I got a couple of lengths of SS tubing that I might use for siphon tube. However, I think that a regular hose would work if clamped well. Yes it will be soft and hot. And silicone would be the preferred method, but I've transferred tons of batches using the regular stuff.
One of these days I'm going to remember to borrow that hole saw from work and install that spigot on my kettle!
If your takin' your girlfriend out tonight
You better park the car well out of sight
'Cos if they catch you in the back seat trying to pick her locks
They're gonna send you back to mother in a cardboard box !
