Just now......Just this very moment....... I found out "I suck at racking"

anybody here beside me, ever get drunk while raking?

I have a bit of Newbee advise...dont try racking a 1 gallon batch with a 30 inch cane...trust me on this one. (its like trying to suck a potato threw a straw) Took the cane off, put the 3/8 tubing in..sucked just as hard as before..and wala...............I wonder if bleach gets out blackberry stain?

I think i'm gonna order the auto thingy.

Have a great day.

Regards, Jagland

As far as I'm concerned, the person who invented the auto-siphon (http://www.fermtech.ca/) is a genius who should have a national brewing day named in his (or her) honor.

Nah! the extra fun/enjoyment of trying to syphon through long, thin straws is half the fun......

as long as you haven't got to work or drive afterwards.....

Ha! Too funny!! My dogs try to get drunk when I start a new batch in the primary bucket. About 3-5 days in, they stand on the lid to force a little up and out of the airlock and then lick up the spill. I now have to keep my primaries on the counter, which sucks if it's a larger batch!

Fatbloke it started out as fun, but halfway through it I found myself...@$&^*$#@!$%
But oh boy what a learning experience..I cant really describe to you whats its like having blackberry wine coming threw my nose...
lol on the "No driving after racking"

Medsen I'm with you,the auto-siphon guy (or gal) gets rewarded..

Kee, that is just too funny....i'm talking a Video camera, and $10,000.00
1st prize on "Funniest home video's"

I did see while researching auto-siphon's that midwest now has one for 1 gallon batches.

By the way, when I said "I suck at racking" there was actually no-punn intended!
funny how words play together.....on to the next batch.

I'm such a newbee.......So here I am at midwest supplies home page, off to the left in a nice column, I see the heading "wine racks" Well after todays catastrophy, I'm thinking...yep thats me, sign me up, so off I go.....gzzzzzzzzz (head shaking while looking at the ground)

Did I mention Midwest has some really nice oak and mahogany wine racks for sale.

As my mead making comes to a close for the day, I know tomorrow is another day!
(and of course, I'll hit the floor running) Cheers.

I would love to be able to point and laugh, but I've done similar things way too many times in my life to be smug.

Heh.:confused4:

Wildoats, I'm with you! Notice I didn't mention my own experiences at this. ;D

And I don't even have the intoxication excuse because I've never been. My stupid mistakes are all mine, alas!
