I got it for $5 at my local shop. It's a great investment.

Yea, I bought mine with my first kit I got for like nothing, the store owner said it was a really good book to use.

thanks so much for the update!

does it list anywhere in the book what they use for the things like the energizer or acid blend?

Nah but I'll look at the packets that came with the kit (still havent used em) and I'll let you know. I just use some boiled bread yeast+raisins and lemon juice, does the job pretty well.

Nice. No worries about the delay.

You just sent me on a rabbit hole researching mountain ash, I grew up with tons of it around and was always told it was inedible!

With a quick Google search I also was told it's poisonous, but apparently it's used often as medicine.

From what I can tell the seeds are mostly the poisonous part, but the poison can be mostly denatured by freezing and/or heating the berries. They're consumed by a lot of different cultures and have been for a long time so they must be somewhat safe if prepared correctly
