Siphoning blows

Siphoning blows and I need a new racking cane and siphon starter, but the damned Pilsner finally made it into bottles. The siphon kept crapping out and this means a beer that spent forever clarifying in the basement got the yeast kicked up again, which annoys me. But what are you going to do? It's homebrew. Anyway, it should be in good shape in about a month and maybe really rounding into form in about six weeks?

The Singel is fermenting with great vigor and the IPA is already beginning to calm down. Now, to fine tune the barley wine plan and that goofy leftover-based Belgian stout. And need to write a recipe for a Dubbel.
