It won't bother the yeast. I would just rack it to the bucket and let it set for maybe 30 min then bottle. Only reason I say that cheese cloth is a rather poor filter if you use pellets.

I use a $3.99 reusable coffee filter that can be bought iin any grocery store. To avoid
unwanted aeration, set it in the bottom of your bottling bucket until you get the flow
going and then it unfortunately turns into a two-handed operation as the bucket level rises, but the filter's nice stiff round shape makes it pretty easy to grip and work with
in general. They seem to be easy to sanitize as well.

This is actually sold by Northern Brewer as a diffuser for the end of the sparge hose. (to keep the sparge water from channeling through the grain bed in the mash tun).

I agree that many items can be used in ways never intended by the manufacturer.

I've had good results with a bazooka screen wrapped with cheese cloth and my siphon tube inside the screen.

Cheers for the tips - coffee filter sounds like a great idea.
