Threading the lid sucks with the cane hanging out.

Turn the bottle instead. :)
I'll talk to my doctor about giving me a third hand. One to hold the lid and two to spin the fermenter.

 ;D Alright, you got me there.
I guess I could have one of those kids that people are always talking about. I hear they work for nothing.
No they don't!

A buddy of mine asked why I didn't put the hole for the cane in the center of the cap. This would make threading the cap onto the fermenter easier. The reason I didn't is I was worried the small gap between the two holes would crack after a while. I figured with the frequent cleaning as well as the stresses from the cane and the hose barb it would be a matter of time before I was replacing the cap.

The two holes I made are located where the injection molding flashing is removed which made it easy for my forsner bit to get started.
