5.0 out of 5 stars Ballihoo standard syphon
This standard syphon you must have in your kitchen cupboard. It is used for transferring your home brew or wine from your fermenting bucket to your final bottles and then capping off with either screw to or twist of tops.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could have been much better
The rigid straight bit that goes in the wine to be siphoned is a great idea. It can be seated almost on top of the sediment and, because it takes the liquid in from the top, is very good at getting as much out as possible without it being all cloudy.

This review is from: Home Brew & Wine Making - Balliihoo® Standard Syphon (Kitchen & Home)
The rigid straight bit that goes in the wine to be siphoned is a great idea. It can be seated almost on top of the sediment and, because it takes the liquid in from the top, is very good at getting as much out as possible without it being all cloudy. However, the clip is worse than useless. It is almost impossible to keep hold of the bit that is in the fermenter and then close the clip when a bottle is full. Even when closed it doesn't really stop the flow. A simple TAP (readily available from most places for about 99p) saves a lot of trouble and mess. I just don't understand why Ballihoo don't use them.

Its great when you finally get to this stage, then you can start to count when the correct date for the great nectar. This is a must and you should keep several of these handy.

This item is well designed and is very suitable for the task. Remember to keep the filter base well clear of the sediment in the bottom of the jar.

This does what is says on the tin. Perfect for hand bottling beer. This product also was strong enough that i didnt feel like it was going to break.

Does just what is expected of it. Well constructed and syphons wine well. Tap can be a little tricky to get used to though, but works well.

Good quality hose and moulded plastic. Looks like it will do the job and for a fraction of what I would. Have paid in my local homebrew shop.

This review is from: Home Brew & Wine Making - Balliihoo® Standard Syphon (Kitchen & Home)
never really got used to having a long length of wily tubing-i would have thought there would be a modern 'gadget' for siphoning-if there is then i must be a bit blind or naive-however-like the straining bags-it belongs in your box of 'stuff' and the annoying thing is you always need it
