Bubbles in pit fill

Post by screenman » March 31st, 2015, 11:46 pm

If this is a problem for you try this easy trick, hold the bottle top pointing towards the ground and gently and slowly turn it anti clockwise 4 or 5 times, this makes the bubbles screw to the top of the liquid, going clockwise takes them to the bottom. Since starting this I have not had one air bubble in my pit, so simple.

Do people in the southern hemisphere have to turn the opposite direction to get the same effect?

If you have bubbles going to the bottom that is a remarkable feat that defies physics.

The bottom is the top when upside down, or is it.

I didn't want to waste resin so I drank three pints of beer to see if screenman's method works. I drank the first pint while twisting the glass clockwise and the second pint while twisting the glass counter clockwise. I stood on my head while drinking the last pint. I don't have a definitive answer but I no longer care. Screenman, I'll be sending you the bill for the three pints and will expect to be reimbursed promptly. You can write off the expense as a research expense. :D

Was that proper beer, or that light fizzy stuff?

If by proper you mean a warm stale ale with non-filtered cigarette ashes floating on top, no, we leave that to you Brits! I don't know if you are aware of it or not but "craft" beers are a big deal here in the US these days and Oregon has as big a variety to choose from as anywhere I guess. Truly it would be a rare occasion for me to have a beer but I'm told there is now something to please everyone. When you come for a visit you'll have to pop in on one of the local breweries, or perhaps The Beer Stein where you will find over 30 varieties of beer on tap plus over 1000 varieties of bottled beer from all over the world. It's really quite impressive even for this teetotaler.

Funnily enough having a pub lunch the other day I came across Rogue Amber Ale, from Oregon. Even as a non tea teetotaler I was not brave enough to try it.

I would give you a like, but seeing as you have more than me I have decided not too. :D
