excellent siphon I replaced my quirky mouth-suction siphon for beer bottling with this,..in the brewing hobby it’s the best couple bucks you can spend. You still should have that “on demand” spring loaded thingy at the bottle end,..it comes standard with most brewing kits.Haha! I used it the other day to change the water in my kid’s fish tank! Whoever figured this contraption out is a genius. Who wants a mouth full of old fish water, eh? Oh, tough guy,..try lifting that 10 gallon tank over to the kitchen sink and dumping it, without losing the kids’ goldfish down the drain.

Good but hard to sanitize Works well, the main problem is that sanitizing it is a real pain. Either you try to wiggle it in all angles and try to get full coverage, or you have to rip the inner plunger out to sanitize them separately.

nearly essential Patience is not my strong suit, and the basic kit I bought did not include one of these little gems. I bought this from Midwest after twice spilling some wort starting a siphon – the operation seemed to require one more hand than I had available. If I had it to do over, I’d buy the half inch one to make the siphon go faster, and then I wouldn’t need to move my tubing from from my siphon to my bottling bucket. Yeah, I could buy another piece of tubing but it would still be on the slow side. I hold the end of my tubing under hot water to get it onto the autosiphon, and only push it on about a quarter of an inch. The plastic looks to be fairly fragile and the tubing is still difficult to removes – use the hot water again to warm it and make it more stretchable. Highly recommended.
