Not 3 psi, more like 10 psi, which is what my carbing/serving pressure is set to. Maybe I should lower it when starting the siphon. I just give it a quick shot until I see the beer flowing, maybe 1-2 seconds.... plus I can start a siphon with co2 and the carboy cap. I just soak to clean, siphon liquid out. Semi- clean-in-place kinda deal. I feel it's safer anyway, instead of lifting a full carboy and dumping the water out. Dangerous...
Are you pressurizing a glass carboy?? THAT would be dangerous.
nah, if you use a carboy cap and <3psi it's not really a problem. I think Drew actually did a test that showed the cap would blow off before the carboy exploded... or maybe it was just discussed as an interesting idea... perhaps the mythbuster folks could explore.
