Hanging uncoiled works for me.

Me, too.  I've done the spinning it over my head thing recently, but it just doesn't seem necessary.

I hang it all on the end of a set of steel shelves.  Drips out and dries out nicely.

My neighbors already look at me askance.

Especially when I'm weighing out 4 lb bags of DME on the back porch.  Really, it's DME.  Nothing going on here.

Its all fun and games spinning the hose over your head till you bash yourself in the head with a SS camlock.  Owie!

I too often employ the "whip and hang" method  ;D  Glad to hear I'm not the only one. 

Now for the real question - how do you guys store your autosiphon?  I have a racking cane attached to the output end of mine to keep the end rigid and under the liquid when racking.  Works great, but there's just no good way to store that beast.

oh that's easy. I 'store' my auto siphon on the ground in the backyard wherever my three year old drops it. I gave that to him a while ago cause it just wasn't worth the trouble in my mind.

I'm much more organized that mort. I keep mine in a box with other stuff I never use, like 1000ml flask, a floaty thermometer, etc

You guys are hilarious.   ::)  Although I can relate to the floating thermometer and some other junk.  My 1000 mL flask was gathering dust for years until I recently scaled back my batch size.  Now it's just right.

The 1000ml flask is good for a step if you slant/freeze yeast
