Default Transfering wort to fermenter

How do Yal transfer your wort into the fermenter. I put it through strainers in all but I brew in a 7.5 gallon pot w 5 gallons of wort. Whenever I pour it into my fermenting bucket beer gets everywhere

I use the Venturi effect in my siphon to my fermentor. It aerated and transfers. Its in my signature.

I used to pour through a large funnel, occasionally with a strainer in the funnel, into a carboy.

Can't you just start your pour a little slower? You could also siphon to your bucket and avoid lifting/splashing.

You're either pouring too fast,or not tipping the BK enough to get an even flow straight into the funnel,strainer,etc. Since I have plastic FV's,I place a large fine mesh strainer ofer the top of the fermenter & pour in a circular pattern. This has the effect of making the wort come out the bottom of the strainer like rain,improving aeration a bit. Dito with top off water.
