All you do is sanitize your autosiphon or racking cane, and start the siphon in the middle of the fermenter. Lower the racking cane as the level of the beer drops. It's super easy and no problem at all.
it's as easy as that..... and please, please, don't rock, shake, agitate, etc. the fermenter to drop the hops. it'll drop 'em, sometimes
, but it'll also introduce o2, all
the time. o2 after fermentation can accelerate the staling of beer. not good.
