broke my last plastic cane this morning. found a stainless steel one for eleven bucks at a homebrew shop!

anyone else use the ss cane? only thing i have to worry about now is cracking the fermentors with it
A barrel of malt, a bushel of hops, you stir it around with a stick
The kind of lubrication to make your engine tick

never argue with an idiot, they'll just drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

Have a beer on me.

Sounds great you know you can make you own from copper also way better than a plastic one

Now if they'd just make a SS hydometer.

  2. Irish Red Rye
  3. Robust Porter

Did the same thing, broke two or three plastics, went with SS...it will outlive me and for less money than the one's I've broke. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!!!

The HB supply co. I order my stuff from accidentally sent me a ss racking cane. Freebie! It's a long one though so the only downer is it's tough to clean.

I also got a ss mesh screen to put over the end of it - far better at filtering out fruit and other random floaties than the little plastic deal I started with.
