How to Siphon

Here is a great video on how to siphon beer.  It recommends practicing with water first.  I highly recommend this.  The video shows the siphon being filled with tap water.  If you don’t like the taste of your tap water, you may want to let the tap water flow into a different container and then switch the hose to the container you want your wort or beer to flow into when the beer is about to flow.  I brew with spring water, but it is easiest to fill the siphon hose with tap water, so this method works well.

Alternatively, a good piece of beer brewing equipment is a siphon starter.  This can make siphoning much less frustrating, but will set you back about 10 or 15 bucks.
