- It is a lot less mess! I would never go back to it, though I got pretty good at it. Better too thick than too thin, you can always add water.

Well - I made 4 liters ready size from about 70 grams of dried chondrus chrispus (that should be around a handful).
But not only does the oranges have different amout of juice - they have also different flavours!
My ready size probably contained too much of different kinds of carrageenan (probably kappa and iota type) 'cause after using it for about half an hour it kind of stiffened (gelled).
It sure made som interesting patterns - but was was not what I planned.
I diluted the amount with another 4 liters of water and it did work a lot better.
But... I probably have to find a provider of manufactured lambda carrageenan. It sure is less mess.
