Default From Fermenter to bottle bucket

How long do you let it settle in the bottling bucket after you pour the five gallons from the fermenting bucket?

Ive only been doing this a few months but I can certainly say...DO NOT POUR.
use a racking cane and tubing.

Let's assume he meant siphon...how long?? I have my first 5 gallon bottling approaching.

I assumed id siphon it over and just bottle immediately. I have a lid and thought I might let it settle for a few hours, even entertained thoughts of a 24 hour cold crash...

+1 Do not pour. The siphon hose needs to be long enough to lay in the bottom of the bottling bucket so that there is no splashing.

+1 to not pouring. Once in the bucket I get the bottles and begin filling. No need to wait for anything.

The only thing you should be waiting for is the beer in primary to settle out clear or slightly misty. Then rack to the bottling bucket & prime. If you're carefull,you get little or no sediment in the bottling bucket. I do & get clear beer.

the beer stays in the bottling bucket for about 60 seconds (maybe a little longer if i'm tasting) before it starts going into the bottles.

there is no reason to leave anything in the bucket at all.

ps... siphon into the bucket, don't pour

I am obviously really new at this. Any particular way to siphon? What is racking? When siphoning, do you deep it off the bottom to avoid sediment?
Thanks for taking the time to help me.

racking is just our word for siphoning to another vessel

a racking cane with tip will help to keep from siphoning sediment from the fermenter. racking cane is a hard plastic tube with a curve at one end and a tip on the other, which helps from racking sediment to your bottling bucket. also, start the siphoning from just under the surface and lower it to keep it under the surface.

different ways to start the siphon:

  • buy an auto-siphon (preferred method)
  • fill the tubing with water, keep one end plugged until you have the racking cane in the beer and then unplug
  • use your mouth (not recommended, risk of infection. mouth full of warm, flat beer, not always a bad thing)
  • fly-guy's t-siphon

If you use an auto siphon,you don't need to suck on it like when siphoning gas. You pump the curved part to start the siphon. I have spigots on both my fermenters to negate using siphons that keep wanting to add streams of bubbles. And the racking tube should curve around the bottom of the bottling bucket about half way to induce a swirl that helps mix the priming solution with the beer.
