Re: [new_distillers] Filtering issues...
I ran into similar problems carbon filtering. What I did was cram cheap unscented toilet paper into the end of my filter. Greatly slowed the process down but worked for me. I only carbon filter nuetral. For my Whiskey / Bourbon I age on chips in 1 gal glass juggs. I just pour off the top thru a coffee filter and haven't had any problems there. I do rinse my chips in water before I use them.

I have, over time, made several sucessful batches, most of them whiskey aged in oak barrels. Taste is great, but I am having problems with sediment in my finished product. I run through a fine screen, and run again through 2 coffee filters, sometimes up to three times. The finished result has fine sediment that settles after a few days. I have the same problem after I polish a neutral with carbon. What are you others having sucess with in your filtering? Could it just be as simple as trying a different brand of filter???
