Filters? Carbonation?

1. Filters?  We don’t need no stinking filters!  That’s right, we don’t filter our ales.  We don’t pasteurize either.  You will find some sediment at the bottom of the Denim-Hosen.  That is from the wheat that we use in our recipe.  It’s supposed to be there.  As with a Hefeweizen (the big daddy of wheat beers), we invite you to swirl the bottle and enjoy the cloud.  If you prefer clear beer, then just leave it behind.

2.  Carbonation.  Most beer/ale available is carbonated to between 2.4 and 3.0 volumes.  What does that mean?  It means that if you could separate/remove/capture all of the Carbon Dioxide in the container, you would get a volume of CO2 equal to 2.4 to 3.0 times the volume of the beer/ale.  Some are more carbonated because the intent is for the carbonation to lend “bite” to the way the beer feels in your mouth.  Some are lightly carbonated so that the beer feels “smoother” in your mouth.
