So I'm getting ready to rack from secondary to bucket.  I have my siphon down in the bottle and start to attach the hose to the siphon.  The act of adding the hose to the fully plunged in cane and :shock: beer starts coming out.  I lost about 8 oz to the floor, but managed to get the hose to the bucket in time. 

WTF happened?

Was there any kind of fluid in the tubing to drain down as you attached it? That could have cause a siphon.
Don't look back, you're not going that way.
