I haven't used the method you described, mainly due to the concern of adding oxygen to the brew before it is bottled. My understanding is the stirring would cause oxygen which would taint the beer. Sorry, if my inexperience shows here....

It sounds like that is not a concern.....Am I understanding this correctly?
I try to keep the sugar water from splashing as I add it and I stir slowly so I'm just mixing and not adding oxygen. Every so often I forget this step and those batches usually have at least one bottle overcarbonated to the point where they want to give either a big head or want to foam out of the bottle.

I had the same issue, and was thinking the racking was taking forever, so I got a 1/2" racking cane and both issues were resolved. Without stirring, all batches were consistant after the switch. Also the cap on the bottom is taller, I get more beer out without sediment
