    The only way to completely eliminate the sediment at the bottom of a bottle would be to wait for your beer to ferment fully, transfer to a secondary fermentor and let it sit for a couple of weeks to allow any remaining yeast and stuff to settle out, then keg and force carbonate it.

    After that, chill to as close to freezing as you can get it, and use a counter-pressure filler to fill your bottles. Voila! Carbonated beer in bottles, no sediment.

    you can’t. you let it settle for a few weeks (store upright). put it in your fridge upright. then gently remove the cap and slowly slowly pour the beer in a glass and leave the sediment in the bottom. rinse out the bottle thoroughly then drink the beer.

    You’d have to filter it before bottling to get rid of it completely. But the best answer is to just not poor the entire beer (leave the sediment at the bottom).

    Also, the use of a secondary fermenter will greatly reduce the amount of sediment.

    It is impossible.

    I usually drink it , that gets rid of it. It is rich in B vitamins.

    My brew tank has a spigot about a 1/2 inch above bottom. When I bottle, the yeasts(sediments) don’t get poured.

    Ya, you really need not worry about it. The effort to not have sediment at the bottom would far outweigh the benefit. You’d have to add a chemical to kill all remaining yeast, and then let the beer settle. Then you’d have to send the beer through a micro filter (expensive). Then you’d have to artificially infuse the beer with carbon dioxide as you bottled it (special machine, very expensive). It’s not worth it if you ask me, but if it’s that important to you, go for it.

    different stages of filtering. first chese cloth, which can be purchased in most cooking stores, then coffee filters.
