Default Racking without a racking cane or autosiphon

So a month ago I tossed all my plastic that was not heat resistant.

I forgot to buy any new racking canes... so last night when I wanted to keg my black pearl porter.... I was all ready and then remember...

So luckily with some last minute adaptations you can use a cornie keg dip tube as a racking cane, and can fit 7/16" vinyl tubing (from the kegorator) on to it (I stuck the flanged part down in the wort)
