You know if you fill the hose with water before you put it in the beer it will prime itself. There is never a need to use your mouth.

Carboy caps are also great to start a flow if you are using a carboy.

Someone on here has posted a method using a "T" that ought to prevent the wort ever touching your mouth before it goes into bucket.

+1 Sanitary racking 101.

Been doing this since my second batch a few years ago. Just hold the hose end to the faucet, with the rest of the tubing and cane coiled in your other hand. Fill it up and put a (sanitized) thumb over the faucet end to avoid losing water.

Insert cane into beer, and start the siphon over a pan/splash bucket/jug/whatever. Stop the flow when you get beer and move the tubing to your carboy/bucket/keg.

Gawd, it's easier to do than to explain... LOL!

I laughed when I saw the title to this thread. My wife hates beer, but it'll be a bad day when she spits in my beer.

I had siphoning problems. I believe I've solved them. I have a bottle wand with attached tubing. I stick the wand in the wort and suck the other end and it pulls it up. I then sanitize the bit that's been in my gob, top up using a turkey baster and plunge it in the wort. Works like a dream.

At least you can name the beer something cool now, like "Spitfire Stout/Ale/Whatever"

$9 for an Auto Siphon. Have her skip her non fat soy milk double pump no foam Vente cappo for one day and it's paid for.

+1 on the auto siphon. I love mine.

Stick it in, give it one good pump and you're done.

Wait, that sounded wrong.
