I made one of these a few weeks ago using Flyguy's instructions. Used it last Saturday to transfer my scotch ale to secondary. Worked like a charm, even with the mouthful of sanitizer!
Thanks!!!

digging up an old thread.. i was wandering how im going to transfer my small 1 gallon wine batches I started.. now I know.. i actually have the harder small diameter pex type line that you use with an RO system. I also have the push on fitting T, and I happen to have an extra valve.. I will put about 2 inches of line on the middle T, then put the valve and the rest of my suck line.. Shouldnt cost me a dime.

I recently added small ball valves I had left over from old CO2 regulators to each of my T siphons. I kept breaking those pinch clamps and this works much more reliably.
