When siphoning my brews, I've gotten the flow started by sucking on
the end of the hoze (after rinsing my mouth with whiskey). I've
never had a problem with contamination. However, I often wonder if
there isn't a better way to do this. I have tried filling the hoze
with water first, but this seems like a silly thing to do: expose
the brew to fresh water. I don't think bleach solution is the
solution either.

Does anyone have a better idea on how to get the flow started when
siphoning?
