Racking Cane is Broken

Currently, I have three batches clearing (a chocolate, the southwestern cyser, and the blackberry cyser) and I need to rack the cysers. So I go and get ready only to break the racking cane in the syphon. This is the third cane that has broken in the last 18 mos. Does anyone out there know of a more sturdy syphon set with filter?

I think I shall have a horn of the Root Beer Mead, a pipe of HS-3, and grouse about how "nowadays they just don't make 'em like they used to!"

Wassail!

Sorry about you racking cane! I have been brewing for about 2 years now and my original still works. Here visit my local brew shop "http://www.midwestsupplies.com/stainless-steel-racking-cane-30-inch.html" and look at the stainless steel variety. I think mine will last a thousand years.

Thanks! I got a stainless steel cane and a stainless mesh strainer. Life is good!
