That's cool as sh*t, I'd take this over Law & Order any day.  I guess the reason I don't watch tv is that all the good stuff came and went before I was born.  cheers, j

Wow Captain Pike (Jeffery Hunter) as the bad guy!

Quinn Martin produced some great TV shows back in the day; The Fugitive, Twelve O'Clock High, The F.B.I., The Invaders, The Streets of San Francisco, Cannon, Barnaby Jones...

Tom, I'm jealous.  I'm sure you've been over the hump to visit fruita/grand junction; science isn't that popular over here.  ;D

OK, I feel like I owe ya a better answer....here's 500 ml. of 85%...

You may not be able to get this from Cynmar. If my memory serves me right, the only chemicals the public can by are calibration buffers and stains. If you have an account with the and convinced them that you are not a terrorist, you can get all sorts of stuff that I had to steal from the chem lab when I was a kid.

It is good to have a lab and an account with Fisher Scientific...

Yeah this has been my experience in the past, with a number of other companies.  There is a business that I can order some things through; I've not tried to get acid from Cynmar yet. I can visualize a kid having to stealing stuff from a chem lab, that's very funny.  I did finally order some though it won’t get here till Tuesday and I was hoping to brew today.  Thanks (to everyone else too) for the help, j

Yesterday I thought I'd check at a "grow" store to see if they carried phos/lactic acid.  :D  There's nothing like having a 20yo, (new)hippie treat you like you're a moron and/or a terrorist.  After making a huge scene, telling me that "acid should never be put in a beer...you should never drink that stuff," I left without finding out if they carried the acid or not.

Maybe they'll ship some to you? I also get my pH meter storage and buffer solutions from them.
