Will the KLR Filter remove very fine sediment and silt?

Nope. And here’s why.

The KLR Filter is designed to remove particles down to 1 micron from home brews. Most yeast cells are 1 to 2 microns in thickness, and larger particles are easily filtered using the KLR Filter system.

Finer sediment or silty residue is smaller than 1 micron. Do not let the siphon tube suck it into the KLR filter and into your carboy or bottles. Let it stay behind, as undisturbed as possible, when racking or bottling your home brew.

The only way to remove this type of ultra-fine residue is with a vacuum or pressurized system with a filter opening of less than 1 micron. These types of filters often strip color and flavors out of your home brew. I simply do not use them. My home brews have a rich, full bodied flavor and vibrant color as a result. This includes wine and beer.
