Hi All,
Thanks for looking in. I used a 30 micron inline filter to rid my brew of the debris from Cocoa Nibs... I was wondering if that was large enough to allow my yeast to get through for priming? IT seemed to do a fine job of chasing the debris out but was considering the priming end of it? Anyone have experience on this?
Thanks in advance.

Apparently yeast cell diameter is generally in the 3-4µm range but can be as large as 40µm.
So, the odds favor the yeast passing through your 30µm screen, but it's not guaranteed.
Tip: fill a 12 ounce soft drink bottle with the primed beer and cap it tight.
When it gets too hard to squeeze the beer is carbed and you'll know there was plenty of yeast in the beer...

Cheers!
