Found! Not Jameson though.

u/sandgroper1968 · 61 pointsr/chicago

Glass bottle in the underwear, buy a large Pepsi as soon as I get in the gate and then head to the bathroom to mix it.
I also have these: GoPong Hidden Lotion Flask, Sneak Alcohol Anywhere, 3-Pack

u/Megasteel32 · 34 pointsr/INEEEEDIT

Here is a generic one, not the Jameson brand like the one in the gif.

u/jefffffffff03 · 30 pointsr/fantasyfootball

Various methods. I wear compression underwear (especially in the cold) something like the Nike pro leggings you see NBA players wear that go all the way down to the ankle like these. Now, when you are sneaking something in you want to make sure it is under your balls in the gooch area. That is generally the only area that doesn't get patted down for obvious reasons. Works best with airplane shooters, 1/4 pints, 1/2 pints. Comfort level in line is about a 2/10 and sometimes stuff slides up your ass crack, but nonetheless, it does work.

Another option is to get something that has a pocket for a cup in the front, like baseball sliders. You slip whatever the desired beverage is in the pocket and proceed through unnoticed. Works best with pint-sized bottles. Comfort level is much higher with this method.

If you really want to go overboard with it you can order these and bring your in your alcohol in plain sight.

When it is super cold and you are all layered up in winter clothing you can easily just utilize hidden pockets on jackets. They pat you down but not that heavy and typically won't feel it. I have also literally put a flask/pint-sized bottle into my hat (like a winter hat) with all my other shit on top of it and just went walking on past them.

The glory of it all is, you are sneaking in alcohol, not drugs. If you get caught its just kind of a slap on the wrist and they take your booze, but they have yet to catch me.

u/noochking · 26 pointsr/dayz

It's no glitch, friend.

u/DStoo · 22 pointsr/BuyItForLife

If you're afraid about that go with glass.

You can replace the gasket, left outside in the elements it should start decomposing ~1M years. (The metal will probably go first).

It's $8.

Edit: This is my dad's "BIFL" glass flask. The neck strap holes have pulled through. I'm thinking of buying some leather and redoing it. (And it'll give me an excuse to see if my Singer can handle thin leather).

That's survived multiple camping, backpacking, skiing and rugby trips. If I had to guess it was from early - mid 70s. It's a glass jar with a cork and a shot glass lid. The only part that could wear out now is the cork and Home Depot carries those.

The whole thing, full (of water) weighs ~1lb/16oz/~450g.

It holds 225 ml/8 floz and the lid/shot glass is 25 ml/.9 floz.

Literally qualified as BIFL too.

u/Pm_me_baby_pig_pics · 11 pointsr/bestoflegaladvice

That’s a fun idea! I’ve seen coasters that are like slices of a CT, and stacked they make the full image, ( these! ), that would be a fun thing to do if you could get your hands on those images! (They’re yours after all, you deserve to have them!)

Maybe I’m biased because I’m a nurse, but showing staff a cool xray or scan or whatever could be used as a teaching tool (still could be a HIPAA violation if they’re not directly involved in that patient’s care), but showing them to people just to show them, I’d still want to see but I recognize how illegal and not cool it is.

u/holemole · 10 pointsr/bourbon

If you're really concerned with oxidation, I'd just pick up a bottle of this.

u/JamesAGreen · 10 pointsr/mead

It takes quite a bit of effort to oxidize mead while racking. Just to give you an idea, we "rack" our meads with a large pump at the rate of several tens of gallons per minute (and at this point in time there is also a fair amount of off-gassing of dissolved CO2). I recommend you invest in a sterile siphon starter. You should try and plan on having enough mead going into secondary to fill whatever secondary/tertiary vessel you have well into the shoulder/neck (to minimize oxidation at the mead/air interface). If you don't quite have enough mead, you can add sanitized glass marbles or you can 'jacket' the mead with a layer of CO2 if you have a tank (if you've force carbonated a beer before, or something). Another (cheaper) option is to buy a can of wine preserver, which is a mixture of argon, CO2, nitrogen, etc (non-oxygen gases). The can is very light, and most people think the can is empty when they buy it - it is not. It comes with a WD-40-style straw and instructions for how to use it - but you could use it to jacket a carboy just like a user of a CO2 tank.

Cherries can be really delightful in a mead. I recommend using dark, tart/sour cherries (e.g. Balaton cherries, Montmorency, any nice morello-type cherry you can get your hands on). These can be pitted or unpitted, or you can use pitted cherries with some number of pits added back to the fermentation (use sparingly). Most people will recommend freezing the fruit for a week or so and thawing, although if you can purchase pitted, IQF/frozen fruit that can be nice, also. Ground shipping would be cheaper if the temperature is below freezing where you are this time of year. I recommend using a muslin bag or other fruit-containment device in your primary bucket - this will make racking easier and "cap management" a little nicer, also. If you use a copius amount of cherries in primary, then you can also expect that it will be eminently drinkable in 3-4 months time (with the proper yeast selection, of course, e.g. 71B-1122 or another low-nitrogen requirement yeast) but one which will also age extremely well - the fermentation will be extremely healthy because the yeast will scavenge cell-wall materials from the fruit's own cells, and the fruit also adds nutrients and a buffer against rapid changes in pH. Ferment at the bottom of the temperature range for this yeast.. In terms of honey and amounts, you can learn the various mead calculators on the sidebar, but in the end you will need to suss out how much residual sweetness you need to balance the tartness from the cherries, and also for your personal taste in residual sweetness. This can also change depending on the alcohol balance, determined by the yeast strain you select.

Star san is awesome.

Giving fresh, clean water to your cats is vitally important before you make mead with them. This way they are tender and hydrated, and I find the honey and cat flavors are well integrated and age well. If you are really serious about making a cat mead, see if you can find free-range cats from a local farm. I find the alley cats and other urban felines give the mead too many barnyard-esque, horse-blankety, and even phenolic off-flavors.

Not the exact Jameson one but this is the top one on Amazon

u/Jenkins6736 · 10 pointsr/Coachella

Honestly, alcoholic beverages inside the polo fields are so expensive that we resorted to these clever "flasks" last year and they worked like a charm! We snuck 4 of them in each day and had a good 'ol time taking swigs from the sunscreen bottles. You run the risk of security catching it, but security is generally very relaxed and the worst I've ever witnessed, or heard of, is them just tossing it.

Feel free to judge, but some of us can't afford $12 drinks...or even $6 drinks. I always buy 1 to be fair, but after that, it's purse booze for the win.

u/RichardShermanator · 8 pointsr/Frat

Get one of those flexible bag flasks, the ones that look like Capri Sun pouches (I'll post a link in a sec).

