Now that everything is clean and prepped the transfer is a quick and easy step. Simply run a hose from the bucket to the carboy, pull out the air lock from the bucket so that there is an air hole in the top to allow the beer to flow, place the other end of the hose in the bottom of the carboy, open the spout and let it flow.
Placing the end of the hose in the bottom of the carboy (secondary fermenter) is a good trick. It keeps the beer from splashing and aerating to guard against oxidation again.
Once the beer is transfered the stopper and new air lock are attached right away and the beer is ready for storage again...
