Big Mouth Bubbler seal fix - takes five seconds
« on: April 02, 2017, 01:40:01 PM »
Hi all,

I just wanted to share an easy fix to the Big Mouth Bubbler universal lid seal problem.  All you have to do is invert the silicone seal, then it will not work its way out of the mouth and it makes an airtight seal.

Will have to give that one a try!

I got NB/MWS to send me a couple of the grey screw-on lids for the Little BMB, and those have been working just fine.  One just needed an extra foam gasket to seal tight.

THANK YOU!  I was about ready to throw out the two new units I purchased after 24 hours of fermenting an 11 gallon batch of Citra.  12 hours later the issue of the universal lid rising up and losing it's seal is solved!

I just use a piece of Velcro strip wrapped around the harness handles on each side that just runs over the top of the lid. Keeps it seated down no problem.
