Give Aussie a try with FSG underneath - I like the results from that combo a lot.

I also put gelatin in my FSG; 3/4 tsp. in a batch I make that starts as 1/4 c. flax seed to 2 c. water.

I love the first one and wish I could pull that off (sigh).

Do you put anything else in your FSG, or is it just plain?
