So I broke my autosiphon and would like to bottle tomorrow. There isn't anywhere near me that carries the autosiphons. Is there a sanitary way to transfer? I have a racking cane and tubing but don't want to risk bacteria by using my mouth to siphon.

Thanks

Dan

Fill your siphon tube with sanitizer and cover the ends with your thumbs. Put one end in the beer and take your thumb off the end. Lower the other end and let it flow into a waste container until the sanitizer is gone and beer starts to come out. Bottle as you would any other day.

I do not, but a local hardware store carries them.
How would that work?

OK cool, this sounds easy enough. I will be bottling tomorrow it looks like.

Thanks

The carboy caps are EASY to use. Here's Walker's instructions:

Gotcha! That seems perfect. So no real chance of bacteria getting in from me blowing? It seems way too easy. Looks like I'm on the road to the hardware store for tubing and caps.


Thanks!

I've never had a problem. Theoretically it's possible, I don't stress about it. Gargle with something high-proof for a little while.

Cool, I have some listerine I will gargle with. Thanks again guys. I'm having a kid this week (hopefully) and I really needed to bottle tomorrow otherwise it might have been a while in secondary
