What percentage of water to alcohol did you use?
Since I don’t have access to grain alcohol (meaning, I haven’t bothered to investigate if I can get it, and it’s not conveniently sitting on a shelf at the liquor store :P #LazyWizard) I only use an 80-Proof vodka. This gives a menstruum solution equivalent to a mixture of 40% grain alcohol and 60% water.
For others who may be reading, and are curious as to the reason behind the question… more after the cut :)
