Samesies. In fact, ever since I started doing closed/forced transfers, I rarely even use my siphon anymore.If it comes with a stainless steel racking cane, you'll be set for life.
My "sterile siphon" setup includes a long stainless steel racking cane which I still use after 7 years.
With that, I've used CO2 at very low psi (1-3) to push beer from carboys into kegs that way, which is even a bit better than air. Now, aside from using the cane by itself, the cap is useless when using buckets, though.
after the first setup you learn to eyeball the racking cane height compared to your fermenter. when I finished racking the picture I posted I had less than 16oz in the fermenter.I guess your right. But how hard is it to move it up and down without it sliding abruptly and kicking up trub?
