Siphoning

You want to have the suction end of the siphon just above the sediment at the bottom of the fermenting vessel. The best way to do this is to have a length of glass tube (H in. bore) with a U-bend at one end, to bring the lower opening of the tube some % in. above the bottom of the U. This tube, with your polythene piping fitted at the other end can be pushed straight down into the vessel till the U-bend rests on the bottom. The opening will then be sucking up the brew just above the level of the sediment. A chemist will do this bit of glass-work. Failing that, you can buy a good adjustable siphon ready-made.
