awesome! glad to hear it turned out ok. i think that the whole oxidation thing is a bit overrated, not that it doesn't happen, but i think many home brewers over worry about it.

now you just gotta learn how to start that siphon without using your mouth!

Duly noted. I have in fact just purchased an auto siphon and will use it for my upcoming honey porter. However, I have never had issues siphoning with my mouth before [7 or so different brews]. Maybe I just have a really clean mouth.

...or more likely, I am just really lucky.

Same here...my virgin batch was aboslutely a mess when I went to bottle with no siphoning experience...poured it from fermenter to bottle then added small portions of my priming solution...strange thing was, the first beer I tried was one of the best!

To start a syphon, I just jam a pen with the ink part removed and suck on the pen. When syphon has started just disconnect pen. That way u dont have to bother cleaning autosyphon or worry about contamination.
