Ultimate Siphon

The first fully chemical tolerant siphon available, The Ultimate Siphon™ combines fast transferring speed with extreme chemical resistance, and is tolerant to extreme heat.
Made of Type 316 Stainless Steel and our pharmaceutical grade Chemical Tolerant Silicone tubing, this is likely the last siphon you will ever need. Includes an anti-sediment tip to reduce carry over of sediment.

Do not be fooled by companies using clear PVC tubing on their siphon. While it is much lower in cost, PVC tubing has a poor resistance rating to ethanol and can leach plasticizers. The Ultimate Siphon™ uses pharmaceutical grade silicone tubing with an excellent resistance rating to ethanol, combined with a Type 316 stainless steel racking cane for the highest resistance of any stainless steel siphon.
 

  • Type 316, 1/2" Diameter Stainless Steel Racking Cane
  • 5' Pharamaceutical Grade Silicone Tubing for maximum ethanol resistance
  • ABS Anti-sediment tip

    Don't know what all the bad reviews are about!

    Posted by Sean on Mar 30th 2013

    I just got this siphon and used it immediately with absolutely no problems. Just prime it, put it in the liquid and have the output end lower than the input end on the SS cane. The tubing does kink when the hose is not full of liquid, but once this thing gets going the tubing holds up great. Maybe the bad reviews are from folks in need of a lesson in how a siphon functions...

    Save money and buy the cheaper version

    Posted by Darren on Jan 5th 2011

    When I first used the siphon I immediately realized that it is very difficult to keep the thin walled silicone tubing from kinking. Buy the cheaper version and use the saved money to buy some 1/2" I.D. by 1/8" wall silicone tubing. The it will be perfect.

    Not a good siphon

    Posted by George on Dec 31st 2009

    The stainless cane is great but the flimsy tubing does not support a consistent vacuum, making it hard to siphon due to collapse of the tube. I'll replace the tubing and I'm sure it will work great then.

    ultimate siphon

    Posted by just me on May 12th 2008

    I've found the best way to start a siphon is to use a common plastic turkey baster. It's plastic, so you can sanitize it and they are extremely cheap. I just push the bulb in all the way to get all of the air out, stick the end of the turkey baster into my tubing, and let the bulb go. It has always worked very well, for me. The vacuum created pulls the wort/wine/mead out quickly and once it starts just disconnect and let 'er rip. Nothing to it. this siphon is great. it will drain 5 gallons in 5-6 minutes. it is a good idea to practise a few times before trying to rack your first wort. hope this was useful.

    EXCELLENT siphon!!!

    Posted by Carolina Shining on Jan 21st 2007

    this siphon is the best i've seen. it is nearly indestructable (made of SS) and comes with a large enough diamteter hose to siphon 25 L in just a couple minutes. HIGHLY recommend this siphon for any siphoning uses!
