Saw this in the Nothern Brewers catalog-

Spiel is as follows: One stroke of the racking cane/piston assembly will start a siphon when immersed in as little as six inches of beer or wine; less than six inches may require a second stroke.

Have been up and down thru every Australian HBS website I can find, but can't see that anyone has them.
Doing primary beer in a 25l demijohn & ciders in a 10L, using the old fashioned suck & siphon tube is a bit hard without getting stuff all over the floor, this looks ideal.

I got mine shipped from http://www.uq.net.au/homebrew/. They're in Queensland. From what I remember that was the only place I could find it.

I've found my auto syphon to be very handy.

Brewers Choice in Chapel Hill, Brisbane sell them. I got mine there and have used it for the last two and a half years. They're perfect for racking without transfering too much yeast.

We sell something very similar at supercheap auto for a couple of bucks, called a jiggler syphon. It's intended for people who dont appreciate a mouthful of petrol.

I dont know what kind of plastic they're made from, hence cant comment if they're food safe.

Hey Pump, does your hose fit tightly to the racking cane, have to maintain the vacuum (suckuum). Had a similar problem and found that the hose was letting air in occasionally where it was pushed over the racking cane, bought some pvc hose with a slightly smaller ID which fixed the problem.

Another on-line store that sells them. Linky.
$16 + postage. They are very handy.
