Filtration

I diddint see a thread right off on filtration, but I thought i'd ask; does anyone filter their final product? I was watching a guy who ran his cider from carboy to keg to filter to keg. It seemed to remove quite a bit of sediment. He was saying it removed much of the (dead yeast). From what I gather, secondary fermentation in a smaller carboy is also done to clean up the beer.

The question is: Skip secondary fermentation, and just filter the final beer instead?

I have found best results by leaving my beer in the primary for 3-4 weeks. I generally give it a thorough shake after 10-12 days so as to put all of the original trub into suspension again. By the time this has fallen out again the beer is generally pretty clear.

Before I keg my beer I try to move it to the elevated position at least four days prior so as everything can be settled. When I rack it off of the trub I also tend to leave a little more than necessary so as to not pick up sediment.

Disclaimer: This has been my personal experience based on my experience brewing on my own and with other (read that - good ) brewers. Your mileage may vary; but it still makes beer.
