This is the way to go. I use flat filters right in the coffee urn and bottle straight from the tap. I clip the filters to the urn using spring hand clamps. I never turn the urn on, the hot syrup needs no extra heat as the urn capably holds all the heat in. I usually put a small plate or something over the top of everything to help hold in heat while bottling, but if the syrup flows well I probably don't even need that as the filters act as a lid to the filtered syrup below. I picked up my urn for $5.99 at the good will.
