Experiment: Extreme cycle

The only problem I might have is getting my hands on ammonia. But I'll start scouting around, I'm sure I'll come up with something

He doesn't have any He and I were discussing how to get him some but the shipping part of the equation makes it silly expensive.

Experiment updates for the last couple days - just holding as far as I can tell. It could be stalled. I am not prepared to declare it stalled without a very protracted period, however. I will wait it out.

Hi tommy didn't see your post. It's very difficult to obtain here. I phoned the local builders merchant and he said he reckons you can't get it here because you can make bombs with it or something.

You will see soon enough that all the quality stuff you need in this hobby are in America.

Yeah I'm definitely not ready to declare it stalled yet. I'm hoping that things are just so off the chart that I'm not noticing minor changes (crossing my fingers)

I've been doing 1/20th reductions but still not getting much useful. Nitrites seem higher than mathematically allowed, but that's not news.

I'm still giving it at least another 7 days before I take action. I won't take action lightly and contaminate the experiment.

...Bless my kid, the patience of a saint
