I have a heated ultrasonic cleaner. I run it 50c for 2 hours. Let my bottles sit over night. Then put them back in for 2 more hours. Works really well for me. They say that will steep like one week in just 2 hours. 4 hours 2 weeks. Anyways then i let them sit till i decide to grab one lol. Just something for you to think about bro
The one I got is very small. No idea why it says 2L - it’s like 1.1 L at most…
I also think I need to read the manual. I set it for 45oC - then let it run for an hour, when I came back it was 57oC I gotta figure out why hehe I’ve just been checking on it, then turning temp off when it reached ~48 or so - it kept rising a bit though
I’ll be interested to hear what you think of it. The one I linked isn’t very big either. Says it’s less than a 7 inches cube (6 3/4" L x 6 1/4" W x 7" H). Was curious how 2 Liters fit. Also has a 30 minute timer.
My guess is that after an hour the heat from the water vibration has completely overwhelmed the heat from the heating element. Mine has no heater, but after an hour of running constantly the water is hot to the touch. Probably not 57C but easily over 40 (and it started around 20ish).
My ZENPRO milk frother works great. Here’s a sample picture of what my milk frother can do. I purchase it on Amazon and oh, here’s a discount code: ZENPRO15 (code still works. my friend used it yesterday).
I want that coffe right now uhh looks so good. I still use mine occasionally but stick with a rotary tool and a magnetic mixer for the most part. Of course my milk frother is a cheaper version I am sure…bed bath and beyond 10$.
For someone who is interested I saw on the trade thread someone was getting rid of a brand new Magnetic mixer.
I use a milk frother as well, and seems to work very well with 10ml batches. 30ml and above it tends to bog down a bit unless my VG is warm. Which it is, because I keep the bottle of VG in a coffee mug of hot water to keep it that way. Then it helps kickstart the steeping process along with the air. I might try one of those paint mixers though, sure would be nice to not have to heat the VG unless I wanted to. And my frother is a 4 1/2 star well reviewed one from Amazon…I think it was around $12-13? Not pricey, but good power reviews. I have been looking at others, but don’t want to end up going through 3-4 and spending $50+. Like throwing away money. Still a lot better than shaking til my arm falls off, and does blend even when bogs a little, just a little less enthusiastically
Got a cheap one it’s so underpowered. Stirs my coffee pretty good. I mix in bottles is there something that will fit in a bottle and mix? Heard about a paint mixer on Amazon. Will it fit? If so please post link. Ty in advance
I use the frother blade primarily. It will work up to 120ml but it takes longer. My juice is generally around 85-75vg. I’ve been using the norpro frother blade attached to the badger motor for my 60-120ml batches. Badger motor is some stronger but norpro blade is better. I do mix anything over 15ml in beakers.
