You will want to remove the beer from above the trub, but you won't be actively filtering anything. Assuming you are using some sort of auto-siphon you will just rack the beer over and then stop...

I'm not entirely sure about the rest, but you may want to look into priming your bottles with additional juice rather than sugar, otherwise you may lose your gluten free status.
