- 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: Easy, intuitive design, greatly reduces siphon messes
Cons: More surfaces to infect
Recommended? YesAfter starting siphons the old way, this product made life a lot simpler. Now I don't have soda/beer running all over the place making a huge mess. It's simple and hugely useful for bottling/transferring to secondary.
Pros: easy siphon, simple to use, and easy to clean. I wouldn't be without one now.
Cons: The only con so far is that it is fragile. I'm on my second one.
Recommended? YesSuper product. I can't imagine not having one now
Pros: Inexpensive and indispensable!
Cons: Can bend and crack if not stored properly, Seal will loosen with age and use
Recommended? YesI don't dread racking anymore! This tool makes transferring liquids clean, quick and fun.
Pros: simple to use after spraying star san on, no more blowing into my carboy cap and spray germs on my precious brew, use to siphon from kettle, keg, 6 gal carboy, 1 gal jug!
Recommended? YesI'd put this product side by side with my star san interms of "take anything you want from my brew equipment, but leave these!"
I don't want to live in a world without an autosiphon every again.
Pros: Cheap, comes in different sizes to fit either small growler or carboy, long
Cons: heat sensitive, melts easily, becomes cracked with use
Recommended? Yesworks well. Make sure you use cold water or you will accelerate the cracking. After some time it will become warped and will not work properly.
