I typically swirl the wort chiller around when cooling down the beer. I use an autosiphon and bottle via the normal approach. It foams up a little when bottling, but I use oxy caps to get rid of that last little bit of oxygen.

I leave the last bit out, typically.

Try a few things mentioned on your next brew and let us know how it goes. We can troubleshoot all day but won't know until it's tested! Good luck!
