I've been meaning to bump this thread all week. I found it the week before--and made a little more of the gel. Only used it once. I think the fresh makes better gel than the frozen. I was afraid it was going bad, so I made the rest of my package into gel. I haven't used it yet, but added some gelatin as my thickener. The hydroethylcellulose didn't really act like it does in the FSG for me.
I'll have to try this batch. It's MUCH easier to make then FSG.
