I often update old posts with new and better information once available. It's really my fancy online notebook about info I'm collecting (bar a few exceptions).

It's quite handy for me and for my friends to look up things there.

And indeed, it's about oxygen when filtering. I did a run with a keg gone wrong and measured the o2 intake at 2.3 mgl. That's enough to send the best beer to oblivion.

However, I am aware of better procedures nowadays and they make a lot of sense (mainly because for a full year I am so o2 aware now). I'll give it a go but one will only hear about it once it's done within a reasonable ballpark.

As far as your woes are concerned it depends how much time you really want to invest in it. Reading Kunze over and over certainly sheds a light on many things. Somehow all our brewing just became better us having a copy of this book.

I'd hang in there. Eventually these things just sort themselves out as one progresses and becomes more in tune with the matter.

You could just run a SMB sanitizer solution. Wine makers use it to flush their filters all the time.
