    Just before launching the pizza, lift one corner and blow under so it floats like a hovercraft momentarily. Works like a charm for me.
    Either you’re pulling our legs or you’re full of hot air - literally.

  • @Botch, @Canugghead: One of you folks seriously needs to demo this sorcery.
  • My tip is to use gaffer tape rather than painters tape.


    gaffer tape is great for a more permanent label, but if you are reusing your canisters and putting in things that spoil in a few weeks, painters tape is the better option.



    ^^^ This.

    This is an incredible life hack, thank you for sharing.

    I have been searching forever for a method to create a FOUR, yes 4, cheese blend.  If you come across one please post up.

    You can skip the painters' tape and write directly on the plastic lids with dry erase markers.

    I’ll get the ball rolling....

    Keep a Sharpie and painter’s tape in the kitchen drawer. Can label any and all items with date to keep tabs on how long it’s been in the fridge or freezer.



    I do the same thing when I harvest yeast when I'm making beer. Store it in mason jars and right down the date it was harvested, what strand of yeast it is and how many times its been used. I've got like 10 jars of yeast in the garage/beer fridge and tis easy to lose track of what each one is and how old it is and if I need to make a starter to wake the yeast up before brewing a new batch.
    Potential Hijack:  How do you harvest your yeast? Do you 'rinse' it?

    I've either made an initial starter and saved some for later, or just caught it out of the fermentor and reused it for the same or similar beer...

    But the reason I ask, is I had a lid really pop up on one of my Mason jars - in the fridge... so apparently there was some fermenting left to do...


    I rinsed it once and it was a bigger pain than it was worth.

    Now, I just leave a bit of wort in the fermenter when I rack it off to bottle. Swirl up the wort and pour it into sanitized mason jars. Don't seal the lids down all the way. I tighten them up, then back it off a bit. This allows some gas (CO2) to escape. Stick it in the fridge and a few days later, tighten them down. I suspect that's what happened to you. I've had one pop up before after it took it out on brew day and allowed it to come up to temp. I think I might have tightened the lid down as soon as I poured it in and didn't let it "gass" out in the fridge. I've never had one pop up in the fridge.

    I brew 2.5 gallon batches and can usually fill up 4 8oz mason jars.

    I have a 14 gallon cronical fermenator, is it as easy as dumping some of the trub/ yeast into a sterile mason jar leaving the lid loose (a couple days) and refrigerator? The beer forums are so intense! I always pitch a new yeast but I have always wanted to reuse

    Yes, its that easy. But keep an eye on how old the yeast is. If it gets too old, you'll need to make a starter to wake it back up. The calculator on Mr. Malty can help you figure out if its too old/how viable it is.

    Yeah, we had the Bengal in the house for the better part of two days.  He usually hunts the neighbor's cat Walley outside to fight him, catch birds, climb trees and houses and stuff.  So stuck inside he tortured our other three in the house, knocked stuff over and howled.   He's not a regular cat.
