   Most Commonly Asked Filtration Question Series     The risks of not using vent filters on holding and mixing tanks are real. And costly. Unfortunately, we usually hear from a company after they've experienced serious issues because they did not install vent filters. So, this article is written for those not yet using vent filters on their tanks. It will address the most common issues/questions we're asked on this topic with the hope of sparing you a process headache you don't need.

That is why beer has been a safe drinking alternative for so many centuries. However, there are microorganisms that can survive and even thrive in beer and spoil the flavor and aroma of any good brew.
