No problem Rob just for the little guy to find bottles and caps at a reasonable price for just a case or 2 can be tough, if you do a little research you will find the premium caps are not cheap but about the same price for the better choices plastic or metal.

SKS bottle and packing sells caps a 144 per bag closest to a case of bottles VS buying 1,000 at other places and Zoro sells a case of 4oz bottles (160) for About $130.00 shipped

I just thought I would share the new plasti dip method I tried. Really like the seal I got from this and gives a cool look. Not that looks mean much. As far as the caps go. I suppose the old adage applies, "There is more than one way to skin a cat"

I respect Mark June and Law dog and appreciate the feed back all the way around. Happy skunking.

From what I have seen nothing stops the smell of essence. You can slow the escape down, but it is coming out with time. I have always put my bottles in vermiculite. Rather than dirt or Kitty litter. It is much lighter and mad to absorb. It will absorb the smell for a while. Sealing the bottle is a good start, but it will still stink in time. I put a 4 oz jar in a quart jar in a ammo can with caulk on the seal and it still stunk in time. I have dealt with well over 1000 oz and one thing I don't like is jars with large diameter lids. It is just more seal to give out. I like wine or whiskey bottles with a metal lid with the plastic lining.

I like the dip idea it might help get it there and slow down the "genie" a but from getting out of the bottle how hard is the bottle to open with that on there or does it twist off with the cap.

So if you just take a needle and remove it from the skunk, do you know if it has mustard in it or not? Or what would you classify that as?

I remove the pods then tap them it will get you a lot more then just tapping the sacks from the back (poke and hope) it leaves you blind that way, with the pods removed you can milk the pods a lot easier and the "bomb is defused" and you have the pods to grind or make into sweet skunk.

Mustard will be filtered out after its removed with the essence and delt with, it sucks so don't try to do a lit at once it's like working with teargas in large quantities. Your going to stink so have a plan before you start!

I like the story when a old liquor bottle was used, and shipped between two jurisidictions.......post office and Liquor boards got involved......sender and receiver were both in trouble.
