what you don't say Paul is how much sulfur you used on that first attempt. I recall making sulfur ambers using ordinary plate glass forty years back. I'm not clear at all that you need the absence of nitrates to do it. I would think that saltcake would give you some fining assistance if you tried it. I don't do it simply because the color is not to my taste. I would imagine that Helmer has lots of formulas for it.
