Finally, a quality siphon for home brewing, distilling, and wine making. For siphoning out of a carboy, bucket or FermZilla. This siphon includes a 60" long x 1/2" interior diameter silicone tubing, and the stainless siphon wand itself is 22" long. A glass ball is enclosed in the end, which combined with a stainless spring, start the siphon for you when you move it back and forth. Sucking or filling the siphon full of fluid is not required: just dip it into the fluid to be transferred, and jiggle it up and down a few times.


This whole assembly is plasticiser and BPA free and virtually unbreakable.  It is made out of 304 grade stainless steel and is easy to take apart for cleaning. Easier to start than a conventional siphon but at the same time similarly simple to use and clean.

Note: Some of the pictures and the video show it with vinyl tubing, but it comes with silicone tubing. Silicone is the best because it can be used with everything from beer to hard alcohol.

INSTRUCTIONS
1: Sanitize and rinse your siphon
2: Make sure you have the full vessel significantly above the empty vessel you are filling into
3: Attach the curved siphon to the hose
4: Submerge the end of siphon into your full container.
5: With long swift strokes shake the siphone tube up and down to start the siphon action

Ditch the Plastic!

Review by Richard Sadowsky on 1/4/2020

I was excited to learn of this siphon, and when the opportunity arose to get it at a discount, I jumped at it. It takes more effort to get it going than I expected -- you really need to "jiggle" numerous times and with quite a bit of force -- but once started it flows just as fast as my large plastic one. Really the fact that it's stainless steel is the huge selling point here. No nasty plastic in the beer and it'll be relatively indestructible. I should never need another siphon.

Almost perfect

Review by Josh Wade on 1/14/2020

Creates a great siphon, once you get it started. Minus 2 stars for the amount of force needed to start the siphon. You really have to jiggle it forcefully up and down to get it going and that has always caused at least some sediment to get siphoned up as well. If you lose the siphon, you have to pull the tubing clear of any liquid it is submerged in to start it again. Also, if you lose the siphon with only a few inches left, you'll never get the siphon started again, so be careful that you don't pull it out prematurely.

Did Not Work

Don’t know if I was doing something wrong, but tried it 2 different times and it did not work at all. Will be returning this item.

Haven't got a siphon yet

Review by Andrew on 4/30/2020

Opened it, and made ready to transfer wort to fermentor and no amount of creative shaking or stirring would get the tube filled. gave up. tried later with water in my sink. No luck. tried to manually start it and sucked the ball into pace and stopped the siphon. I'm not convinced it works. really nice stirrer though. Maybe I'm the dunce.. always hold space for that to be the truth.

Q: What is the outside diameter of the Siphon end (the end that goes on the liquid)? I want to use with an oak barrel that has small hole.

A: It measures 7/8".

Q: Does the bottom of the stainless tube have anything on it that helps prevent sucking up the yeast sludge from the bottom of your carboy? Poly auto siphon has an end piece that redirects the entry fluid intake but tube is fragile. Thanks and God Bless.

A: No, you need to position or hold it above the sediment.
