Just ordered some Taurine and will give it a try.
Thanks for sharing
Merry Christmas and happy new year. 😀

Re: Christmas Tree Crystals

Thanks!

I just had a go with the amino acid Taurine and it made some interesting patterns too.

Re: Christmas Tree Crystals

I bought them on Amazon. They are sold as food supplements and you can get them in small amounts for under $10. Search for Beta Alanine, L. Glutamine, Taurine, Lysine etc.

Re: Beta-Alanine + L-Glutamine

Good point Pau!

Apparently Beta-Alanine is only slightly soluble in 100% Ethanol and L-Glutamine isn’t so I’m thinking that the alcohol’s presence helps creat...
