Product Details

One stroke of the racking cane/piston assembly will start a siphon when immersed in as little as six inches of beer or wine; less than six inches may require a second stroke. Includes a removable diverter tip to minimize sediment pickup. Plastic construction; can be disassembled for cleaning.

This high-capacity auto-siphon requires 1/2" ID siphon hose (#7106).

NOTE: It is highly recommended that you use 7/16" ID tubing with the 1/2" Auto-Siphon. Simply dip the tubing in warm water to soften it enough to slip over the end.

Very nice
With the right size tubing, this works great. The correct tubing as listed is a must.

It's a siphon and it works.

1/2 racking cane
Alows for fast beer transfer. One pump and away she goes! I used to use my noisy air compressor but never again. A wise buy!

Awesome! Why did I wait so long!
Just used it for the first time, and it was super quick and easy. Two pumps is all it took, and the beer was flowing fast and steady. The tip at the bottom of the siphon kept almost all of the sediment out, even when submerged right to the bottom of the carboy. Would definitely recommend the 1/2" over the smaller size. Well worth the cost, and I can't believe I waited this long to get an auto-siphon.

Will this fit thru the opening of the port hole in a glass 5 gallon big mouth bubbler?
Trent W on Sep 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The hole in the lid of the glass big mouth bubbler is a unique size slightly smaller than others. The auto siphon does not fit through that hole so to use an auto siphon

you have to take the lid off.
Will this fit in a 1 gal carboy?
A shopper on Oct 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I don't believe so. I have some half gallon growlers that I tried it in and it doesn't fit. I don't have any 1 gallon carboys to test it, but if it's a similar opening to a half gallon growler, then no. If it's similar to a 3 gallon, then yes.
I love this auto-siphon, but when I was cleaning it, the cane came out of the plastic tube...and with it, a small plastic piece. Is there a way to put this back together correctly??
Kathy W on Jul 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: If you mean the one-way valve, that happened to me too. I used a long dowel with a piece of masking tape on the end and shoved it down the tube and back into position then slowly rotated the dowel until the valve let go of the tape.
The recommended tubing for this is 7/16ths, but a standard racking cane for the other end is smaller than this. I've noticed that there's no larger diameter cane available for sale. Are people just using the hose for the other end instead of a cane? Or are they using a hose clamp to stop the other end from leaking? Isn't having a smaller diameter cane on the end defeating the purpose?
R B on Jan 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Not exactly sure what you're asking ... "but a standard racking cane for the other end is smaller than this." Do you typically use two racking canes? One on the input and one on the output? The intended use is to put this 1/2" Auto Siphon in the higher carboy/bucket where the beer/wine is and then have it flow through the tubing into the lower carboy/bucket.
What is the difference between this product and the Auto Siphon - 5/16" racking cane? How do I choose between the two?
S F on Dec 4, 2015

The only difference is that the 1/2" is a little bigger, and flows a little bit faster. I've used both myself, and I actually prefer the 5/16 size. I find that the larger one can kink at the hose.

Hope that helps!


How long is this siphon?
C H on Dec 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It is about 23 inches tall. Cheers! James J.
