Hose-clamps

Hose-clamps, are you serious? Well, yes, we are. We once experienced some difficulty getting an effective siphon going. The problem was that there was not a good enough seal between the transfer tubing and the siphon. Air was getting into the flowing beer, which caused the siphon to continually slow and then stop. Another cause of concern was the aeration that was taking place. Well, a well-positioned hose clamp, bought at the neighborhood hardware store, kept the air out, the siphon going, and the beer flowing. Transferring beer via siphon is now stress-free.
