  1. It doesn’t really matter unless it’s a boiling flask or vacuum apparatus. Those need to be a bit thicker and stronger for obvious reasons.

    As far as acids and such, glass is used because it’s pretty unreactive. Otherwise the reaction with glass would ruin whatever chemical you were working with.

    Programming pays better than chemistry anyways FWIW

  2. I like using really thick Flasks:

    ^(from) **flask** ^(import) **Flask**

    That way is easy to read what I’m adding to my distillery.
