Silicone grease

Recommended Posts

Evening all

 

So after scrabbling around in the garage for about an hour I still cant find my silicone grease i use to grease the lever after a backflush.

 

I usually buy from bella barista but there out of stock, done an internet search and it doesnt seem ready available, can anyone provide any suggestions?

 

Thanks in advance

Can't you just buy a 5kg pot & leave it in your will for future generations?

I think that's what Mildred did! It's crazy how little you need compared to the pack sizes it comes in.

I am going to leave my tub to the forum - and its future generations ;)

A pleasure and yes, bartering is good. I’m just swapping beans with a Norwegian via Third Wave Witchteln (pending the announcement of their Christmas exchange).
