Just be careful and make good cuts, there was a thread here a few years ago about banana washes and they can produce high levels of foreshots. I’ll try to find the thread tomorrow.

Got a bit busy and left the pectinase to work for 2 days :teasing-tease: , all good. Added ec1118 and big pinch of citric acid. It’s bubbling away now :handgestures-thumbupleft:
