- Fermtech Autosiphon - Broke it, can I repair it?
I cracked the end of the raking cane on my autosiphon and now I am wondering if I need to buy a new autosiphon or can I simply replace the racking cane? I haven't really pulled to much on the rubber

Pros: Ease of use, Function,
Recommended? YesI used mine the first time last week. Talk about brain dead simple. It Rocks!
Pros: multi-function, ease of use, inexpensive
Cons: trub cap fits loosely
Recommended? YesAn autosiphon makes siphoning as simple and troublefree as possible. Even if the siphon is accidentally stopped starting it again is a breeze. In addition this can be used as a 'wine thief' to snag a sample of your brew (even out of a half full carboy) for testing purposes.
Pros: Easy siphoning, worth the 12 bucks!
Cons: Hard to clean hop leaves from inlet valve.
Recommended? YesSaves a lot of hassle when siphoning beer. I also use it to pump sanitizer through racking hoses for cleaning purposes. I have used it in water up to 170 degrees with no issues.
If you are siphoning beer with a lot of hop leaves, use a hop screen or grain bag tied over the inlet to prevent cloggage and difficulty cleaning.
Pros: Simple and quick to use
Cons: Quality of product
Recommended? YesEasy to use, easy to sanitize etc. Dismantling is simple as well, but now that I have hd mine apart several times to clean it and just to figure out how it works, the bottom tip does not click back on as firmly as it did when new. I am afraid it's going to pop off the next time I use it.
A handy tool and a good time saver.
Reccomended, esp for realative HB noobs.
