30" Curved Stainless Steel Racking Cane
Curved, stainless steel racking tube. 30" long, about 27" in height. Works best with 5/16" ID siphon hose (#7100).
Be weary of using this in a glass carboy. Test it to see if you can swing it in BEFORE YOU PUT BEER IN THE GLASS. Luckily, I didn't break the glass; but I was terrified. I had to bend the cane a bit before it could fir inside my go-to 6.5 gallon carboy. Great function though!
Item works well. I look forward to using it for many years (beers!)
Absolutely a vital piece of equipment for any serous brewer. If you have a plastic one, keep using it, but when it breaks buy one of these! I can't believe I waited so long!
This 30 inch cane is exactly what I needed to rack from my 54 liter demijohns! Reaches all the way to bottom of the demijohn unlike the shorter cheap plastic canes. Being made of stainless should last the rest of my wine making days. One caution however is if you remove the little doodad at the bottom of the cane make sure when you put it back on that the friction fit prongs inside the doodad go on the outside of the cane. I thought they went on the inside of the cane and tried to force the them into the cane which of course did not work. Then I had a hard time getting it back on because I had bent the prongs inward by trying to force them inside the cane. Anyways perfect for siphoning from the big demijohns.
I used this racking cane and the two hole carboy cap to transfer using CO2. Excellent.
