I think bottling buckets just expose the beer to infection and oxygen and are not worth the trouble.
I could not agree more. It is surprising how easy it is to lightly stir the priming solution without disturbing the trub.
I usually leave my beer in the primary for three weeks and the trub is VERY settled.
I strongly urge people to at least try it once
