now you just gotta learn how to start that siphon without using your mouth!
Duly noted. I have in fact just purchased an auto siphon and will use it for my upcoming honey porter. However, I have never had issues siphoning with my mouth before [7 or so different brews]. Maybe I just have a really clean mouth.
...or more likely, I am just really lucky.
