i tried to search and didn't find anything.

has anyone found a source for a fuel priming pump that is known to be food grade? or has anyone used a standard issue fuel primer to syphon with?

i had bad luck with my autosiphon. first use i attempted to sanitize it in boiling water.. (before i found out starsan existed) and the outer tube promptly warped. than not knowing that, i plunged and snapped the cane. i'm going to try the 3tee idea. thanks for pointing me to it.

That's not luck, you simply destroyed it. Buy one and don't boil it.

I love my AS, I only wish I had invented it. Boiling plastic is a bad idea

the easy way to siphon is fill a plastic tube about 4 feet long X 1/2" with hot water.
1) Pinch the hose off on both ends of the water.
2) Elevate Carboy over keg or seconday
3) realease the water at the bottom into a bowl or somethin till the beer starts flowing, transfer to whatever.
cheap and easy siphon. no moving parts.
I use a rack and fill kit tube and hose meant for bottling.
