I simply dipped the rubber band in a Starsan solution but the bag I used was so large that the rubber band was above the beer level anyway. It happened to be the bag I had on hand so it wasn't really planned that way but I wanted a large filter area so the bag wouldn't plug before I was done siphoning.