Put one of those in your crotch and move it around until it looks natural, even if the pattern you down it's hard for them to feel it. Bonus is they get past metal detectors. Just use two of those and they'll be good


u/andtheodor · 7 pointsr/wine

A stepped corkscrew is a good place to start. An Ah-So is good for older wines. For very fragile corks, try a Corkpops or Durand which is basically an integrated Ah-so and corkscrew.

u/pacoverde · 7 pointsr/electronic_cigarette

I agree with you but I think that the sidebar of DIY_eJuice is a little overdone. Sometimes the attitudes over there remind me of a bunch of guys sitting around an IT shop chastising the users for not reading the internal company documentation and then begrudgingly providing support to the retard who can't use a computer. I read the side bar when I started mixing multiple times and did tons of research through other resources and what really would have helped me get to where I am now 9 months later when I started would have been things like this:

  • mix using the scale method

  • has tons of flavors and repackages them into little dripper containers (so you don't have to buy pipettes). I have a ton of flavors from my first Wizard labs order that I never use because I hate having to use pipettes for them.

  • there is your calculator, a place to store your recipes, and a great source for recipes (tons of crossover by username to reddit)

  • get your nicotine base from - it is the smoothest I've found. They sell 120 ml "samples" of 100 mg for about $30 shipped and I have settled on using only VG as a nicotine base

  • Use gloves when handling nicotine and store it in the fridge or freezer. I break mine up so that I have access to a 30 ml bottle in the fridge but keep the rest frozen. For and even better preservation technique use this -*Version*=1&*entries*=0

  • Buy Essential Depot brand VG from Amazon - it's what a huge percentage of DIY mixers use

  • See all the recipes with flavors that contain the warning about diketones in the link sorted by top ranked above? That's part of what makes them good

    I realize that the technology surrounding mixing and vaping in general is changing very quickly. I also think that part of the reason new mixers come to DIY_eJuice and ask stupid questions is that they are overwhelmed with old or outdated info. Anyway, like I said I totally agree with you and maybe this short list will help someone else. I probably threw out 1-2 Liters of mixed juice learning these on my own.

u/fredb999 · 7 pointsr/cocktails

It's not gonna last forever no matter what ya do. But the best way to keep it fresh is to keep it refrigerated and use one of those inert gas "wine savers" or a wine vacuum gadget. Here are some links:

Wine vacuum

Wine preserver

u/bubbshalub · 7 pointsr/pcmasterrace

get yourself one of these if you dont have access to cold drinks. (it doesn't just chill wine)

u/ThePensAreMightier · 7 pointsr/orioles

I've used them at a bunch of different places including the Women's US Open, Oriole Park at Camden Yards, M&T Bank Stadium, Citizens Bank Park, Beaver Stadium, Heinz Field, and the Giant Center (Hershey Bears) but the Barnoculars have never let me down. Made from all plastic so metal detectors don't mess with them. Each side is an eight ounce flask with it's own cap and canister which means you can bring in two different boozes of choice if you would prefer to do that. I usually grab a soda from the concession stand and hit the bathroom and dump in one side into a soda for a nice Jack and Coke for the game.

u/Guard_Puma · 7 pointsr/formula1

Tip #1 for keeping it cheap: get GA tickets. In my experience and that of many people I've spoken with, yeah the grand stands are nice, but just not enough to be worth the jump in price. Just bring a folding chair, and spend the early weekend exploring the track and finding a good viewing area in the grass, then post up early on race day with one of these:
Looking forward to my first Montreal GP next year as well!

u/feqma · 7 pointsr/cocktails

Hand Cranked Ice Crusher

I switched from a bag and mallet to one of these and never looked back. Also very inexpensive. You do need a stable and very smooth countertop for it to work properly - it attaches with a large suction cup on the bottom.

u/wkndgolfer · 6 pointsr/Scotch

Buy a bottle of wine preserver at Total Wine or Amazon, like [this] ( I opened a bottle of 'Fiddich 18 about a year ago and after I drank about half of it I used the wine preserver and put it in the back of my cabinet. Had a dram last night and it was fine...which reminds me, I need to go use it again before I put the bottle back in the cabinet.

u/bpi89 · 6 pointsr/whiskey

Are they all unopened? For unopened bottles just keep them upright, in their boxes, and at moderate temperatures (room temp inside is fine).

If any are opened then maybe look into a wine preserver that uses inert gas like this, for the next time they're opened. Don't open for the sake of spraying them, but for any bottles that are less than 3/4 full, next time you open them to have a drink, spray the inert gas preserve in there as directed and that will help prevent them from oxidizing further.

u/ChalkyTannins · 6 pointsr/wine

Argon gas preserving is by far the best way... can keep wines fresh for a week or longer...vacuum savers only increase the life of a wine by about a day.

u/ProphetOfBrawndo · 6 pointsr/Libertarian

New possible loophole:

  1. Buy warm beer from store

  2. Walk to store's chilling station

  3. Success!

    I don't see anything in the law saying the store can't provide a chiller for already purchased beer. Just like they provide a microwave to heat up the burrito you just bought to go with your beer...

Drunk me has done online shopping for people before. One of my friends randomly received The Shot Flask from me for no reason. Well, there was kind of a reason. I was gifted one for Secret Santa and was drinking out of it and thought it was the greatest thing ever and that everyone needed one!

u/ProgrammaticallyTiki · 6 pointsr/Tiki

I don't have experience with any of the Trader Sam's Mai Tais but the original 1944 Trader Vic's recipe is detailed in one of my earlier posts.

The consensus seems to be to use Small Hand Foods orgeat if you can get your hands on it and Pierre Ferrand Dry Curacao. I used what I had on hand when I made it in the post above. For the rum, Denizen's Merchant Reserve 8 Year was formulated especially for the Mai Tai, being a blend of Jamaican and Agricole rum. You can also do a 50/50 split between an Agricole Vieux and an aged Jamaican rum. I have Clement VSOP on hand for my Agricole Vieux which is a good option but others can chime in with their favorites. The world of aged Jamaican rums is vast and it's fun to substitute different ones in the Mai Tai and see how it changes. Appleton Reserve might be a good rum to start with as the Jamaican component and you can experiment from there.

For juices, always used fresh squeezed and preferably juice within a few hours of using them.

For crushed ice, you can take a lewis bag and ice mallet and smash ice cubes (while releasing some stress). If you don't want to buy those, feel free to use a rolled up clean dish towel and a rolling pin or something like that.

For bigger parties, I know people recommend the ice from Sonic Drive-In or Chick-fil-A. They'll both sell you a bag for cheap.

I've been looking to get a hand crank ice crusher but haven't yet. I've seen this one recommended a lot as well as some of the vintage ones on eBay like the Oster Snowflake.

u/poopsmitherson · 6 pointsr/Homebrewing

Yes, use the recommended amount. And buy one of these bad boys to save your hands on bottling day.

u/Petit_Hibou · 5 pointsr/Music

Some way to smuggle booze into the concert so you're not stuck paying for $15 rum and cokes. I recommend a binocular flask which looks like a pair of binoculars but is actually full of sweet sweet booze.

