Default No more lighter trouble

I go through one of butane lighters every couple of months. The 'clicker' thing always to seem to go at the wort times. So, while getting a CO2 tank filled at my local welding shop I saw one of these. I'd forgotten they even existed. I feel like an idiot not to think of it before. Kicks arse and came with 5 extra flints. Second brew day with it, and I couldn't be happier. Should last me ages.

Old school is the new school. Good on you. I think I should toss one my in my kit.

Funny though I do see folks use them on occasion on brew day....to light the torch that they THEN use to light their turkey fryers.
Like my snazzy new avatar? Get Sons of Zymurgy swag, here, and brew with the best.

I gotta tell ya, just between us girls, that Revvy is HOT. Very tall, gorgeous grey hair and a terrific smile. He's very good looking in person, with a charismatic personality... he drives like a ****ing maniac! - YooperBrew
