Nice detailed write-up, but I think part of the issue here and speaking to what macclellan was referring to is you have a heading titled:
Here are the essential pieces of equipment you will need
I think this should be
Here are the essential COMPONENTS you will need
and you need to add dissolution method to it, since you MUST have a method to dissolve.
Yes, that's right on. Put the focus on function, many ways to dissolve, etc.
Fixed, and fixed. I hope