You could do both with an ounce of frugality. My oxygenation "kit"

u/ShivaCobra · 5 pointsr/ElectricForest

I bought these last year on a whim and they were amazing for festivals. They are sun tan lotion containers that are designed to discretely hold liquor. I did get some funny looks while taking whiskey pulls from a sunscreen bottle though.

u/TakesJonToKnowJuan · 5 pointsr/beer

You can't go wrong with a flask, then. Or maybe a few of these.

u/Bambam_go · 5 pointsr/Coachella

u/Banjerpickin · 5 pointsr/Homebrewing

That's basically what a bottle rinser does so you should be fine.
I don't bottle in mass anymore but, when I did, using one was a huge time saver and I never had a contaminated bottle.

If you bottle often, a bottle rinser and bottle drying tree are cheap and worthy investments.

u/itskubez · 5 pointsr/ElectricForest

pro tip: get these and hit up the lemonade stand

u/tequilajunction · 4 pointsr/cocktails

You want a soda siphon. I have an ISI, and it is fantastic.

u/a_monomaniac · 4 pointsr/bartenders

They make wine keys that you don't have to open to use as a bottle opener.

I find it better for many reasons, it fits in the hand better than a bar blade, it's smaller, it's multi purpose.

The way I use mine, the same one I linked above, is just as easy as a bar blade.

> Sorry your memory is shit? Maybe try laying off the booze a little?

You seem to be having a shitty day and are lashing out, hope today is better for ya.

u/Rithe · 4 pointsr/shufflesdeck

Mead is super easy and rather cheap compared to other types of brewing. If you have a local homebrewing store they can help you get started and will have everything you need, most major cities have one and I find that the people are almost always very helpful.

The first thing is to decide volume, then if you want to boil or not, and then recipe (which includes batch strength). I prefer to boil my mead to help dissolve the honey and make sure its good and sanitized, but thats not entirely necessary

So Optional Equipment (if you boil)

1 Big Boil Pot - This needs to be big enough to do however much you want as a batch. If you get a 5 gallon pot, this is good enough for 2-3 gallon mead as well as if you got into Extract Beer Brewing. If you buy a 10 gallon boil pot (usually $120 or so) its big enough for 5 gallon All grain beer batches, as well as 5-8 gallon mead batches

2 Burner - If you are doing smaller batches your stove can handle it, if you move up to big batches or beer batches it helps to have a propane burner and propane tank.

Non optional Equipment:

1 Fermentation/Secondary Vessel - There are two options here. The cheaper route is the 8 gallon buckets with a lid and an airlock. A rubber mallet also really helps to get it on the first time (trust me here). They are about $20. The second option which I'd recommend is one of the Speidel fermenters, they are a bit more expensive at $50-$60 but have a nice spigot for siphoning and are super nice. You also need an aging vessel as you need to let it sit for 5-6 months before bottling. For this I recommend a PET carboy or a smaller Speidel Fermenter

If you are doing 5gallon, get the 8g Speidel or equivilant sized bucket. Get a plastic carboy or the smaller speidel fermenter for aging

The downside to not doing the Speidel fermenters is then you need a bottling bucket and a siphon pump to get the mead out of the bucket, I like the speidel fermenters because I can just transfer to it and use it to bottle with.

Bottle Filler and 3' rough of Hose - This is for bottling

Bottles - I prefer the nice flip top ones but they are usually around $30 for only 12 of them. The other option is to buy some bottle caps, and clean

Iodophor / Star San - Cleaner, just google them. You need this to clean all your equipment as well as your fermenters

There are some minor other things, such as a Big spoon for stirring, having a thermometer is a good idea... maybe other things but I think I covered most of it

Recipe: (The recipe itself)
Normal recipes are around 3 pounds of honey per gallon of water, so you need to get 15lbs of honey if you do 5 gallons. More honey will up the alcohol, less honey will lower it

A vial or two of yeast. I like to pitch two of them just to make sure it starts. I use Sweet Mead Yeast

Yeast Nutrient - Mead doesnt have some of the nutrients beer does, so a bit of this added per the instructions gets the yeast going

Optional - Flavoring. I tried out strawberry this time, totally optional but just google it and you can find it. Usually it comes in a tiny bottle


First you dissolve honey into water. If you are doing a 5 gallon batch, use 5.5 gallons of water. If you are going to boil, nows a good time. During this process, Add the yeast nutrient. Put the mixture into your fermenter vessel. Cool it down to room temperature (important)

Its fairly important to ferment at 68-70 degrees for at least the first week or two (yeast stuff), so if you don't have central heating/cooling that could be an issue you have to tackle from another angle. At this point, pitch the yeast and seal it up and let them do their job

Wait about a month for it to ferment (the airlock will go bloop bloop a lot). Sanitize the hose and secondary/aging vessel, this vessel should be close to your actual volume so there isn't head room. Then transfer to the secondary, pop the airlock on it and let it age for usually 3-6 months, depending on your patience. At that point, transfer it back to a different vessel (to get it off the trub) and during this process add any flavoring (if any). Finally, siphon into bottles using that little spring bottle filler attached to the hose, and cap it

That was a bit long winded but I was trying to be thorough. if you have any questions feel free to PM me!

u/NotAlwaysSunny · 4 pointsr/electricdaisycarnival

In my opinion, these type of flasks that masquerade as something like a camera, phone, lotion bottle, etc all suck if you get someone at security who's even remotely diligent at looking through your bag. A lot of the times these flasks feel cheap and the moment you pick it up, you can just tell it's not real.

I find just taping one or two of these to my inner thighs work well. It'll be uncomfortable until you can get to security but eh, booze.

u/Aidman923 · 3 pointsr/Soda

I have made a few sodas so far. Most commonly, (and my personal favorite,) I make a ginger beer. If you have a juicer, that's the way to go to make good home-crafted sodas. You can create all kinds of flavors with just the juice of fruits and vegetables, then sweeten with simple syrups, add water and carbonate. Keep in mind that using fresh juices puts a certain shelf life on your drinks. (Still working on how to preserve one's sodas for bottling, etc.)

I personally use a soda siphon for carbonation ( This has its perks and downfalls. On the one hand, forced carbonation produces zero alcohol content (which is why I go with that,) and forgoes the possibility of accidentally blowing up your bottles of soda due to over-fermentation (I've actually seen this happen.)On the other hand, it fizzes out and goes flat faster and more easily than fermenting. This has been an issue when I've tried to make a bottle of carbonated ginger beer (or any other soda I've made) and then attempted to drink from the bottle. By the time you're doing so, there isn't much carbonation left.

My next venture is Sarsaparilla, or maybe an actual root beer. Either way, creating and perfecting your recipes is fun and delicious. I really enjoy it as a casual hobby. Good luck in your attempts!

u/Berchmans · 3 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I'm a waiter, this is what I use to open 4-5 bottles a night. double hinged corkscrew Works great and I've had the same one for years. Get your buddy two or three and a bottle of wine.

u/goldfish18 · 3 pointsr/DIY_eJuice

I am not a new mixer, but this is something that new mixers might have a question about in the future.

I ordered nicotine from a place I have not ordered from before to see how other nicotine stacks up to my current nicotine (Nude Nicotine Nude Armor v2). I ordered this from Heartland Vapes thinking it was a great deal and Chemnovatic is the same nicotine that other trusted vendors have supplied in the past.

