This past Saturday I bottled my first batch. As I was taking the beer from the primary bucket and putting it in the bottling bucket I noticed some yeast particles and stuff floating around. I am wondering if I buy some screen from the hardware store ( you know that really small hole screen used on porches ) and sanitize it, if I could put it over my bucket and just pour the beer in to the bottle bucket and not worry about getting all that floating junk possibly in my bottles.. what do you guys think...??? Maybe they make something like that already and I just dont know about it... I dont know..

You want, nay must, transfer your beer quietly to avoid oxygenation.
Do not worry about the yeast, etc. It will settle out in the bottles.

what northernlad said.
not to mention, you gotta have the yeast in the bottles to consume the priming sugar so your beer will carbonate

Yup, there'll be yeasties at the bottom of the bottle when your done anyway, otherwise your carbonation failed.

Read that, then when you're done read it again. Get your process down, learn to appreciate good beer, love your yeasties, then tackle kegging and force carbing.

In order for you to get what the big guys do on such a small scale you would need to keg, transfer with CO2 and an inline filter to another keg, force carb, and then bottle from your keg. You'd also probably want to crash cool and use gelatin to drop out your yeast.

You need a scale. A small kitchen scale would work. I have a small one, and it measures up to a pound. I use it for hops, for priming sugar, honey, etc.
