#### #**1**: FSG help please!

So i tried to make FSG tonight. I did it first with 1/4 cup golden flax seeds to one cup of water, I couldn't strain it no matter what I did. then I did 1/2 cup to two cups water, tried straining it through panty hose and couldn't do it, then i did the same ratio and took it off too early, strained, and put it back in the pot to heat but it didn't thicken up.. what consistency am i looking for?
