methyl alcohol (MA) into the filter before you start, so it's wet.
next part, cover the funnel with plastic wrap whenever you are waiting for the
filter to finish. This minimizes evaporation.
mixture to stir it and pour ' of the fina into the filter, wait, repeat until
the bottle's empty.
Put 1 ml of MA
into now empty vial, shake and pour into filter. Repeat once for total of 2
filter with 2 ml of MA from a syringe. Spray the edges of the filter paper and
wash the powder into the center. Repeat for total of 4 rinses.
will now be very clean and white. This is methyl cellulose. (Note 2) Throw it
away. Keep the liquid. It should be between 25 and 30 ml.
This is the
fun part. Add 10 ml of distilled water to the liquid. Then, carefully, using a
syringe or an eyedropper add about 5 more ml. When it starts to turn white,
stop. The slower you do this next part the better the result will be. Add a
couple more drops and put it aside for a while. You can leave the cap off so
that the MA will evaporate. You will see crystals forming. You can add a
couple of drops of water an hour if you want. If you do this slow enough you
could get almost 100% conversion.
full of crystals slowly add water until the volume is at least 150 ml. Let it
sit for at least an hour.
funnel and coffee filter on a large container to catch the waste water. Pour
the crystals into the filter. Rinse with distilled water at least 5 times.

totally dry, scrape the dry powder into a clean vial and weigh it. I got 1.8

I have 1.8

Add some oil.
Pop it in the oven and let it melt.
Fill it the

Pop the vial

I tried this
stuff. I think it's much less painful than regular fina. Kinda like a 'smooth
mellow blend, with a hint of a woody aftertaste'

Note 1: If
this is the last time you do anything like this, you don't need a bottle
ruler. But, trust me, you'll be doing this again. So, cut a piece of paper.
Add 10 ml of water to the bottle. Mark the paper. Repeat. Wash the bottle with
methyl alcohol and dry in oven at 175 F.
Note 2: I
dried and weighed the methyl cellulose. It came to 1.0 grams. There is 1.1
grams of methyl cellulose in a cart so 100mg has passed through the filter and
is still in the fina. It will get washed out later when we rinse with water.
Note 3: 175 F
is a good temp for warming things up. It is enough to boil methyl alcohol used
to clean glassware but won't burn your hands too much. You should always have
an oven thermometer to be sure you're getting the right temp. These are less
that $5 at the supermarket.
Note 4: The
use of a monster syringe, in the picture, is optional. It's easier to filter
with a smaller tube, but I'm lazy. Also note the small 25g 1' pin used to vent
the bottle while filtering.
Note 5: The
recommended sterilization at a hospital is 15 min at 250 F (in an autoclave).
I allow 30 min for the bottle to warm up and 15 min for the actual
sterilization. Someday I'll accurately measure the time it takes for various
size vials to heat up.
