To to be safe, just before you siphon, gargle with a fine Scotch or Bourbon and be sure to swallow it. To be doubly safe, do it twice...And if you want Triple Safety, well, you know the drill.

That thing sucks, literally ;-)

Looks like a good solution for anyone who already has racking canes. For anyone starting out though, I'd still give the autosiphon a leg up. Why? Well, first it allows you to pump sanizer through your tubing which is a neat little trick. Also, it's only 9 bucks which is pretty close to a racking cane + the Tee and clamp. Very innovative nonetheless, keep it up.

Thats awesome.

If and when I break my autosiphon, that will definitely be the replacement.
