Shaking it obviously–but the lazy side of me wants a faster/easier method since I mix a ton of various tester-sized bottles (5mL, 10mL, and 15mL - glass and plastic). I’m wondering if anyone has any solid methods?
I’d love to get one of those vibrating vortex mixers, but they’re pretty expensive ($100-$200).
I can’t use a frother because the mouth of my glass bottles are too narrow, I can’t fit the frother in.
I don’t want to use a magnetic stirrer because it seems like a mess… Putting the bar into the bottle, using a tweezer to take it out, rinse the bar and the tweezers, do another bottle, etc. I see how this would be effective with large single flavor batches, but I’m using really small tester bottles.
I bought a rubberized claw (to hold the bottle) connected to a metal rod and used a pretty powerful drill to spin the bottle… That didn’t work.
I don’t like ultrasonic cleaners. They imo dissipate top notes because of the heat, and give the bottles/caps a weird smell.
So I don’t know what to do at this point, any tips?
