I Really like the sterile siphon idea. In fact, I used to do the same thing with and orange cap and racking cane. But, now I pretty much ferment in buckets. Any thoughts on a way to start a siphone the same way, but in a bucket?
I do the same thing with an auto siphon. I put a barb and threaded fitting on the end of the siphon tubing, so it just gets attached directly to the liquid post.
