Oops, I meant to say mini autosiphon attached to a bottle filler- yes with a tube in between

But I guess if I had all that other fancy equipment I could do it that way too

I just didn't know if folks knew they exist. They are the greatest thing since the 1 gallon wine jug for the small batch homebrewer.

+1 on that, now I just need to find it. At least now I know that others are bottling these small batches in a similar way

Is the point of it just to not knock over the jug with the weight...or is it just to have less lost in the siphon itself? Does it have a smaller bottom cap?

I am trying to determine why it is necessary, I did know they existed but couldn't find an advantage.

I had trouble using my big autosiphon on the gallon I couldn't get it to start to save my life, so I ran down the street to my LHBS that is three blocks away and got it.

I just do multiple pumps...does that not work with a gallon?

One option for a bottling bucket for these things comes from one of our members chubbykid . He has plans for a minikeg mashtun http://sites.google.com/site/chubbyk...keg-lauter-tun




Also a 1-2 gallon cooler can be used as one too.

Honestly I can't remember what the situation was, it was a couple years ago that I bought mine. It may even have simply been that my autosiphin couldn't fit comfortably in the small neck of the jug.

I'll make sure to do a water run before I do anything in them. I am pretty sure my LHBS doesn't have mini's on hand.

Finally got around to bottling the blonde. I ended up getting 9 bottles, booyah! Finished at 1010. I'm going to let this sit for 3 weeks before I test the first one. DKershner- one of these will make its way to you eventually.
