As long as it's not so full that it is spilling out the top, you should be able to get some of it out.  How much depends on the spigot position of course.  But why swirl after fermentation, if you build the stand/cradle let it ferment and settle right there.

mernetation
One of the most interesting typos I've seen. ;D

Isn't mermentation what happened to Harry Potter when he ate the gillyweed?

gillyweed porter hmmm.

I was thinking the swirl and settle so that the initial FERMENTATION doesn't overflow as easily. after krausen has dropped you should be left with an extra couple of inches of bucket to work with in terms of tipping. But the concern about the spigot failing and dumping beer all over the ground kind of takes the air out of my sails I must say.

You've never had a gillyweed porter?  10x better than butterbeer!

Are you a muggle?   ???
