    Hey guys, I racked my imperial stout I to an alligator charred whiskey barrel, I. Concerned that when I eventually keg this beer that there will be charcoal particles floating in the beer, can I filter it before kegging or add something to remove those little tiny sand size floating particles. I ask this because when I dumped out the whiskey that was in it for sanitizing it had a decent amount of those sand sized char particles in it.

    You could put a fine mash cloth over the outlet of your transfer hose works good for trub and hop particles.
