Hi ladies, I just made my first batch tonight and have yet to try it out. The first time I did it, it wouldn't strain. So then I tried again and it seems too runny. I later saw this post on Pinterest that had several tips & recipes for FSG. One of the recipes is a no stir method in which you put the seeds in nylon and let them steep in the water. It looks like doing it this way you can let it cook longer and get thicker. Has anyone tried this? Does the thickness or the FSG make a big difference?
