How long do I have to sanitize items?

How do I transfer from the primary to the secondary fermenter? Do I use a funnel? I got a tube with my kit, but as I understand it, if you siphon with your mouth you contaminate the batch. How else would you siphon to the secondary?

Question 1: Depends on the sanitizer. I use idiophor and it sanitizes in two minutes. Then you give it a good shake and use it. No rinsing needed.

Question 2: I wouldn't use a funnel and pour. That'll aerate your wort. A bad thing. Autosiphons are great.

Fill the tube with water. Hold one end higher and put it in the liquid to be siphoned. As soon as you let let go of the bottom end the gravity/vacuum will start to siphon.

Spend $10 and get an auto-siphon. One pump and siphon starts. No mess!
