Round up a few bowls and a strainer in your kitchen. In addition, you need some more unusual gadgets:A Very Accurate ScaleI chose this one.
My criteria were 1) It is accurate to 0.1 grams, and 2) It looked more like a kitchen scale than a drug scale. It also had a bunch of nice features (counting, for instance) that I may never use.Immersion Blender
You can use a regular blender, but the immersion version is nice because you get less air whipped into your solution.Syringe
(optional)I got these the same place I got the chemicals (below).
I have also heard of people using traditional squirt bottles, like the red and yellow ones that are traditional for ketchup and mustard. The syringe makes me feel more like a real chemist.
For ingredients, you will need:250 g Carrot Juice
( some nice Odwalla Juice from the local store
)500 g Water
(from my local tap)2.0 g Sodium Alginate2.5 g Calcium Cloride
These last two are both a bit unusual. I ordered from Le Sanctuaire
, which is based in San Francisco. There are other suppliers, like Texturas
(in the US). L'Epicerie has a fabulous looking pipette
for making cavier on an industrial scale.
