I've been playing with yeast-carbing soda (as a side project while I wait for wine),, I've found that filtering it really kills the bubbles.

Your best bet is crash chill it open, then carfully pour it off into a new bottle (or smaller bottles) and keep them chilled (if carbination kicks off again you end up with new yeast sediment). It's not perfect, 'cause you loose some fiz while it's chilling, and some more when decanting, but filtering or syphoning are worse.

you could always use some regular brewers kit and rack it before bottling
i actually like the yeast, it seperates (pun) the OTC RB drinkers from the DIY drinkers...its like a toy surprise at the end of every bottle!
filtering too much yeast out will change the flavor and decrease the bottle carb (or increase the time to get decent pressure)
