I am was just about the syphon the fermented beer into a keg and I noticed a bit if what looks like mold inside the clear tubing on my autosyphon. This is the clear flexible tubing that connects to the syphon.
I tried cleaning it out and swamping it with sanitizer but there is still some there.

Question, do I need to run out and get some more tubing or will I be ok?

I'd just replace the tubing. Better not to take chances on something cheap & easy to replace.

Tubing is cheap. If you have a hardware store or LHBS near by, I would just go get some.

It may be mold, it might not be. The risk probably isn't worth it.

Do you have any PBW or oxiclean? Soak in hot water for about 30 mins and rise it should get it out if you have to bottle today. Otherwise replace.