The newbie part of this is that today happens to be one of the hottest days this week where I live (Southern California). It also just so happens that today is the day my nicotine will be delivered so it will be in the hot sun all freaking day until I get home from work at about 6pm. We all know that nicotine has three kryptonites which are heat, light, and oxygen.

Here's what I am going to do in order to try to make sure my nicotine has't gone bad. Immediately when I get home I'm going to open the container of nicotine and give it a smell as well as take a look at it. It should be relatively clear. It should not be any color. When smelling your nicotine don't want to stick your nose all up in the nicotine, but open it enough so that you can get a whiff as safe as possible. When I do that, I do not want to smell anything. If it smells off or fishy or if it smells like anything really, that's a bad sign. Next, I am going to draw up about 5-10mL of the nicotine and place it in an amber bottle to mix with later. Before putting the nicotine away for storage, I am going to decant the 120mL bottle into two amber glass 60mL bottles for storage in my freezer. Before capping and placing in the freezer, I'm going to spray some argon in the two bottles to displace any oxygen. I use this argon spray. I've heard storing nicotine in the freezer is not required, however I do not have AC and I have the ability and space for nicotine to be stored in my freezer.

Next step is to take the 5-10mL we got and use that in a shake and vape recipe that you have used before and enjoy. This is to ensure that the nicotine is good and if all goes well, there should be no taste difference from this recipe you just mixed up compared to when you've made this recipe before with your other nicotine source. When I am vaping that shake and vape recipe with the new nicotine, I'm looking for anything off about it. Look for an off taste, smell, and harshness. If all goes well, I will consider my nicotine fine. If there is something off about it, I will contact the vendor and try to sort it out with them rather than put them on blast in a post.

These are all steps you should take when you get nicotine in the mail even if it hasn't been hot as fuck.

TL;DR When you get nicotine in the mail, make sure it hasn't gone bad by smelling, looking for any off color, and mixing some of it into a shake and vape to ensure that it is ok. If you feel it has gone bad, contact the vendor to see what they can do about it rather than posting in this sub with your complaints. Always do everything you can to store your nicotine properly by avoiding heat, light, and oxygen.

If anyone else has anything to add to this, please feel free to do so.

u/WubbaLubbaDubStep · 3 pointsr/Scotch

This seems like a lot of work, and potentially risk cracking your bottle when you drop them in, or cracking a glass when you pour it out.

If you're concerned with shelf-life, I recommend purchasing an inert gas spray like this. It will dispel oxygen and should increase the life enough to hold you over.

u/mfinn · 3 pointsr/Scotch

10 bucks for more than you'll use in probably 2 years. Nitrogen is completely inert and a better choice than CO2 in a non-carbonated beverage...this is a mix of Nitrogen, Argon, and CO2 and I think a better "cheap" option thank straight Nitrogen or the marble route.

u/oakmalt · 3 pointsr/whisky

When the bottle gets about half empty I use a few sprays of inert gas to remove oxygen and add electrical tape to top for air tight seal. They are usually branded as wine preservers and pretty cheap. Re-apply after each dram and it works a treat. I've bottles open for more than 4 years with this method without issue.

Private Preserve Wine Preservation Spray

u/mfeds · 3 pointsr/Scotch

You can use something like this:

Everybody's opinion is a lil different but general consensus the last few similar posts seemed to say that most bottles are fine until they are maybe 1/2 to 1/3 full and then you might focus on finishing them off. If a bottle is open but almost full most people seem not to worry but you can use a preserver spray on any open bottle and it will put a layer of inert gas on the whisky keeping oxygen away.

I don't know if you care about glass or not, but if you take care of this one it'll last you forever w/o any leaching flavors. After a while you may need to replace the rubber gasket on the lid, but those are easy to find and very inexpensive.

u/3Vyf7nm4 · 3 pointsr/Homebrewing

I'm not sure glass is a logical step. It's nice for sanitation reasons, as brewsky points out, but that's basically where the "plus" column ends. It's heavy, fragile, and very temperature sensitive. Glass fermenters aren't safety glass (e.g. like a car winshield), so when they break (and they do break), razor sharp pieces of glass and 5 gallons of sticky warm liquid go everywhere. If you DO get glass, get a brewhauler.

I used to use glass, but I have transitioned over to plastic Speidel fermenters. They're lightweight, easy to clean, and have carrying handles.

When you clean, use an Oxygen-based cleaner. Don't scrub. Let it soak - for tough soil let it soak overnight. You don't want to scrub because you will scratch the plastic. Scratches (even those too small to detect) will harbor bacteria and will infect your beer. Use a soft cloth and if that can't get it clean, let it soak longer.

Don't worry about crap going into your fermenter. It won't hurt your beer. In fact, it will provide nutrients for your yeast (and they, in turn, will "scrub" out off flavors if you leave them to their work long enough).

When transferring to your bottling bucket, an autosiphon will leave the trub behind (it will work even better if you cold crash your beer before bottling).

For bottling, I'd use a plain old racking cane and a bottle filler

u/nateand · 3 pointsr/Homebrewing

Hm suck on the siphon? Have you heard of an auto-siphon? They're pretty cheap and available at any brew store. They come in different sizes and everything.

I think a bottling wand is worth it. Trying to do it with just a spigot can introduce a LOT of oxygen. Doing it with an auto-siphon is feasible but stopping/starting the siphon so often would be annoying.

A note about me: I started vaping 5 months ago, I use an MVP 20W with an Aspire ETS tank, I vape at 5.3 volts and that is perfect for me. All of the vaping terminology about mods and attys (whatever they are) is completely foreign to me, but I am willing to learn. I like fruity flavors as you can tell by my list. I don't even like chocolate irl. Yes, I realize that potentially makes me a psychopath. I have tried a few dessert juices but did not like them at all. They were just weak tasting. My favorite juices have been Unicorn Poop by TVC, and Dragonfruit and Cereal Crunch by Cloudberry Vapors. To start out I got mostly fruity juices so I can basically get the feel for what on earth I'm doing and for how the flavors all work together.

So that's it, I will embark upon placing tons of orders tomorrow after work if I've got everything correct. Thank you SO MUCH to this subreddit, it's really an amazing resource!

In addition to buying vermouth in smaller bottles, I highly recommend quickly preserving the bottle between uses. This has changed my vermouth and wine game; I no longer have to stress about it tasting fresh even weeks after opening.

Private Preserve Wine Preservation Spray

u/pinkfloyd4ever · 2 pointsr/cocktails

Yes this! I do all of the above and i can stretch out my bottles of vermouth almost indefinitely.

I use this for what FunkIPA is referring to as Argon Private Preserve Wine Preservation System | 100% Green Gas Based | Suitable for all Wine, Port, Sake, Cognac, Whiskey, Fine Oil and Vinegar (it does contain argon but I believe it’s mostly CO2)

u/goatnapper · 2 pointsr/electronic_cigarette

Yup, it's heavier than air, so it creates a barrier between the oxygen and the nicotine.

