Good solid advice from her and always enjoyed her writings even if the topic didn't interest me as her words seems so liquid and something natural about them like she was there face to face.

Re: Got Any Tips For Re-soldering A Cap ?

That's what I thought. Enymes are currently being enjoyed here by a few members and I suspect more will be embracing them as their usage makes the mashing process less labor intensive.
