I get all but about 2 cups of liquid above the trub. I don't use the spigot because I'm never sure I get it clean enough.. but I do use it for gravity tests. Plus, when I rack to the bottling bucket.. I don't like to have trub transfer.. but, that's just me.
My concern is that the handle on the 3.2 is on top where its on the sides of the bigger fermenters:
Makes it looks like it would be difficult to move for cold crashing with the airlock on. Morebeer responded that it would leave roughly a quart behind when racking from the spigot - that part is perfect for me, just not sure if there .45 gallons is sufficient headspace for 2.75 gallons...might just go with 5g better bottles.
