An open-mouth jar sterilized with alcohol doesn't need rinsing. You inspired me to try Mason jars for FSG - and I like them!

The squeak test and float test are baloney - your observations about how your hair behaves are probably spot-on for judging porosity. Hope the Gelatin PT was a success!

Mine can flash-dry with the full packet of gelatin, so I usually use the "half packet" recipe or 1 and 1/8 teaspoons gelatin. If you are using vinegar or citric acid in the PT, try leaving that out.
