For what it is worth, I decided to just buy another fermentation pail to use as a bottling bucket. My LHBS was out of bottling buckets, and I figured I might be able to use a second fermenter, or perhaps use it as a secondary for my next batch *shrug*. I just bottled today, and I am pleased as punch to have racked it to the 2nd bucket first to mix the priming sugar. No need to worry about dumping un-sanitized sugar into each bottle, and could concentrate on filling the bottles instead of avoiding setiment from the primary. Also gave me a good spot to store the sanitizer while prepping.
