I have a bunch of Liter bottles with the flip top on them. I've used them a couple times, and
love them on Bottling day: they are much faster than 12oz bottles. However, I believe I am
wearing out the...

I have been using a blow off tube in my primaries (not to hijack this thread) but I don't think

um, I guess I'm too much of a newb to even vote. I didn't recognize anything on the list!! Only
