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!
Day after day, it reappears. Night after night my heartbeat shows the fear. Ghosts appear and fade away. Come back another day.
