I made this cane out of a plastic coat hanger, a couple zip ties and some 3/8" tubing. It works and the depth is adjustable. Works fine for a primary fermenting bucket. Sometimes you have to do the best you can with what you got. And at the moment it was all I had.

That's the same technique my uncle used until I got him a Cane for letting us use 2 3gal carboys.

it's tubing I got from my local homebrew shop and the coat hanger is just a standard plastic hanger. Ever since coming in here alot of people have came us with some neat ideas as far as equipmkent goes. It would be neat to see a thread started where we, and you,could show off "our homemade wine/beer making equipment"

Neat, and who cares if its food grade. Its only in the wine for a few minutes.
