So hello everyone, first thread on here but I have been homebrewing for a few years now, greenboard is in shambles so I moved on.
So I have been using ported better bottles for a little while now. I just find them so much easier to use than carboys because I don't have to siphon. The one problem is that all of the goodness sometimes does not want to come out. The reason being is that the better bottles have an arm that extends from the spigot so you can posistion it right above the trub. They claim that gravity does the work, but when the arm is lower than the spigot that doesnt work anymore.
Occaisionally the suction will be strong enough that it will be able to empty itself, but more times than not it is unable to clear out so I have to use my dirty grimy lungs to blow some air in at the top and complete the process.
I never really ran into a problem until this last racking, I moved an APA to the secondary and had to do this process...Now there are little white specks on the top (I know I know, wait it out) that look like grease in water so I think I may have infected it by blowing in the top.
So basically my question is does anyone have a better way of getting everything out of my better bottles?
