On one hand, $5 for a filter isn't that much for piece of mind, but on the other hand if it's not necessary I'll save my money for the next trip to the bar.
What say ye?
Can anyone say overkill! No i'm just kidding. It's just not necessary to put an inline filter on an O2 system. Humans can't even survive in pure oxygen. There is such a thing as oxygen narcosis and all living things including baddies can't survive in a pure single-species gaseous environment.
P.S. Where you at in Chicago? I'm brewing up in the Ravenswood neighborhood, but I'd love to meet another fellow homebrewer.
