Default Air during siphon

I have a question regarding the ill effects of air in the tubing during a transfer to my bottling bucket. I was using a new auto-siphon that was sucking a lot of air during my transfer resulting in a small foam at the top. I did further testing and it was my fault for having too much distance (height) between the carboy and bottling bucket. Anyway, I was wondering if anyone else had similiar problems and if the beer turned out OK.

Learning from my mistakes...but damn, this was my first AG (OG 1.051:FG 1.010).

Actually, just get yourself some 5/16" ID tubing so you don't suck any air.

Sightglass, Refractometer, Ball Valve, Weldless bulkhead, Thermometer, Decals, Stainless Steel Fittings, Compression Fittings, Camlock Quick Disconnects, Scale, RIMS tube, Plate Chiller, Chugger Pump, Super Clear Silicone Tubing, and more!

New Stuff?
