Default Siphon Pregunta

I have one of those ideas that has to have already been thought of and dismissed, as its so obvious. Could you use one of those $2 hand siphons from the hardware store with the hand "bulb" to siphon your beer or mead? That's got to be some reason why no one is doing this...

I've never had any luck at all with those things. Not for beer, water or anything else. Junk.

I'd be concerned about picking up off flavors from the bulb.

Or use a 2 dollar turkey baster from Walmart?

The auto syphon is the second best piece of gear I procrastinated about when I started brewing (wort chiller is the first). If you can I would buy an auto syphon for $15 +/- and be done with it. The 2.00 bottle filler attachment is must have IMO as well.
