    Hey there fellow homebrewers.
    I was wondering if some of you tried to source your homebrewing tools on alibaba.
    Like for example buchner vacuum filtration setup,
    or sterile bottle top vacuum filters like these:

    Joan Lab 500ml Bottle Top Vacuum Filter Manufacturer - Buy Top Vacuum Filter Bottle,500ml Vacuum Filter Bottle,Vacuum Filter Manufacturer Product on

    No idea about quality/cracking resistance, so I was wondering if anyone tried something like this or you strictly staying with popular brands

    I wouldn't
    sterile filters are cheap, legal and widely available
    so why cut corners with something that can send you to ER with infection?

    I think he is talking about the buncher filter setuo itself. If not though I would not recommend buying filter membranes from anyone other than a reputable source

    Yes but unfortunately for someone who is eu based, its not that great deal with shipping costs plus import tax.

    I tried a Chinese Alibaba source for lgd-4033 and so far I'm getting the runaround. Not sure about filters, but I don't know if I'll use Alibaba again for anything depending on how this pans out.
