Micron Level Filter for Gin

edited August 2019 in General


For those of you using a vacuum filler for bottling (like the Enolmaster) what micron level filter are you using at the final stage before the liquid reaches the vacuum filler?

    Think about what you might be filtering from finished gin.

    You shouldn't have any real particulate that you need to worry about, aside from a small amount of potential dust or otherwise that may have drifted in. Having been distilled - there shouldn't be much there other than what you let get in.

    You can probably get by just fine with something like 1 micron. No need to go absurdly tight, because it's not likely there is much particulate smaller than that.

    Even going as low as 0.2 micron, there will be zero flavor impacts.

  • I use 1 micron with the enolmatic.

  • Cheers.

    Single or dual filter (i.e. different micron levels)?

    I'm planning on using a single filter.

    @Grim - correct, this is to just catch any foreign particles. Must not change the character of the liquid.

  • Yep - filtering gin, even a 0.1 micron would probably last damn near forever.

  • I use a 1 micron filter on my Enolmatic
