I got an auto siphon as a gift recently. Unfortunately, it only reaches about half-way down into the carboy. All the brew supply sites and the fermtech site, itself, aren't exactly clear about the exact dimensions of the various auto siphons and about whether or not they'll reach the bottom of a 6.5 gallon carboy. Which one should I buy?
Edit: I think I may have been given the mini model. Mine is 24" long when fully extended, but 13.5" long when collapsed. Here is a picture of it in a 5 gallon carboy. You can see it isn't getting the job done:
I'm guessing the standard model is 24" long when collapsed.
