Well I just poured the plate to season the silver bath. It went better than I thought. I was a little shy on the amount but other than that it went pretty well.
Robert, yep I have a hydrometer. Use to make my own beer....
Gotcha on the filtering. Everything looks right based on what I've read. So now I just need to try it out. I plan to just do it over and over again to get use to the process. Hopefully I'll actually see something show up on the plates
