It's nice to get rid of a lot of that yeast. I use a two-stage
ferment (large plastic vessel, then glass carboy). This leaves
a lot of the yeast in the large plastic vessel.

Before bottling, I siphon back from the carboy to a plastic vessel
before priming. Again, most of the yeast stays behind. Hint: move
the carboy to the siphoning site some hours before. I prime and
bottle from the plastic vessel.

I have found that this procedure reduces the amount of sediment in
the bottles to a very thin scum. Due to the reduction in yeast, the
beer may take longer to condition.
