To get siphoning started without contamination (I always suck anyway,
never had any problems) take the siphon tube and feed it slowly into the
brewing container with the end or tube tap open. Feed it in all the way so
that the tube fills with brew, don't let any air bubbles get in by
pushing too fast. You now have your siphon tube fully submerged and full of
brew (still holding on to the end). Now block the tube or close the tap
and simply pull the tube out of the brew. If the end is blocked off properly
the tube will remain full of liquid as you pull. Aim the tube towards your
jug, bottle or whatever and open the tap. Hey presto!
