I do not see how adding a filter would cause oxidation. The only thing i see with a filter like this would possibly be contamination. I imagine i will clean and sanitize it well each time.
Im thinking it'll strain out all but little bits of yeast.
Anyone use one of these before?http://www.homebrewing.org/14-b-Sanitary-in-line-Filter_p_3594.html
You can't filter the yeast out of your beer then bottle carb. Besides that looks like an air filter, I don't see you having success pushing your beer through that with gravity. True filtering systems are done with CO2 and kegging, like this system
. If you're talking about straining out dry hops then just put the nylon bag over the tip of your racking cane as you mentioned. Submerged in the beer that shouldn't oxidize it, but pouring it through a strainer on the way to the bottling bucket will. I don't personally find the need to strain my dry hops, they settle out after conditioning cold.
