I use this siphon obtained from Home Brew Ohio to bottle Kombucha tea from 1-gallon brewing jars. You need to attach 5/16" (or ⅜") siphon hose to it (I used Midwest Homebrewing and Winemaking Supplies' 6 ft 5/16" ID siphon hose for this) which is the only real tricky part because the siphon hose must be warmed sufficiently and you need to be gentle when you work the hose onto the tip of the siphon pump tube - too much pressure on the bend could possibly break it at the bend. The hose doesn't need to go on far, maybe ¼" to stay put.

You must sanitize the pump and hose, which can be done by siphoning hot water or a food safe cleaning solution through it (and repeating the process to rinse it thoroughly inside and out) before and after use.

To get the siphon to fill the bottle you use a pumping motion which quickly gets the liquid moving through the hose. The instructions imply that you only need to do this once which may be true but the way my bottles had to be set up I had to keep pumping (which is easy-peasy) to keep the liquid moving. I recommend using a siphon hose clamp (which I also obtained from Home Brew Ohio), in order to shut off the flow when you need to move the hose from one bottle to the next and when you are finished filling the bottles, as liquid stays in the hose and can end up all over the counter if you are not really nimble with the hose.

I used a setup with a large silicone funnel that fit my bottles so that the business end of the hose with the clamp about a foot from the end could be stuck in the bottle and the silicone gave it sufficient purchase to stay put while I pumped the liquid in. As one bottle was full, i found I needed to hold the siphon in the container with one hand while with the other hand I clamped the hose shut and moved the funnel and hose to the next bottle.

I use this product in conjunction with a plastic bottle filler to transfer my 2-gallon Kombucha batches into EZ cap glass bottles. After a few months of use it seems to be holding up well and functions perfectly. Do remember to use gravity to keep fluid moving through the hose after first pumping the siphon. I had trouble at first when I tried bottling with all my supplies at countertop-level. Once I moved my bottles to the floor and let gravity do most of the work, it was smooth sailing from there on out.

All parts are glass, so it is a good idea to run the end of your tubing under hot water to soften it up before forcing it over the end of the siphon.

It's a pain to siphon beer out of the 1 gallon fermenter with the old siphon hose method. This device makes it a lot easier. If you are a 1 gallon homebrewer you definitely need this doohickey.

I am glad I bought this. It is really easy to use and works great, simplifying the siphon process. It siphons well, so watch carefully toward the end so you can prevent pulling in any of the yeast cake. I use this for every bottling session now.

A simple elegant tool that just works time and time again. I use it for my one-gallon brew batches. Clean it in soapy water then rinse in both cases with the same method that you normally use it. A few pumps and the liquid siphons out.
