Wonderful experiment! Thanks all at Sirius SSW! Glad everyone had a
great time.

I don't normally freeze my paste. I'd mix with lemon juice, 24 hours
later add terps, put in cones and leave them in the fridge. My mom
would normally stash my bag of cones (I put them in ziplock baggies)
right to the end of the fridge. Sometimes when I pull a cone out, the
paste would be semi-solid. A 3-week old refridgerated paste still
gives really good dark stains.

If I were to freeze my cones and need to use one urgently, say less
than 24 hours, could I thaw the paste by putting it in a bowl of hot
water, etc? Will that affect the staining power? If I left a thawed
cone of paste out and forgot to re-freeze it for say 24 hours (and
upon realisation I'd pop it back into the freezer immediately), could
it still stain as good the next time I use it? I wonder if there will
be other significant changes. I have a bowl of paste that was mixed
about a month ago in the fridge, I wonder if it will stain well ....


Singapore weather forecast: Expect happy Mr Sunshine everyday till
