Racking Tips

Racking into Glass Fermenter clip

Racking can be fairly simple as long as you have the right tools.

1. Auto siphon!! or any sort up pump. Sucking on the tube to get the flow started works too but it just risks contamination and is cumbersome.

**If racking secondary try and reduce oxidation, other then that creating foam in the primary is actually a good thing and helps with a more aggressive and successful fermentation. Some people actually have a beer mixer that mixes the wort quickly to pump air into it.

Siphon directly from bottom of keg works great too but, make sure to check spigot first because bacteria likes to get all up in there. And we don’t want to deal with that mess.


The more gravity the quicker it goes
