When you are racking to the bottling bucket you will be able to hold the siphon just above the trub layer so no sediment is transferred.
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!
