- 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
- All Grain Equimpment Needs?
Everyone, I am seriously thinking about getting into all grain brewing and was wondering what else I need beyond what I already have and/or whatever is already on my wish list. At some point I will

Pros: Makes racking a breeze! Easy to sterilize, easy to use
Recommended? YesReally takes the hassle out of racking. Has a small plastic "filter" on the bottom of the cane which helps to keep out some trub and trash, which is removable for full cleaning. A couple quick pumps and boom you're done! They come in a couple sizes, one for large carboys and another for smaller fermenters. The above price (12.99) is for the smaller one. It still does the job well, though the larger one actually takes fewer pumps to get started, and obviously transfers more fluids in the same amount of time.

Pros: Saves much of the hassle of siphoning
Cons: Little too large to fit into my 1 gallon glass fermenters
Recommended? YesThis saves sooo much time trying to get a good siphon, plus the fear of sanitation with typical siphoning techniques. It has a little piece on the bottom so it won't suck up trub (though you still don't want to just sit it in the stuff) and works like a charm.
