Thus is kinda what I was worried about, potency loss.

Will try a soda bottle top.

And I thought it was just me. A momentary loss of muscular coordination. A few extra foot-pounds of energy per second, per second.

Both caps have failed on my bottle. When the main cap fails you can no longer build up the pressure required to squeeze and push fluid into the measuring compartment.

Maybe Five-Star needs this information.

Edit: Just notified them of this thread.

It's happened to me. IIRC two liter plastic pop bottle caps fit on it.
Like my snazzy new avatar? Get Sons of Zymurgy swag, here, and brew with the best.

It's happened to me too. My LHBS actually sells new and better caps for that reason. I don't know why Five Star hasn't upgraded to a better quality cap yet. It's really annoying.
