Filter/Straining Help

Postby vossy » Fri Aug 30, 2019 7:23 am

Hello Legends,
Made an awesome spiced rum flavour, used grated ginger among other things problem is I can filter it properly.
I ran it through a strainer, than stocking got heaps out, but I usually do a final strain through a coffee filter, but just clogs up.
Anyone got an other ideas on something I can use?

For an intermediate you can try a cotton ball stuffed in a funnel before you try the coffee filter.

If you put it in the fridge do the solids settle to the bottom? May be able to take the clearer liquid off the top and filter that, might have a little waste tho :handgestures-thumbupleft:
