    She-who-must-be-obeyed sent me to the local gocery shop to pick up some whole milk and diapers for Mr. Smellypants, so naturally I also picked up this posh little stainless steel, cooking mug with integral litre measure. And thats how much it takes. Going to hack saw the handle off as it just takes up space, and use the handle for the Trangia style kitchen set I have instead.

    Damn, my missus is gonna have a fit. I just got one of them Glogg Wide Necked 1 litre stainless bottle, a Tatonka Stainless Steel Handle Mug, and I know is not very bushcrafty like, but it do give me something to do, I got a Hohner Pro Harp in the scale of E, errrr, that's a harmonica by the way. I been playing since I was 11 years old, and I was getting a bit fed up of just having my old trusty Hohner on a D. I'm actually not that good at playing.

Then I measured out an individual servings of my brew concoction into several bags, squeezed out the air, folded the flap, rolled them up and secured them with a wire tie.

    I've got ten brew bags in the box plus a hand full of tea bags and a cup a soup and there is still room to spare. In pre mixing my brews this way, I've not experienced the suction effect or had to cope with the faffage you get when trying to spoon various brew ingredients into my cup, in the wind. I just remove the tie, unroll the bag, place the mouth of the bag inside my cup and tip in the contents. No mess, no waste.

    Might be something you could try or not.

    Good luck.

    Damn fine idea - simple really!! Thanks for that. >C

    But doing that could also earn me a clout from the Ban Hammer, so I won't.
    LOL - just to make us feel very smug:
