a 25 micron and 5 micron filter in series...... It got the big chunks out and most of the haze, although not all. After a few hours in the fridge It looks presentable to me, and again, it's a party not a competition. And, it tastes absolutely wonderful, I am pleased.

Euge, I like the sales pitch..... but mine is:

It's like bread, fresh out of the oven. Nothing is better!
Brew on

The process went well. and it's really easy to set up..... The only thing I need to do is order some 5 and .5 micron filters, and then it takes everything out. You rack into a keg, close it up, hook up the filter and run it through the filter into a second, open, keg.

Of course, the REAL solution is to get busy brewing and have enough kegs in stock that they can condition properly and I still have enough for house consumption and the parties.....

But, in a pinch the filtering works.

OK, here's the evidence
Did you keep the filters upside down for a purpose?

Beer not carbonated, don't think that would be good.

Right side up to begin (there's a bleed valve on top to fill them), upside down to finish and try and not have the two containers full of waste.
