    Default How do I ??


    I need to fill a hip flask with brandy.

    The flask has an opening much smaller than
    the spout on any of my funnels ......

    How do I fill the flask without spilling booze ??

    Roll up a post-it so that the sticky is to the outside, and the small
    funnel end is smaller than the flask opening.

    A bartender's bottle spigot would probably fit yur flask. It's pretty
    simple to form a narrower tip for your existing funnel from aluminum foil.
    Or if you have a turkey baster. I woulda placed the flask in a glass bowl
    and pour freehand directly from the bottle... any spillage in the bowl is
    sot's treat.

    Go and get a 20cc syringe from your local feed store.

    find some gum or rubber tubing that will fit in the bottle, and stretch
    over the funnel?

    Buy another bottle?

    find a container that the flask will just barely fit in, and submerge
    the flask into the booze.

    Find or make a funnel (like cutting the top off a water bottle) that
    will fit over the OUTSIDE of the flask's neck. Use tape, rubber or
    leather as a gasket, as long as it is tight.

    McGyver several sizes of straw together, in reducing diameters, using tape.

    How big is this opening, btw?

    With a hypodermic needle? One of those plastic squeeze bottles
    with the narrow spout used for ketchup or cake decorating? Wilton
    makes the latter. A perfume funnel?

    Ask your pharmacist for one of the syringe-type things they use
    for giving liquid meds to babies. That might be narrow enough.

    I have had two flasks, both of which came with small
    funnels. Assuming you don't have one of these, a quick
    google search will find you quite a variety to pick from,
    or you might indeed roll a post-it note or small piece
    of wax paper, or buy miniature bottles of whatever
    your booze of choice is, as their opening is small
    enough to fit fairly well into the flask. As a last resort
    you might fill your mouth with the booze, then insert
    a straw into your (filled) mouth and expel the booze
    into the flask opening through the straw. But you
    probably want to save that flask-full for yourself only.

    I was thinking to myself.. Yah! Here's a guy that thinks like me. Right
    up to the mouth/straw thing. You lost me there.

    If someone is hard core enough to mouth the alcohol into the flask via a
    straw, he needs to seek treatment. The post-it approach is something
    I've done with a small flask. The spittle laced alcohol is not.

    I have a regular sized funnel (small) which could be used to fill a
    flask. But when I needed to fill my glass "candles" with oil and
    didn't have a tiny funnel (which my grandmother would have called a
    "perfume funnel") - I used foil coiled into a funnel shape. It
    worked.

    Buy a mini funnel... I got a set of three in different sizes made for
    filling perfume bottles etc. (I use them for my spice jars...)

    A real photography store that sells darkroom equipment might have such
    funnels.

    It wasn't exactly a serious suggestion.

    Make a funnel out of tin foil.

    Chuck the flask and just slurp outta the bottle.


    Being a brandy drinker, that should be second nature to you.

    Pour the brandy into a cup or bowl.
    With a spoon, pick up some brandy and pour it
    from the spoon into the bottle. It'll be
    slow going to fill the bottle a spoonful
    at a time, but the time will pass quickly.

    Use a pour spout on the booze bottle.

    Use a bulb type turkey baster.
    Most everyone has one and it should be
    small enough to fit the flask

    Get a coffee stirrer or thin straw or bamboo skewer. Stick one end in
    the flask, without touching the sides of the mouth. Pour the brandy
    slowly *down* the stick. With care you can spill not a drop.
