So I was racking some brew a couple days ago, and this kept happening:
I start the siphon, everything's great, and then where the tubing meets the racking cane, a bubble forms that slooooooowly grows until it breaks off and gets swept down the tube into the keg. Some questions:
- I figure this must be from a *tiny* gap between the tube and the cane where air can get sucked in by the flow. Is that right?
- Does this happen to everyone, or do I have a lousy situation here that I need to fix?
- Is there a sanitation or oxygenation concern here? This bothers me a bit when it happens while I'm racking to the secondary, since things are still delicate.
