First time Star San user. Had a busy day. Bottled and kegged three batches. Love the Star San. The last thing to do is move a batch from primary to secondary that I just cleaned with the Star San. The bubbles won't leave the carboy. Just rack on top of them?

You have way too much in there. You only need about a quart and a rubber stopper to coat the inside well. Dump it back in the bucket and 60 seconds later, you can rack on it.
