G'day gang, Pretty new to brewing (second batch on the ferment now). Just wondering if it would be ok to pass the fermented beer through filter paper before bottling? I've got filter paper like the ones used in coffee percolator. Cheers!
Yes, that's fine. You can filter through cheese cloth, for example. Coffee filter should work, too, but may be slower. Just try to minimize the contact with oxygen, to avoid off flavors --- so avoid splashing around.
When your beer is already fermented, its alcohol and the hops will protect it from infections.
