So just shake it up daily or so during the first week or so, I'm guessing(as a newbie) the lees and what not will just resettle?

I degas using a vacuum pump. I just transfer back and forth about 4-6 times during second racking, and 2 times during each subsequent rack. Seems to do the trick.

(With wines I tend to need to do wayyyy less, like twice total)
