as previous post, on the 16th i grew my first batch of gel balls
initial test shows a some improvement on consistency on grouping and distance of each shot fire,
same night i have moved the get into a little container, put a layer of tissue on top and put the lid back on, shakes it around for a little so the tissue sucks up the left over water.
repeated that a couple time to make sure its mostly dry, then put it inside a dry bottle.
i know (at lease from what i’ve read so far) best way is to store them with bit of water inside the fridge, but i am curious to see what happens if left dry, and how long they take to shrink back down to little balls again, so i left them sitting inside the bottle in my room.
however until today they haven’t seems to shrink much, so i decided to use them up and see how they perform now, and LOL did the consistency drop
some actually came out in little pieces, distance and accuracy is all over the place, and it would randomly fire 2 gels at the same time in single mode.
So i now know NOT to leave the gels sitting dry
but, what is the maximum time frame i could leave a batch of gel sitting dry before using them up?
and if i store it properly with water and inside the fridge, how long can i leave them in there for them to still be “fresh”?
