I got a new Big Mouthed Bubbler with the new strap design that secures the lid.I have to say I never had had problem with the previous design and the lid popping off because I just used the adjustable straps to secure the lid. The new design has created an actual lid strap as a stand alone velcro/Fastex buckle piece. Since the biggest complaint people have with the design is the lid popping off this is an obvious solution but a heavy handed one from a design point IMO.
Heavy handed is an apt description.
Given that a screw-on lid is a pretty simple design; it also feels like doubling down on stupid.
Something else to sell. I also wondered why they don't make a screw top
Looks to me like some kind of bdsm/brewing fetish device...
hahaha i'm not goin to be able to look at it the same way now danny
How much do they cost? Just curious
The 6.5 is $35. I got my first one years ago for free as part of some deal. I have 5 gallon glass one that is really beautiful as well.This is the far easier to deal with solution using the same strapping that they now provide.
Here's my alternate design
Whatever works! I have the original plastic BMBs from prehistoric days; tops didn't blow off, but they were infamous for air leaks. Best solution, and I tried a bunch, was copious amounts of KegLube.
Much more elegant than the strappy thing IMHO.
It’s about to get medieval on your wort.
Kinky my wife would love it
Me did step away from big mouth. Me do use the speidel fermentors.
