    First I want to say I lost my litmus paper and I guess I didn't have the PH up enough cause I did three pull and got NOTHING...lmao. I decided to just pour in a bunch more sodium hydroxide and do the pull over. This is the results of my first pull. I started with 437 grams of MHRB. I know its pretty pathetic. The rootbark is 2 years old but idk if that would matter. I went STB. In everthing I read A/B is way better and you will yeild twice as much vs STB. I doubt I have .200 here. I'm just gonna keep pulling. At very least I hope to get 2 grams. What I have here though should be enough to launch the two people I promised to take to the moon.

    I know this stuff is still yellow but its way cleaner then any other pulls I made with STB. It is freeze precip.

    My litmus paper will be coming tomorrow. What are your guys opinion, experience with acacia root bark?

    2nd pull tomorrow hopfully. I'm real lazy .

    My first time making deem I pulled a lot of jungle out too. In fact mine was orange it was so dirty.
    But someone told me how to clean it with 91% ISP. Sorry it was years ago and I forgot how I did it. I found out later that if you do a cold water bath instead of a warm water bath you can get a cleaner return.
    General rule of thumb is pound per pound of Lye to powder.
