Separating funnel!! fuck yeah I wish I could get one. Actually I get a stolen one once but it broke before I used it :(
Are you planning to use to drain off sediment? I'd like to see how that goes.
The finest filtering is achieved when the sediment layer becomes the filter, on top of the cloth. For this, the whole amount to be filtered goes in the filter (in my case, cloth on a strainer) and is left to settle. The first liquid to come through the cloth has particles in it but once the sediment layer has settled on the cloth it will come through clear. The whole thing must be left undisturbed and totally still until it is finished.
Edit: I never worked with powdered cactus so your particulate matter might be different to what I had.
