The ideal size of hose for siphoning is 1/2" diameter. You can browse the net for cheaper and great deals with hoses or otherwise, just visit the nearest plumbing supply store or hardware in your place.

Transfer hoses are our most regularly replaced item (they gunk up after 50 batches or so). I buy 3/8" by 6' chunks from both Home Depot and my HBS. Can't tell the difference.

I use 4' for the siphon and the remainder for running the extract, lauter tun to brew pot.

What about high temp hose doesn't certain hoses let off a chemical or smell? Will it affect the wort when transferring it?

I like the curl on mine. It forces the beer to swirl in the bottling bucket and makes me feel good about how well the priming solution is mixed.

I initially had a 1/4" ID tube and went to a 1/2", which I thought may be a little to big for ~5 gal batches, but it sure goes fast and has a mean swirl!
