Just bought a new one after finding out how worthless an autosiphon is when it's had a Honda Pilot parked on it.

Also, had to buy some bottles. With my kegerator down, I'm going to have to start bottling until I get my back-up kegerator running.

Yeah, I here they do better if you park a Camry on them...

Did you buy empty bottles or the fun type that need to be emptied?

That sux, paying for bottles. I've had to start turning them away.

And what's this about an autosiphon? Won't the old suck trick work? Oh, yeah, say that sentence a few times out loud, just for good measure.

Since you have CO2 you should get carboy caps and use pressure to push beer.
You probably won't roll over the tank, unless you're in the Wrangler.

I use buckets. Not a big fan of carboys. Too much work involved in cleaning them. I am thinking about drilling a second hole in my bucket lid so that I canpush the beer and use a wort wizard, etc.
