i bottle most of my lighter beers straight from the bucket and i usually always ferment in bottling buckets...makes for such an easy bottling day. I also tape off and fill the spigot with sanitizer as well as removing the valve after each batch. Why i dont use it for larger beers i dont know but ive never had a problem doing it this way
EDIT: To the OP, in time when primed for carb and chilled for serving your trub/yeast will 95% of the time drop to the bottom of the bottle...Just leave the last 1/4 in the bottle when pouring a pint. First couple of batches i did had ATLEAST 1/4 of trub in the bottles. In time youll learn what does and does not work. Good luck!