Updated thread on preserving the components:

u/mrhobo_rz · 2 pointsr/Scotch

I actually just found out that preservers are a thing. You can buy a can of a preserver (which is basically an inert gas) and this will help keep it from getting oxidized.

The basic rule of thumb is that once a bottle is about 1/3 full it's time to either use a preserver, or invite some friends over to finish it off.

u/Level41821 · 2 pointsr/mead

My first 4 batches ended up the same for secondary, i purchased this, and filled in.


u/HandsomeBWonderfull · 2 pointsr/Chefit

I can't back this up with science, however I have had good results with making large batches of wine reductions and then storing them in that walk-in. I dunno about years, but it kept for well over a month. A lot of liquor stores sell smaller bottles of wine, usually they aren't really a vintage worth speaking of (same problem with boxes, although a lot of the nuances of flavor are lost in the reduction, you still don't want to cook with anything you wouldn't drink). If you want to use a wine worth bragging about there are different ways to keep the wine from oxidizing(?) or whatever ruins it with a can of something or a whole 300$ system which I guess is cheap considering what some people pay for wine.

u/abedmcnulty · 2 pointsr/wine

Private Preserve works great and is very cheap (comes out to less than 10 cents per use, insignificant compared to bottle price). Just be careful not to move the bottle once you've sealed it until you're ready to open it again.

The small bottles method should also work. Don't use a vacuum pump, most reviews say they don't work well, and you are pulling out the volatile compounds that give wine its aroma!

u/kale4reals · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

I tried using a can of Wine Preserve and seemed to make a difference!

Edit: Private Preserve, this stuff:

u/notyouravgredditor · 2 pointsr/bourbon

Keep it upright, make sure the top is air tight, and it will last for years and years. I have many 4-5 year old bottles I still crack open on occasion for an ounce or two.

When the bottle gets low, you can use Wine Preservation Spray (just inert argon gas in a can) to prevent excessive oxidation. The Argon is heavier than air, so a couple squirts in the bottle will coat the surface of the liquid with Argon so it doesn't oxidize.

Honestly, though, I like my bourbon a little oxidized so I don't use it until the bottle gets really low (like only a few ounces left), and at that point I typically say might as well finish it off anyways heh.

u/shane_il · 2 pointsr/Scotch

You might want to try argon gas or such stuff used for preserving wine (like this). It's a nonreactive gas that's heavier than air so it sinks down and covers the booze which stops it from oxidising.

Summers get pretty damn hot where I am (upwards of 40C), and my whiskies do just fine in a cool, shaded cabinet. I've kept open bottles for 2 years or so before.

u/zigmus64 · 2 pointsr/DIY_eJuice

You can find them on amazon, for example. You can also check out wine making websites, there'll be sure to have em. Like e-juice, wine making has a huge crafts/hobbyist side so there'll be a lot of info about if you google.

u/krnlpanik · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

you can probably find a CO2 bike inflator from Walmart or something that might be cheaper and easier than marbles, but if you're in a pinch, i guess marbles could to it. They also have argon inert gas in a aerosol that you can buy for like $10.

u/hapticsquid · 2 pointsr/ECR_UK

If you're TPD bunker stocking the freezer for some years ahead, ideally the smaller the bottles of nic base the better so you can leave the ones you're not using unopened for as long as possible. Also spreads your risk if one bottle does spoil for some reason. Downside, the smaller the bottle the more you'll pay per ml.

Darkstar did have a 5x100ml freezer pack (it's just 5 of their individual 100ml glass bottles as a multi-buy) but that option's not coming up on the site atm, I know they had it I bought one a month ago to fill up the last corner in a freezer drawer. 250mls are fine though and more economical, also a nice size for standing upright in a standard home freezer drawer (their 4x250ml is £44 c.w. £8 for 1 x 100ml).

I decant nic base into a working bottle, a 50ml plastic squeezy nozzle that also lives in the freezer. If the opened glass bottle of 72mg is 250ml or larger then I put some of this in the top of it to help preserve it. Not essential, I'm probably being overcareful but oxidation is the enemy I'd be pissed off if a bottle of my limited stock went bad when TPD doesn't let me replenish.

as a guide on how much to buy before next May, 500ml of 72mg base is enough nic for 5.95 litres of 3mg e-liquid.

Starting out, look at recipes from, recipe threads with recommendations and good feedback at r/DIY_eJuice (use the search and the sidebar before you post new threads there, or ask in the new mixers thread, if you don't then folk there are very salty with newbies), also for things with a good rating and comments. Also look at one shot pre-mix concentrates from Vapour Depot they have a bunch of different brands. Darkstar and Chef's Flavours in UK also have one shots premixes.

u/Adjal · 2 pointsr/Scotch
u/sassafrasAtree · 2 pointsr/cocktails

Big subject for debate... however you should always buy the smallest bottles you can. Which always limits your choices to Martini in most places, unless you are lucky. Some say it spoils as quickly as regular wine. I say, keep it cold and it should last as long as a month or two. You can usually smell it when it starts to go off. Vermouth usually gets a bad rap, but that is usually because it is not fresh. You can also try adding nitrogen (

A good read on the perils of aged vermouth is here:

Let's have a little real talk. Are you a drinker or A DRINKER? When I'm taking a flask someplace it's because I plan to DRINK, possibly with a friend. Which means it needs to hold some volume. I have a couple of these:

8.5 ounces = enough for a couple of real drinks.

u/digitalyss · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I'm probably the 30th person to suggest this, but if he's into beer and science and technology AND DIY, you seriously need to consider homebrewing.

You need to figure out if you want to bottle or keg, but I would ONLY suggest kegging, because bottling is dangerous (if you have too much sugar and hungry yeast, your bottles will explode). If you DO want to homebrew, I would suggest getting a kegerator and soda kegs. It's relatively compact, can hold up to 10 gallons if you set up two soda kegs, and has wheels.

You'll need a 6 gallon glass carboy with a lifting harness. I wouldn't suggest using the metal rim grip kind because it chipped our carboy. The nylon harness you see in this picture would be a good substitute, it just makes it so you can more easiliy lift 5 gallons of liquid. You'll also need a bubbler plug, which is very inexpensive. Probably the cheapest thing, aside from the hops bags.

You'll also need a thermometer (infrared is a better option than a dip thermometer because it'll protect your hands better)

If you're going with a kegerator, you'll need CO^2, which they usually sell and fill at the homebrew store.

You'll also need a giant, stainless steel kettle. Actually if you buy a turkey frying kit, it has everything you'll need except a propane tank (which you can rent at the grocery store).

The most important object though, is probably an auto siphon

You'll also need sanitizing powder. You can use bleach, but then you run the risk of bleaching other stuff.

They should have all this stuff at your homebrew store, and definitely ask them for help. They'll also have recipes there you can grab for free, and can suggest a good recipe for beginners based on what type of beer he likes.

