slight defects in the OD of the tubing. Anyone that has trouble getting these to seal may have

These have 2 different tubes one inside the other. An inner tube that goes all the way to the

the top of ...

Another reason to go with bottle dregs is that you can get quicker results than commercial
pitches.I have read that roselare can be rather lackluster on its first pitch and/or take a
long time to deve...

nice yeast cak...
