I used to use an ice bath to chill down to 70F & call it good. Now I give it a little more time to chill down to 60-62F,then pour through the usual fine mesh strainer,dito with top off water,into primary. Stir roughly 5 minutes to aeraste even more,& get the wort/top off mixed well.
Then test & pitch. I've done it on the last 2 batches,& it seems a bit cleaner tasting. We'll know next month how good it is. This seems a bit like no chill. I wouldn't take the chance on infections by letting it sit myself.
