I'm bottling today. I just realized I may be lacking some equipment. The beer is in a 6.5 gallon carboy right now. I have an auto-sipon and 6 foot piece of 3/8" tubing to transfer it to a bottling bucket, where I'll add the boiled sugar and a bit of cold-pressed coffee. I also have a Fermtech bottle filler.

What I don't have is a short length of 3/8" tubing that can connect the spigot on the bottling bucket to the Fermtech bottle filler.

Should I cut down the 6-foot length of 3/8" tubing after I'm done siphoning to the bottling bucket, and then attach it to the spigot on the bottling bucket and the bottle filler?

i use 3/8 without a clamp ok, but just be a little careful so you don't knock it off.

Either use the tube as is or cut off the length that you want.

Insert joke about six feet of tubing here. LOL!

Yeah, just cut a couple inches of tubing off the length you have.

Yes, you just cut a piece off your original tubing and use it as a "bridge" connector.

I don't know if it's clear in this picture from my thread but it's just a piece of the original tubing and a couple of plastic hose clamps.
