I have reached a crossroads, since I have gout, the gout seems to flair up whenever I drink homebrew. I tried fining my beer using gelatine, with no success (the beer drops crystal clear put still there is enough yeast to cause me pain). I am told that I can use a 1 micron filter to filter the yeast out of the beer thereby removing the yeast thereby removing the purine. However I fear that dead and decomposing yeast whose cell walls have burst will be small enough to leak through even a 1 micron filter. I seem to be able to drink Grappa, and some whiskey with no ill effects. I also seem to tolerate small amounts of craft beer, however even half a glass of homebrew will put me in agony for days. Has anyone had the same gout problem and did filtering solve the problem? I am considering giving up brewing and sticking to spirits.
