You brought up one other question that perhaps someone can answer:
When I was reading hoosier's blog earlier he mentions using Cotton Candy flavoring in place of EM. Did I read that correctly? I ordered the EM since I wasn't sure, but I noticed the vendor I ordered from had the Cotton Candy cheaper by volume than the EM. Would it be used in the same way? Any need to dilute or add anything to it or just use it as is?
