The two types of siphons
There are two types of siphons, the old style, which works, but is difficult to get the flow started, and a newer type called an auto- siphon. What makes an auto-siphon the best choice is that it includes a movable plunger part that starts the kombucha flowing with a simple push-pull operation. Auto-siphons are inexpensive and come apart so that they are easy to keep clean too.
The auto-siphon makes it easy
Our first siphon was the old type and we found it made the weekly process of transferring our kombucha from our 2.5 gallon fermenter into a pitcher to pour into our bottles, cumbersome and inefficient.
All of these highly rated auto siphon choices will make kombucha transfers easy!
