"If a filter is employed, ... in order to make a clear beer brighter, if it becomes an indispensable piece of equipment in every brewery, ..., this would be quite regrettable and should be regarded as a step backward." So much for the rigid opinion expressed by Thausing in 1888. There has been a lot of water under the bridge since then, and nowadays filtration is understood as an integral part of the process of beer production. MEBAK® has also tasked itself with publishing works on this important topic, taking the first step by issuing the MEBAK® Filtration Guideline (Depth Filtration) in 2017. Building upon this, the working group headed by Dr. Stefan Kreisz of Erdinger Weißbräu in Erding, Germany, has now also prepared a guideline on membrane filtration. In addition to general technical data, this guideline also includes information on evaluating the quality of both unfiltered and filtered media as well as procedures and formulae for assessing the process.
