Why has no one ever told me about autosiphons before?!?!?!?!

Even in my temporarily disabled state I am able to transfer 5 gallons of Star San from Better Bottle to my mash tun (cooler) with nary a negative affect on my gimp wrist...

What rock have you been living under??? Auto-siphons are KEY! Glad you finally discovered them!

Hehe... I actually bought it about a month ago, but then I had to go and fall down a flight of stairs... So between being hopped up on percocet, surgery and generally not being able to use my right arm for anything other than a hook to hang car keys on, I finally can perform some menial tasks related to brewing...

Sorry to hear about the accident but good to see you toughening it out and still brewing!

yeah man thats horrible. hope you patch up quick. if you like the auto siphon, maybe you'll like the thief. same concept but designed for pulling smaples for things like hydro readings.

Oh yeah... Had a thief after my first failed attempt at pulling a gravity sample... The autosiphon was more of a 'do I really NEED this?' kind of deal for me... But after a mouthful of Star San the last time, I thought, 'Yeah, I need one'...

I'm glad you've joined the modern siphoning world, but I have to ask: why were you sanitizing your mash tun?

That is great...

As far as why sanitize the mash tun, I dunno... wanted to run some through it... Is that bad?