I have a stash of Wineskin bags for transporting bottles of alcohol. Maybe overkill, but better safe than sorry.

u/Kilrathi · 2 pointsr/bourbon

Get some Wineskins. They're bubble-wrapped bottle-shaped bags that seal on the bottom. The seal would supposedly prevent leaks but I've never in all my travels (with a lot of bottles) lost a bottle in a Wineskin, though I'm sure it can happen... I have lost bottles wrapped in clothes since clothes shift and bottles smack against each other and break. At like $2 per Wineskin, it's well worth the money. I've had 4 or 5 bottles in a suitcase that way. At the very least, if you do decide to wrap them in clothes, I'd tape them in so they're not gonna slip out of the padding.

u/HotBehind · 2 pointsr/wine

Tough to say as there are so many little hacks. I like these three the most though:

  1. Probe thermometer with temperature alarm. I don't have to babysit my strike or sparge water, and I can set it at 205F with a cover on the kettle to speed up the initial wort boil without fear of boil-over.

  2. Power drill wisk makes aeration a snap. I run it 2 minutes immediately after chilling & transfer to primary, then 2 more minutes ~15-30 minutes later post cleanup and right before pitching.

  3. Nylon paint strainer bag for use as a hop/trub filter and as a racking filter. Post chilling, I transfer my wort into a sanitized bucket through a sanitized nylon paint strainer. It makes removing the hops a cinch without having to fiddle with a hop spider or hop bags. I also place a sanitized nylon paint strainer over my racking cane when I'm transferring to secondary and/or to my bottling bucket.

I go one further. The sanitary option on my dishwasher is awesome, but I don't trust it 100%, AND it's much easier to fill a wet bottle (less foam). So I just got one of those bottle sanitizer pump things, and give each bottle a few pumps of starsan out of the dishwasher before filling.

So yeah, I mostly keg.

u/Mrs_partyrocq · 2 pointsr/festivals

If you are a guy, pick up a pair of these and a few of these. Don't fill up the flask all the way. Walk around a little bit and see how it feels. Once you are in the fest you can take it out and put it in your pocket or your pack and refill your drinks as you go! We do it at almost every fest we go to. Its a little harder for females but you can fill up zip lock bags and put them in your bra for a little push up. You can't sneak in much but its better then nothing if you already plan on sneaking some in.

I bought a pound of this about six weeks ago. There's nothing wrong with it, but I hugely overestimated how much of it I could drink. On the upside, it makes great iced tea, and is wonderful carbonated.

At the end of the day, I like a lot more variety. The additional cost of buying 100g at a time is worth it.

u/Trident2w · 1 pointr/DIY

It doesn't exactly break the bank to just buy one of these, especially if you have to go out and buy the parts for the DIY version anyhow.

u/cephaloman · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife

If you want something for life, get a standard old-school soda bottle from iSi. There are plastic parts on the inside of the metal bottle but they can all be replaced if they wear out. I have been using one for about 7 years now when I make summer cocktails.

u/cryospam · 1 pointr/mead

OK well I'll give you my recipe, here's what you'll need:

1 large stock pot 30-32 quarts is what you're shooting for. I got mine at Walmart for much less than this.

Yeast nutrient I prefer fermaid K but you can use Fermax, avoid DAP for a while it's kinda rough to dial in for a novice and can cause funky stuff to happen.

Campden Tablets

Wine Tannin

Some form of CO2, you can use Wine Preservation spray or if you paintball like me, fill your tanks up at the local place, and just use a regulator to dispense it.

WLP-099 for yeast. You can also use Wyeast 4347 if you want it to finish a bit sweeter.

You need a bathtub full of apples (not kidding) this is about ~100-150 pounds. I live in New England and buy cider apples for cheap money when they're in season from an orchard.

18-21 pounds of honey depending on which yeast you're using and if you want it to finish sweet or dry, I like to use orange blossom honey for this recipe, but anything light such as clover or some wildflower honeys will work. If you go with the Wyeast stuff stick with 18 pounds, if you're using the White Labs stuff and you still want some residual sweetness, go for 21 pounds.

A juicer to crush your apples. You could do this manually, but you will hate your life.

A Carboy stirrer or a Wine Whip You could use a super long stainless steel spoon, but in all honesty these do a much better job.

A big ass primary bucket this is what I use now, but if you've got a pair of 6.5 gallon buckets you're good too. I drilled a hole in the top for my "dry airlock" These open at 0.25 PSI, and they're both indestructible and cheap, plus you'll never have to worry about forgetting to fill your airlocks.

2 6.5 gallon glass carboys (these will be MUCH cheaper locally due to shipping costs)

1 All in One Wine Pump with a 10" house filter setup You can get the 1 and 5 micron filters cheaper on Amazon then the site they link there, and for the 0.5 micron finishing filter you get that HERE

Start with a bathtub full of apples with the stopper in, after the tub is full, fill around the apples with hot water. let that soak overnight to loosen up the dirt and hydrate the apples as well as you can. All hot water, no cold for this. Stir up the apples gently.
Wash the apples in bunches the next day, I have my kids help me with this, any ones with bad spots they put aside so I can either reject them outright or just cut the bad spots off. Cut the apples into quarters, only remove the stem and any leaves don't worry about the core or seeds or anything else. Any bad spots or worm eaten apples throw into the garbage.

Run all of the cleaned apples through a juicer. Put the pulp into your big primary bucket & put the juice into your big ass pot.

Heat the juice to 200 degrees, add 3 to 3.5 pounds of honey per gallon of juice (depends on what yeast you're using) and stir until well mixed (and still at 200 degrees.) This is to pasteurize the apple juice and kill any wild yeast or other microbes. Don't boil it, 200 degrees is fine. You should have about 7-7.5 gallons of juice from a full bathtub of apples plus a crapload of solids.

Add 1 teaspoon of Fermaid K nutrient, 1/2 teaspoon wine tannin, and 2 crushed campden tablets, stir that bitch up good.

Pour that on to the apple solids in each bucket. Mix it quickly, and make sure it's still at least 185 degrees F. This will pasteurize your apple solids. If it is under 185 degrees, then either pour in some boiling water and get it back to temperature OR siphon some juice out, reheat that stuff and pour it back. This is the ONLY time you can add ANY water, and if you're quick with the apple juice you won't need boiling water and it will turn out MUCH better.

Wait 24 hours.

Pitch your yeast. For this brew I make a big ass starter of the WLP-099 or the Wyeast 4347. With 3.5 pounds of honey per gallon plus the 100% apple juice liquids, I end up with around 35-37 Brix, giving me a high potential alcohol. The WLP-099 typically eats it nicely if step fed and aerated daily for the first week to give around 22-23% ABV while still finishing sweet with 3 pounds per gallon of honey and the Wyeast 4347 it will finish slightly sweet at around 20-21% ABV.

Let it sit on the apple mash for 30 days, for the first week use the Carboy stirrer to mix it up good, every 3 days add 1/3 teaspoon yeast nutrient for the first 9 days (so initial addition during creation of the must, and an additional 1/3 teaspoon on days 3, 6 and 9 so 2 teaspoons total fermaid K.)

Let the mash sit unmolested from day 12 to day 30.

