4.7 / 5.089 ReviewsMuch faster than 3/8"I just recently stepped up from my first 5/16" auto siphon. I can't believe it took me this long to do it. There is no reason for the 5/16" one, honestly. Just get this one first. It makes racking from primary to secondary much quicker. Like others have said, run the tubing under hot water for a little bit, and it will go over the cane easily. Do the same when taking it off, and you'll be fine.December 6, 2012Racks fastUsing this siphon is not only super easy, it's fast, taking just a few minutes. _x000D_After using I run soapy water through it, then rinse, then star san. Before using I run Star San through it, including all the way up to the top.January 16, 2014Essential PieceFor under fifteen bucks, you can't beat it. I know I have siphoned hundreds of gallons through mine. It is still in good, functional, condition. I use Star San to sanitize all of my plastic brewing equipment, and none have developed any hairline cracks. I would highly recommend this piece of equipment.July 14, 2010Much faster than 3/8" autosiphonThis is a great upgrade from a 3/8"autosiphon. A quicker transfer means less exposure to oxygen and less risk of contamination.December 4, 2012Fast!I've been using the smaller auto siphon for a few years now and thought it was great. I bought this one to save some time and it does just that. It sucks down a carboy in less than half the time. Mine did lose its check valve, though, but I found it on the floor and reinstalled it using a tent pole and some masking tape to hold it in place. Otherwise it would've been nearly impossible to repair.September 6, 2013Transfers beer a lot faster than the 3/8 modelI really like it. Its easy to use and its not hard to take care of. After using it I place it in a pot of water and pump some water through it so no sugar sticks to it. When I'm done bottling, I pump more soapy water through it, to clean it out. Just keep pumping. Dump the water, and pump some more.October 1, 2013Auto SiphonGreat tool, simplifies the siphoning process, and makes it hassle free. They do wear out and break though, I'm on my third one, but thats over about 9 years.August 2, 2016great siphonway faster than the 3/8 model works great every time will get another when i wear this one outOctober 6, 2013Great!I have owned the 3/8" prior to the purchase of the 1/2". This is a far superior racking cane. Pay attention to the flow though because it moves quick!! No problems with hairline fractures or anything like leaks. I used 1/2" tubing to go along with it (about 6 feet worth). A must have if you are wanting to upgrade your home brewery.October 11, 2013BrilliantThis is by far one of the most ingenious additions to the home brew world. I don't know what I would do without one of these. They work flawlessly every time and I have never had an issue. All you do is connect the tubing to the cane and push it into the tube. Place the tube down in the carboy and pump it a few times and voila. 5 minutes later you have transferred an entire carboy to the next!December 20, 2012

Browse 2 questions Browse 2 questions and 11 answersdoes this come with the vinyl tubing?BEST ANSWER: Hello,
This is just the auto-siphon, the vinyl tubing must be purchased separately. https://www.midwestsupplies.com/1-2-id-siphon-hose.htmlWhat happens when you can't get the siphon to get out the last gallon? It stayed in the liquid, but stopped siphoning and with repeated pumping, I can't get it to siphon again.BEST ANSWER: Make sure what you are siphoning into is lower than what you are siphoning out of. Gravity still plays a part in this. I usually put my carboy on the counter and my bottling bucket on the floor. I've never had a problem.
