Asbestos Pulp Filter

Post by RCLy » Sat, 26 Sep 1998 04:00:00



I just read "Progressive Winemaking" by Acton & Duncan.  They describe a
homemade wine filter which uses asbestos pulp fiber as the filter medium.  I
don't think that asbestos is practical these days.  I don't want to create a
toxic wasteland in my ba***t.

Is there another product or filter medium that I can use in place of the
asbestos?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Check with your local wine supplier for  filter pads of various porosity (even
charcoal) that are E-friendly and easy to use. Where do you get your mother for
vinegar?

I had trouble finding the vinegar mother until someone on this list suggested
that I simply buy a bottle of live unpasteurized vinegar from a natural food
store.  I cost me $1.59 and worked great!
