One of the most Siphon is a simple gravity based transfer device that allows you to decant away your sediment without needless oxidation.
In order for Siphon to work, you need to keep your liquid at a height and the collection (empty vessel/bottle) at the floor. Also you should not forget that all siphon should be cleaned immediately after and before every use. If you see green or black mold growing in the siphon, please throw it away rather than endanger life and health of everyone.
We at Arishtam are keeping two kinds of siphon:
1. Is a simple pump with a stainless steel filter and a simple squeeze start mechanism. The stainless steel mesh will prevent any debris from entering the pipe and making life difficult for you.
2. Is the silicone siphon raking cane. This looks more fancy and is practical to because of its ability to pull the liquid from a greater depth (from inside your fermentation bucket/vessel) You need to pinch the tube and pull the pump a couple of times for it to start. Once done it should be good enough to empty then whole bucket without any additional intervention
