Default how to pour?

Ok, this is a stupid question, but is perplexing me.

I've been bottling more in large bottles - 22 - 25 oz, including champagne bottles.

But, my glasses are 12 oz, and so, I pour 1 beer, set down the bottle, and pour another, either right then, or later. When the bottle gets set down, the yeast mixes in, and beer #2 is cloudy.

How the heck do I avoid this? I'm assuming either get much larger glasses, or keep the bottle tipped and pour the second one right away!

Or you could use smaller bottles. Or start kegging.

Pour it into a pitcher, and then serve the beer out of a pitcher?

I usually take two glasses and do a continous pour between the two, stopping right before the yeast as normal.

use a more flocculant yeast- and make sure you store the beer cold at least overnight, if not for a day or two, to give the yeast time to really stick to the bottom

certain yeasts, like weizen and saison, just arent gonna cooperate, though
