I have an old Fermentasaurus that I am using for the first time. I was wondering if anyone had a "best practice" for racking fermented and dry hopped (IPA) into a cornelius keg. The catch bottle that comes with it is not big enough for all the yeast residue so I emptied it once, cleaned and sanitized it, purged it with CO2 and reattached it and am waiting for the rest of the yeast to drop into it. Seems like a lot of hassle for something that is supposed to minimize contact with the beer. Anyone care to share their procedure?

Thanks in advance!

I am thinking I want to get the racking arm or a pressure kit. Doesnt look like anyone uses the bottom to rack the beer.
