New methoxide mixing procedure
Just added this to my processing page: http://biolyle.com/process/processing.html My brilliant friend Bill came up with this great way to dissolve the catalyst. Just put a strainer in a 15 gal conical tank, fill with proper amount of methanol, add the KOH or lye, and bubble air in thru a valve at the bottom. With KOH, it dissolves within seconds (actually dissolves pretty fast even without the bubbling..)
