Re: [APD] Yeast CO2 in 55 gal tank

Those vinyl and similar plastic caps don't have the polar
molecules that make for a good bond. Liquid Nails works
pretty good but you have to let it fully cure so all those
nasty fumes go away.

Epoxy doesn't adhere especially well, but it gt so darn
hard, it tends to stay put.
