Description

Wort separation is a very important step of the brewing process. Although lauter tun is the most common vessel design to achieve this goal, the mash filter is becoming a very viable alternative even for the smaller craft brewer. This technology has been proven to produce beers that are very similar to those produced using a lauter tun. This lecture covers in detail the design, operation, benefits, and drawbacks of the mash filter.
