    The melted part of the bag was a black crusty char on the bottom of my pot. As I mentioned

    Here's my technique for starting a siphon with your mouth without having to worry about
    contamination. I cut a piece of 5/16 inch hose about 5 inches long and stick that in the end of
    my 3/8 inch siph...
