hey Mrnewbie,

Nice to see you on this forum as well

I hope you can get those Nitrates.

PS the link you posted on the other forum seems to be what you are looking for. I would suggest emailing them and checking if its pure potassium nitrate.

But maybe someone here will lead you to a cheaper place

Good luck

I can't find the post, but I think Rex was writing to someone and may have gotten the information you are looking for.

It would work but you are paying $7 a pound delivered. Why not go to www.gregwatson.com and pay $2 a lb + shipping which is going to be less I'm sure.