Siphon that off into glass carboys for secondary.

For this step I normally pull the mead through a 5 micron and then a 1 micron filter (both in a single pass with my filtration setup) this doesn't remove the yeast, but it makes sure no apple particulate is transferred into your secondary. It will still be very cloudy though, to the point where it is opaque, that's fine.

Hit the carboys with some CO2, either from wine preservation spray or the paintball canister setup like I said.

This is where I add spices and any other flavor. I have made a number of differently spiced Cysers, but my typical secondary includes 1/16 teaspoon of ground cloves, 1/8 teaspoon cardamom, 1/4 teaspoon of freshly ground nutmeg, 1/2 teaspoon of freshly ground cinnamon.
After 30 more days I rack it off that, passing it once again through the 5 and 1 micron filters.

Then I hit it with CO2 to prevent oxidation and bulk age it. It doesn't move for at least 6 months, 12 if I can leave the carboys full for that long. After 2-3 months aging you can swap to a solid bung as you don't need the airlock anymore.

The mead will clear during aging. When it's transparent, it is ready to bottle. I do one more pass from my carboy through a 0.5 micron filter into another carboy, then siphon into my bottling bucket. I don't like bottling with my vacuum pump I suck at it and just make a big ass mess.

Yea it's a lot of work, but it's some of the best Cyser you'll ever have, and it's got one helluva kick so take care when you drink it.

u/chiefkeefOFFICIAL · 1 pointr/Scotch

Agreed here - Highland Park is great for working in the peat and smoke flavors that a lot of other bottles will hit you in the face with. I've had a dram of HP 18 (not enough) and just finished a bottle of HP 12 (one of my favorite daily drinkers) and they're both fantastic. Definitely enjoy this one slowly, maybe take a few drams and get some Wine Preserver and seal it back up if you plan on keeping it for a longer period of time. Maybe try some now, seal it up, and come back to it when you might have more experience with scotch.

Sorry for your loss, but congrats on your bottle. Sharing with family is a great way to taste it and enjoy what's been passed on to you. When my great aunt passed a couple years ago, I was given a great brandy and we all split the Dom P in her liquor cabinet, so that's always a great way to remember with your family.

u/engmia · 1 pointr/DIY_eJuice

One way to do it is to do what /u/PCnerd73 said. I've heard it's used by flavour manufactures and this process is called pre-steeping. You can do it with different stages of preparation (pre mixing your base, different flavour profiles, the whole recipe, etc.) and supposedly results should vary depending on your process. I've never gotten into experimenting with that so I can't really give any more advice.


However as everyone said no matter what you do and what process you use, this much juice will probably be exposed to too much air over time. I had the same attitude as you before (that oxidation wouldn't really be such a big problem for me), but after a period of time it really does become noticeably intolerable and lesson learned there.
Purchase a 50 or 100 ml black plastic bottle (depending on your usage levels, so you don't have to open the "main" jar too often) where you'll keep your liquid for current use, and the rest put in the refrigerator.
You should also buy some Argon ( which is used in wine preserving. You spray it into your main jar once you take out liquid, and put it back in the fridge.
As far as I know Argon is a heavy gas (which should be inert in our case), so what it does it push out all the oxygen out of the bottle, which in turn helps with preservation.


So to sum up all three - argon pushes out the oxygen, you keep it in the refrigerator which is a dark, cool place, so the three killers of e-liquid -- heat, light and oxygen, are being taken care of. That way you can preserve your liquid for a much higher period of time.

u/MBaggott · 1 pointr/researchchemicals

Inert gas in small canisters like this is affordable and worth considering. I'd just get an airtight amber glass container, some dessicant, and fill it with gas and bags/bottles of the chemical you're storing.

u/findar123 · 1 pointr/whiskyinventory

Is this similar to the private preserve you use?

What's your thoughts on how it works?

u/wrugoin · 1 pointr/whiskey

I was given a few air canisters of nitrogen as a gift.

The thought was I could open a bottle of wine, drink half the bottle, and by using the nitrogen, could remove much of the oxygen out of the bottle and preserve the bottle for a 2nd use.

I wonder if the same concept would work to better preserve an expensive/rare whiskey that's a quarter/half full.

u/jhp58 · 1 pointr/CFB

That's what the movies keep telling me!

Honestly though, never put bourbon in a decanter for a long period of time. The oxidation will fuck up your whiskey. I store mine in their normal bottles and sometimes use [Wine Saver] ( to keep them long term.

u/AlbinoWino11 · 1 pointr/winemaking

All you need is this:

And a way to get that inside your keg. Using a female connector to the gas post should do it fine. Or just open the keg up.
If this doesn’t work for you then just get some dry ice - any airgas or boc or any other gas supplier will sell it. Or you can even have it bloody delivered for $10:

Or if this won’t work get some glass marbles to take up the space inside the keg. No air, no problem.

I don’t know what else I can say really - you just have to use your head and find a way.

u/wh1skeyk1ng · 1 pointr/DIY_eJuice

I keep my CXT in the freezer. Even after a year, my last liter (100mg/mL in PG) was still fresh and clear as ever. My current one is close to 6 months in, and showing no signs of oxidizing. I spray a few shots of this in it after re-filling my working bottle. Not sure if it's helping for certain, but I've had ZERO issues with oxidation when using it. I used to have a 120 mL working bottle which started showing some pinkness after a couple months, but I wasn't using the preservative in between mix sessions. Now I use a 30mL nice bottle for mixing, I don't preserve it, nor do I have problems since it gets freshened up once a month.

I know I say it on this sub all the time, but I can't see there being a better nicotine than what you get from Carolina Extracts. I've read countless horror stories about people getting dicked around by Nude Nicotine. (shipping times, incorrect base or strength, leaky bottles, shitty/no customer service, etc) I've also read plenty of other testimonials about people getting nicotine that is brown and harsh from numerous other vendors.

I have no affiliation with CXT, but I feel like if everyone here got their nicotine from them and stored it properly, we wouldn't be having a nicotine discussion every single day. Just my 2 cents.

EDIT: nothing against you or OP, I just went on a little tangent, and also realized OP in the UK so I don't know if he can even get CXT. I would have to imagine there has to be a similar company over there than cold presses their nic.

u/BarryZZZ · 1 pointr/alcohol

I'll assume you are talking about wine, with an alcohol content of less than 18%. Above that level bacterial oxidation is not much of an issue. Yes it is posssible, and not all that expensive

u/Muppet_Mower · 1 pointr/Coffee

Minimize headspace in whatever container you are storing it in. If this isn't possible, check out this stuff called Private Preserve that you can use to replace the air with inert gas.

u/Daft_Hunk · 1 pointr/Whiskyporn

Actually it's not about filling the bottle up with something other than oxygen, it actually works in a completely different (and for a physicist, fascinating) way.

The can contains a mixture of argon and other inert gasses that are much heavier than air or pure oxygen. So when you spray them into the bottle, the mixture sits on top of the whisky, creating a barrier between it and the oxygen in the bottle. So instead of filling up the entire bottle with the mixture, you only need a couple of squirts to create that barrier between the whisky and air.

