To get the most beer out of the fermentor it works to tilt the fermentor with a piece of 2 x 4 the day before.
Great suggestions which I will implement. I think my mistake was when I was transferring to the bucket I rested the siphon right at the bottom, only pulling it away from the trub as it got near the bottom of the batch. (And I really need to get myself one of those spigot buckets.) Thanks!
