washed test batch!!

Ok i washed the test batch i made yesterday his afternoon, then i sed a bubble stone and an asthma breathing machine compressor. Bio cleared up in about two hours, a little less. I then filtered with a coffee filter, had some gunky white stuff in the bottom of the jar. I filtered it into a new mason jar, and it looks great! Was the solid stuff soapy residue? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Yeah you did it wrong by your discription. After it cleared you should just pull the bio off the top or drain the glycerin from the bottom. Dont touch the glycerin as there may still be a hazzardous amount of methanol residue left. Let that sit and evap and it will turn to a dry soap.

Sounds like you had a successful wash stage,you got a layer of white stuff on the bottom with fuel on the top.

Did you have about the same amount of glycerin after reaction?

What vehicle/s you intending to fill up once you get rolling with larger batches as washing makes the El Preemo fuel Click the image to open in full size.
