Yes. I normally leave the bucket/carboy up in the elevated position for a couple hours before racking to the keg or bottling bucket.

I would definitely let it settle. Should only take a few hours.

I would but it may not settle, although it probably wont end up in your bottleing bucket.You could also try cold crashing it for a day if you are really concerned. Make a note next time to not get that stirred up in there, try to put it where you bottle ahead of time. That crap can be annoying sometimes.

Oh dryhopping? i did the same thing with pellots i use a small hop bag from now on as i use a filter over the auto siphon which bubbled the crap out of it siphoning it but they still turned out great despite my worries.Dont filter most of it should not be a problem and would settle anyway.

Yep when dry hopping I put a hop bag over the output end of my autosiphon to keep the hops out of my keg/bottling bucket.

I always use hop/grain sacks for all hops,whole leaf or pellets. Less mess that way. I have a brew stand where my primary stays put. I put the bottling bucket on the floor,& use tubing on the spigot to mix into priming solution in the bottling bucket. Nice clear beer that way.

I does not take very long at all once everything is clean and sanitized. I usually do it while I am brewing so I am guessing about 1/2 hour. It is the cleaning and sanitizing that takes time.

Just curious, does the autosiphon get clogged with hops when the output end is covered with a hop bag?
