Mark, A while back, you had mentioned being able to find plumbing fittings to use a carboy for adding methoxide. To this point, I have been unable to find anyplace that sells carboy caps which connect to plumbing fittings. Do you have any further information on where these can be found?
Thanks for all you do here.
