I was playing around with an idea. Instead of using an auto siphon, would it be ok to use one of these. Would it be practical or would it be too complicated to sanitize? It would work perfect for home brewing wine, because it siphons a gallon a minute, and you can make it siphon both ways.

I'd be worried about how much agitation the wine'd get going through the pump. Here's a test..bottle your next batch the normal way, but pull off two samples in beer bottles. One bottled from the wand and one normal. Taste both samples side by side when ready and see if there's any differences
Primary: Sparkling White Grape Peach Wine

Secondary: Coco-Strawberry Wine, Pumpkin Wine, Apple Cider

Bottled/Aging: Pear Wine, Strawberry Wine, Blueberry/Blackberry Wine, Mixed Berry Wine (Blueberry, Blackberry, Strawberry, Raspberry, & Cherry), Jalapeno Liquor, Skeeder Pee

Is it food grade plastics?
Just because something CAN ferment, does not mean it SHOULD be fermented.
