Hand-made and built to order, Brewhaus' complete stainless steel filter system is a premium system designed to be used for stone coal activated carbon filtration. Our stainless steel filter system can be disassembled for easy cleaning and storage.

This type of filtration is recommended when the desired product is a high-proof, pure, neutral spirit such as vodka. We do not suggest activated carbon filtering when you want to capture character and flavor that developed during fermentation, such as whisky, rum, or fruit schnapps. 

Features: 

  • Tall, 37" filter column ensures sufficient contact time to filter effectively
  • Large capacity reservoir eliminates the need to constantly 'top-up'
  • 2" in diameter
  • More than 3' total height

Includes:

  • 7.5qt stainless steel reservoir
  • 2" diameter x 37" tall filter column to accept standard 1.7L packages of activated carbon
  • 2- Tri-Clamps
  • 2- Tri-Clamp Gaskets
  • End Cap with 1/2" fitting
  • 1/2" Chemical tolerant tubing
  • 2- Filter Papers

    Fantastic quality

    Posted by Jake on Nov 28th 2017

    Amazing quality, especially considering how low this is priced compared to the cost of the metal. I would love to see Brewhaus start carrying some sort of stand for this product though. Most users will need to build something to hold this in order to use it. I made mine out of scrap lumber and a bag of cement for counterweight.

    It works ok but...

    ...it's dreadfully slow. Finding a place and way to mount the filter is also difficult. I feel that a big improvement could be made to the system by replacing the lower cap/nipple fitting with a tri clover fitting on the nipple side to install a valve to essentially shut the filter 'on/off'.

    filter

    it would be nice if there were a picture or some written instructions on how to install the filter in the bottom I can't get it to drip at all with the filter paper recommended for it I have to cut coffee filters to fit and it drips fine some help in this area and I would give it 5 stars.
    edit rick contacted me and I am missing a screen I had bought mine before they started Including one and a set of assembly instructions too so change my rating to 5 star's.

    Buy it!

    Nice product, very well built and the results were stunning. It took a sugar wash that was well distilled but had a unpleasant flavor to a beautiful neutral spirit.

    All Good!

    High quality components in this filter system. Excellent service. Rick spent time with me and gave a lot of great advice and suggestions. Very knowledgeable and helpful to a newbie. As to the previous commenter that said he didn't know how to set it up, refer to the free "Activated Carbon Book" on this website. Good explanation including many pics for the how-to. Great experience in every way. Thank you.

    SS Filter System

    Posted by gary on Apr 20th 2012

    The pic is misleading, the bucket on top is now a funnel. I didn't know how to set it up to filter, so I just stuffed a few coffee filters into the bottom. After making a stand to hold everything up, I ran a 4 gallon batch through it with no problems. Only disadvantage is having to return to check it and top it up frequently. I finally figured out I can just turn the carboy full of swill upside down and set it in the funnel and let it flow at its own rate, just like a drinking fountain! Excellent!!

    good fix!!!

    After reading others reviews, it looks like Brewhaus has fixed the issues! The funnel shape leaves nothing left that needs to be manually "scraped" I am nothing but pleased with everything I have purchased from Brewhaus

    the problems with this is the flat bottom of the funnel has a ridge from welding tha leaves carbon and alcohol behind and it is very heavy, so stand would be nice. Any suggestions on filter paper placement?

    I like it

    Posted by Howard on Mar 11th 2010

    Once you get the technique down it works great. I ran 7 gallons through it in one continuos cycle and I got a great filter job on it. I don't like the filter papers that came with it so I cut up some Mr. Coffee filters and use 3 of those, works great.
