I fill my CLEAN 6.5gal carboy with a mixture of c-brite & hot water, let sit to sanitize.
This then drains via auto-siphon into the bottling bucket sanitizing all of my small items, (funnel, strainer, spoon, airlocks, bungs, etc).
That drains into my small 5gal carboy sanitizing that.
Airlocks go in place to preserve sanitation until needed.
Brew, add wort to 6.5gal carboy, pitch, ferment, xfer to pre-sanitized secondary, etc...
