I just capped 4 bottles of beer that I rand through a course grade disc filter. Did any yeast make it through?

If not, when I am ready to rack another beer could I just pour a couple ml of sediment into each bottle then cap again?

I take it, not many have used a filter before.

If the filter is 1 micron absolute or courser you will be ok, enough yeasties will have made it through.

(from memory 0.35micron nominal is also ok)

At least not this type of filter. You'll need to elaborate on the specifics to garner more responses.

Course filter is about as accurate as saying you mashed in with hot water, we need more details.

We use 0.2 micron filters at work to remove all yeast.

Should be plenty with that filter.
Trust you've used before, otherwise i hope you ran plenty of water through it before the beer, otherwise your beer will taste like wet cardboard.
That style of filter is pretty hopeless for beer filtering, as it clogs up quickly & the pads are expensive (well in Aus anyway).

I will able to tell everybody in a week when I test a bottle.
