You ferment in the bottle, and they provide a way to rack to a bottling bucket, without the need of an auto siphon?
If you have an auto siphon then what addons do need?
ArcLight, add ons:
Simple flow valve - Simple on/off valve at the port.
Dry trap - Same as a fermentation airlock, it's a one-way valve.
Racking adapter - Racking arm to allow you to draw the beer from above the sediment/trub/yeast or whatever lies at the bottom.
Ported closure - Cap that can accept the dry trap or plug or whatever else they make for it.
Racking outlet install rod - Need this or something similar to this to install the racking arm to the inside of the bottle, since you can't reach your hand in there to do it.
I would use gravity to empty the carboy into another vessel, worked fine, auto-siphon is unnecessary.
Does that help?
