Default What is the best way to harvest yeast from a conical?

I am still new to using a conical fermentor. On my 2nd batch now. I will racking my beer to bottle come sunday and was wondering if I could reuse the yeast at the bottom of the conical. Is it best to dump the yeast into a sterilized container and then dump back in with the new wort or leave in the conical and dump wort on top. Any help would be great. Thanks

I have no experience with conicals, but any normal primary you can just rack the wort back onto a yeast cake from a previous brew and have good results.

Rack off the amount of yeast you need into a sanitized container and use that at brewing.

Crop and pitch. Do a cell count if you like.
