An inline sanitary filter that filters down to .027 micron with a 99.99% efficiency. Use it anywhere you need to keep something sanitary. Both 1/4" and 3/8" tubing will attach and it will snugly fit in any standard stopper as well. Check out this list of suggested uses:
Airlock: The most common use might be as an airlock on any kind of fermenter. Unlike other small sanitary filters, this unit fits perfectly into a stopper. Works great for conical fermenters, like the Fermentap and our own Stainless Conicals, where displacement air is taken in when samples are taken or trub is dumped. Using the sanitary filter as airlock also eliminates the concern of drawing air back in as hot liquid cools and contracts in a fermenter. Not appropriate for long term storage of beer or wine as it is not an oxygen barrier.Inline Aeration/Oxygenation Filter: With an oxygenation or aeration sytem, it will filter contaminants out of oxygen or air. It is connected inline between pump/O2 tank and s/s diffusion stone.Hand Pumps: Some breweries use this filter with the breweries hand pump system. Air going back into the cask is sanitized through this filter. This has extended shelf life of Real Ales by up to 2 weeks!
CO2 Filtration: Used inline with your CO2 Kegging setup, this piece can be used to filter out any potential contaminants from your CO2 Tank.
Storage: Store in Ziplock bag in a dry place with minimal moisture exposure. Can last up to 1 year. Discard if there are any signs of discoloration.About the inline filters: There are two sides to the filter - an "in" and an "out". The direction you use doesn't matter, however, you want to take note of which way you first push air through it and always keep it that way. There is an arrow on the edge of the filter housing that we use to keep the air flow going one direction when using it. The filter should never get wet, so don't try and sanitize it by dunking it in sanitizer. If you want to clean the outside of it, use Alpet D2. To store the filter, use a little tinfoil on the "In" of the filter and store in a zip-lock bag.
This product qualifies as a HEPA filter under US government standards.
Every employee, along with the owner especially, is not only knowledgeable but kind and helpful. I am a total amateur and this company made me feel welcome and excited to get back home and start brewing.
I've lived and brewed in many cities across the country, and Perfect Brewing has the best inventory and most knowledgeable and helpful people ever!
I have been ordering their kits for brewing beer since I started back in March 2020. I have never had a bad tasting kit. They have even given suggestions and been extremely helpful. I highly recommend them for any of your brewing or wine-making needs. Keep up the great work.

Perfect Brewing Supply was founded many moons ago in a warehouse not so far away, providing equipment and ingredients by mail only. Shortly after, a shop was set up in Libertyville with a storefront for all to visit and talk to fellow homebrewers about their craft. Perfect Brewing Supply has added and adapted over the years, but one thing still remains the same: our commitment to being a great resource for knowledge, equipment, and ingredients for all your fermentation dreams and goals.
We have added many new things to our beer supply over the years. Things such as wine, cheese, soda, cider, coffee, and almost anything fermentable. We started offering many new services to the homebrew world. We added many shiny pieces of equipment available to our customers to rent. Some of these items include a canner (canned home brew?!), crusher / destemmer (for wine), pressing equipment for your wine or other fruits. We even added a space that you can ferment and lager your beer here at the shop in a temperature controlled environment.
Many of our customers and previous employees have gone on to start their own brewery or work for one. Together we can help you with your dream of taking your hobby to the next level. Many of our employees have completed a course at the prestigious Siebel Institute here in Chicago. With that we have the background to answer all of your fermentation questions.
It all starts with #greatfriendsbringhomebrew
