If you get to much of it into the bottle, you'll get a somewhat yeasty taste, and that's pretty much it.

But, you do eat bread? There's yeast in bread too, even though it's pretty dead by the time it leaves the oven. Don't worry, we've been eating yeast for as long as we've been eating food.

Besides, you need some of those little buddies to get some bubbles unless you force carbonation with CO2.

I figured it was fine, just wondering if it was cool with you guys. I never thought I was putting yeast into my body every time I had a beer.

Someone a while back posted some pretty cool pics of yeast under a microscope.

I want to make my wort In a 5.2 gallon pot and add water to make 2 three gallon carboys and I was going to filter off the primary straight to bottling, will that make it hard to bottle, or will the yeast survive the filter?
The health foods stores here sell bottles of 'brewers yeast". You'll be getting it for free.

I actually forgot to take I to account that I need some trub (yeast) for bottle carbonation, so maybe there's a litre I should bring from the fermentor there.
There will be plenty of yeast suspended in your beer to achieve carbonation unless you let the beer sit in the fermenter for many months. Rack it off the trub as cleanly as you can.
