Rinsing Racking Tubes and Syphon Hoses
Keeping hoses and racking tubes clean prior to sanitizing is paramount to sound home fermentation practices. If residual wine, beer or mead from syponing is never allowed to dry, it can easily be power rinsed away. By using a faucet mounted bottle washer, either the Jet or FermTech, just push the end of the siphon hose over the tip of the bottle washer, push on the stem valve to open it, and turn on the hot water. The hot water will rush through the hose never touching or burning your fingers rinsing away the residuals. By keeping the racking tube attached to the hose, it will be rinsed as well.
