This was my first shot at a batch of homebrew in the kitchen, and i have a couple of questions.

What is the white stuff floating in the glycerin? and is it normal to only use .5ml in a titration test? the oil i used was my own from my fryer, it was used maybe 3 or 4 times, and turned pink for 30 seconds with only .5ml of solution.

Heres a couple of pics, let me know if this looks right.

UPDATE: the white stuff is now gone.....???? its all glycerin and bio now..

It looks right to me, the white stuff is probably some sort of fats in the oil. As long as you know how bio and glycerin on the bottom your doing good.

thanks! i dont know what that crud is but its gone after sitting.
I would guess it was soap. Looks like you got good conversion, If you have some methanol left, do a 27/3 test on the fuel to check conversion.

The .5 titration is very low. My best oils run about 2. Of course the reason is that it is only used 3-4 times.
