- 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: Easiest to start a siphon. Most sanitary siphon. Can sterilize the odd shape easily by pumping solution from a bowl onto it and back into the bowl. Large anti-sediment tip.
Cons: Plastic. Mine is showing many, many hairline cracks and looking like it is about to disintegrate. Beer gets stuck above the sliding cane. When siphon is just about done it gargles and splashes the last bit of beer around oxygenating it.
Recommended? YesCheck out the pro and cons lists.
Recommended? YesI again have not used it but to put it on my equipment list I have to write a damn review.
Recommended? YesThis simple little device is well worth the money. Siphoning is a snap now.
Recommended? YesThe best $12 you can spend for racking your beer. They are easy to use, clean and the built in filter keeps most larger particles out.
Pros: it works! easy!
Recommended? YesMine works great but as I've had it for quite some time, it does not seal up as well on the bottom any more, so it makes for very drippy wine thief action. But I never have to suck on a tube, and I can use it to run sanitizer through other lines. I also get much less trub than I did with a normal racking cane. I sometimes hook the end of its tube to a corny disconnect and rack in to kegs with it.
