Curved clear racking cane is 22" (56cm) tall from the tip to the bend. It is used for transferring liquids in and out of buckets and carboys. The racking cane includes a tip to prevent the transfer of yeast. You will also need 5-6 feet of 5/16" or 3/8" vinyl siphon hose. 5/16" hose fits tightly. 3/8" is a looser fit and will probably require a hose clamp.
