I was thinking about making one of these: http://billybrew.com/hop-filter-build
and using it to transfer from my brew kettle to my bottling bucket and then to my carboy. Haven't tried it yet, but I think it would work well, plus it would give me 2 chances to arerate the wort

Most effective way to remove trub is a settling tank. Just pour the wort into a plastic bucket with spigot and wait a half hour. The spigot is typically placed to leave about 0.5 gal behind, which is pretty darn close for many beers. Easy to tilt the bucket to get every last bit of crystal-clear wort and no trub or hops. Simply close the spigot when you see cloudy muck coming out the hose.

Works quite well, but I'm not going to argue it improves the beer. I have no idea.

I just took a gravity reading on a basic bitter I made last week and found that, at this point, it is the clearest beer I've made to date. I chilled the wort to pitching temp and let it set for 10-15 minutes. Then siphoned the beer off the trub into the fermenter bucket.

I'm thinking this is also why the technique of whirlpooling then draining off through a ball valve in the side of the boil kettle works so well. I think my old kitchen strainer has just been retired!