This is the stuff I've used, good for 200 uses or something ridiculous due to the fact you need such a small amount.

u/intelekchewal · 1 pointr/wine
  1. In my experience, replacing the cork prevents fruit flies and dust, but that's about it. Once a natural cork has been removed and you stuff it back in, the irregular surface allows oxygen to move in and out fairly easily. A silicon wine stopper is far superior in this sense.

  2. Downside is simple - it won't last as long.

  3. My personal favourite inexpensive option for wine preservation is using an inert gas to displace the oxygen in the bottle, like with the product linked below. Oxidization is the main process that makes opened wines go bad. While a little oxygen can do wonders for wine (that's the idea behind decanters, aerators and letting the wine "breathe"), too much can turn it into vinegar. By covering the surface of the wine with an inert gas, the wine does not come into contact with the oxygen, and a half empty bottle will remain drinkable for a few weeks. This is assuming the bottle is kept upright and not moved around frequently. .
u/jarec707 · 1 pointr/SleepApnea

Thanks for your comment. Are you referring to the AirMini HumidX or to other HME? In any event I wonder if using an inert gas in a sealable plastic bag would work. At some point, of course, the cost and hassle of trying to stretch the life of the HumidX or HME outweigh the benefit. Might be worthwhile to experiment with this and a sealable container

u/DaffyDuck · 1 pointr/askscience

Actually, from a fluid mechanics perspective, movement can speed up freezing. If, at the boundary, the temperature is below zero, the movement increases heat transfer. In a river, the movement near the bottom increases heat transfer from the earth into the water. In a water tower, movement along the metal structure would increase the rate of freezing if it is freezing outside. Keep in mind that, as you approach the surface, the movement speed decreases due to friction and that is what allows ice to form. As the ice grows, the surface moves but there remains a layer where the velocity approaches zero.

Edit: here is a real world example. This can chiller spins the can while spraying ice cold water on it. Spinning the can is effectively the same as spinning the water in a large water tower.

So, I make most of my syrups (except orgeat, really), and I've found that these work really well. I also have some flasks, and I use one of those for homemade grenadine as well. And this is what I use for homemade Irish Cream, as well as an infinity bottle.

None of these things are a requirement, my first batches of simple syrup were stored in an empty red vinegar bottle after washing, and my first batch of Irish Cream was stored in an empty Absolut vodka bottle. I just figured I could lend some ideas for if you want to pick up some glass bottles. Naturally, there might be better, but I haven't had to replace these, so I figure they're good enough.

u/EngineeredMadness · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

Edit: Just realized NZ. Have you checked AliExpress, you might be able to get something drop shipped reasonably? Other options are to use a pond pump and infusion stone, or to get an oxygen welding tank. Whirlpooling really doesn't need to be done with a drill FWIW. It's more about getting all the break/trub in one spot so you don't clog pumps. Hop utilization will be just find in a hop stand with some gentle stirring.

Finally, the counterpoint to oxygenation is hitting with a well sized starter. Even if you don't have a stir plate, if you can source a 1G / 4L jug, you can do the "shaken not stirred" starter method, which will minimize the need for additional oxygen prior to yeast pitch.

Still wouldn't recommend a paint mixer. These can be made with not-acid-safe metals and coatings, and who knows what kind of crap may leach out of the plastics and adhesives that hold them together. Sure you can get away with it and it won't kill you immediately, but given the risk, and the fact that it will be used every brew, I'd be a little more selective about my equipment.

There's actually a bunch of these available as "Wine Whip" or "Wine Degasser" on amazon, such as this. NorCal Brewing makes a really nice stainless one that isn't too expensive.

u/Mundokiir · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

Having made mead before, the only reason to stir/agitate is to remove carbon dioxide, or "degas" as it's called.

Are you doing staggered nutrient additions? If yes, then I advise stirring for 5 minutes or so with a degasser like this one which is what I used for my first few batches with great success, but any type of degassing wand from your LHBS will work for this purpose.

If not, I do not recommend daily stirring at all until primary fermentation is completed. Doing so does add risk of contamination and oxidation without any real benefit. The reason you'd want to do it when adding nutrients is because doing so without degassing will cause a huge foam-over. Ask me how I know.

In either case, I do not suggest shaking, or you're going to have a huge mess on your hands. Go to your local supplier and spend the $10-$15 for the proper tool.

I now use a vacuum pump to degas my wine/mead which is more expensive but easier, faster, and less risk of contamination.

Seriously though if you shake an active fermentation it's going to explode on you.

u/rxvirus · 1 pointr/mead

u/SpicyThunder335 · 1 pointr/mead

Two options: wine whip (you can use other things on hand with the same effect like some stiff wire that's been sanitized) and Fermcap-S.

Not really sure how effective Fermcap is when degassing (never tried it) - it's mainly just to prevent excessive foam during fermentation, not while actively mixing it up. Very, very careful use of a wine whip is probably your best bet. However, it's really not the end of the world if you don't degas at all.

We've gotten booze into the most stringent of music festivals this way - the back of the bottle does say THIS IS A FLASK if you look closely, but security usually just sees the orange tube and moves on.

(might not help for a night game in the winter, though.)

I somehow got one of these past security last year filled to the brim with fireball. Just make sure you tape the top because they are not leak-proof.

Was curious, and it turns out that /u/aMiracleAtJordanHare is completely correct

It truly does depend on the security guard you have. My 'never fail' way is taping / trying soft plastic flasks to my inner thighs. I can get about 10 shots in that way.

I read that you like cows, so you should just search "cow décor" on amazon. they have a loth of cute stuff like measuring cups, pillows, and this;

but heres a bunch of stupid crap I like.

brain slide anatomy coasters;

I really like this dragon cookie jar; theres also a tardis one that makes sounds, and a gnome eating cookies.

cool kitchen use stuff;

adorable rug (has matching pillow cases available);

rechargeable batteries. not home décor, but useful;

salt lamp:

edit: im sorry, I dont know how to make the links shorter.

Buy this. You won't be able to in time here, but you'll thank me next time.

Yeah that's a pain...

I bought this for $16.

I got this for like $14 out of Amazon Warehouse. Put it on your watch list and just check once in a while and you can score a deal on it. This takes sanitizing to literally an under-20 minute task.

Bottle labels are expensive every time I've seen them! But those labels are pretty cool on the front of that sub. I wish I had remotely any kind of that talent.

Buy these and bring all the liquor you want

Get some of these bag boys. Put in underwear or where ever else you think they won't check. Diversify locations and perhaps get help from your friends so if one gets found it's no biggie.

Here is the one thing that will fix nearly everything in this thread that people say to “prepare for”. With this item. You are prepared for fucking everything.

I usually buy two about a month before the start of each season. They fit under jorts or khakis alike and helps make new friends everywhere. Wearing this means you dont give a fuck about the game in a hurricane, SEC humidity or that cold shit thats frozen and falls out of the sky (i think its called snow)
