A couple of weeks ago I read one of these threads and decided to give fermenting peppers a shot.
I used some lids that I already had from some mycology experiments with .22 micron filters on them.
My thought process at the time was that the CO2 would push the air out.
Now I am second guessing myself.

Any thoughts?

0.22 micron is very very fine. Less than 1 is typically considered "sterile" as it won't pass yeast. Most brewers who filter use 5 micron.

Anyway, it's overkill, but unless it gets clogged it will allow gas to escape, which is the goal (and to keep out those pesky fruit flies).

Thanks guys.
Always nice to have someone who has actually done it to give this kind of thing a second look.
