    How many times do you burp the blix during the 6 mins process?

    I use Jobo cpe2 and having a trouble with blix leaking. How many times do you burp the blix during the 6 mins process? Thanks

    I cannot help you with your question, but I would like to nominate your thread title for the APUG "Hall of Fame".

    Also, freshly mixed blix is much more gassy and requires more burping than used blix.

    Never? I didn't realise that you needed to! Isn't that the whole reason of the membrane cap, to allow for the pressure build up?

    Can I ask you why do you shake your blix?

    I drilled a small hole in the center of the red cap. It's autoburping now
