|Hot Water (125F or 52C)||750 ml|
|Potassium Metabisulfite||25 g|
|Potassium Bromide||25 g|
|Water to make||1 L|
|Cold Water||1 L|
|Sodium Hydroxide (Caustic Soda Flakes)*||56 g|
*Sodium Hydroxide may be substituted by Potassium Hydroxide – 50 g.
(Ed. Note – Sodium Hydroxide added to water gets hot. Using cold water is important, and use a container that can take heat – Pyrex is good. Be careful of any splatter.)
