    preserving your powders


    hey guys,

    i moved about a year ago and can't find my friggin vacuum pump sealer so i am going to buy another.

    there's this thing called a pump n' seal on the net. it's manual, ie. looks for all the world like a basketball inflator. Funny thing is it pulls a better vacuum than the powered ones and you can use it with any jar that has a top that seals.

    you can also us this thing with any ziplock baggy. if you're clever, you might even figure out how to use this with conversions.

    yeah, i know it sounds like i'm pimping this thing but i am NOT affliliated with this thing in any way.

    oh yeah, you can also use it to marinate meat fast. i know, i know, it adds a few grams of sugar. give me a break guys. a few grams won't kill you...

    I have one too, it sounds all good but is generally not needed. I use it to store hygroscopics, like thyroxine and such, but AS's and PH's are so insoluble that water from ambient air won't hurt much. As with all 4-ene-3-ones, light is the main enemy. Just store in a cool to cold, light free area with the lid on tight. Thanks for the meat tip, I might actually get my 65 buck back out of it now!

    65?!? i only paid $20, including shipping.

    what about the little envelopes that sledge puts the powders in? no lid but it is in a cool dark place.

    ya, 65, I got the fancy B&D version and got ripped I guess,
    I don't like the way he sends powders but you know it's cheap for him and he can pass that to us in his prices. I seriously doubt you get even a 1% loss of potency in the brief mailing excursion. I restore them in amber glass with a piece of parafilm around the lid if I'm gonna store it awhile.
