Bag feeding help.
« on: November 03, 2012, 07:35:36 PM »
I am trying the bag feed method. Syrup is running out of the bag when I made the slit. What is wrong? Bag too full?

I fill the bag about 2/3 of the way and made the slit like this guy on youtube

Back when I did them, I just made them half full.

Most info on baggie feeding tell you to fill them 2/3 to 3/4 full. Every time I filled them that full they leaked all over. I did find that only filling them half way was the ticket, like Allen said.
