My buddy and I made a blonde ale. I loaded it up with about 3 pounds of raspberries during the rack to the glass carboy. After letting it sit for about 2 weeks, we went to bottle it. When attempting to use a pump to siphon the beer out, it became clogged with raspberry bits. I finally had to resort to pouring the entire carboy into a fermenting bucket and using the tap to fill the bottles. I don't think it will be a disaster, but I don't want to repeat this. Questions for the audience:
1. Any good tips out there for filtering the beer from a carboy while not aerating the beer?
2. Any good tips for siphoning the beer?
