Filtering Alcohol

Filtering your alcohol wash is a great way to improve the flavour and save time waiting for it to age.

Wine is not the only alcohol that benefits from being filtered. Residual yeasts in alcohol washes can impact the flavour of your final product. Waiting for your wash to clear can take several days to weeks even when using products like Kieselsol and Chitosan and it never gets to quite the same purity as it would with filtering.

Using a carbon filtering system like the Filter Snake, the Mini jet, Super Jet, or Semi-Industrial Filter Machine with carbon filter pads, carbon Cristal Brite pads, or the EZ Filter System can greatly enhance the clarity and neutral flavour of your wash while saving you time.

Products are varied by ease of use, time, and customer need. If only filtering a small amount of wash at a time, gravity fed systems such as the Filter Snake and Cristal Brite or more convenient self contained EZ Filter System are good cost-effective options. If filtering a large amount of wash at a time, or several batches, a motorized filtration system like the Buono Vino jet series and semi-industrial filter machine will pay off when fitted with carbon pads. These machines are able to empty and effectively filter 23Ls in minutes and have the capacity to filter multiple batches on one set of pads.
