Hello, first thank you for previous help. I'm drying the oil with a fryer and after 40 minutes at full power (more than 300 ° F) it still has bubbles, is it normal? Is water? I put pictures, thanks

One of the standard ways to check for water is to heat up a frypan to beyond 100 degrees celsius and pour a spoonful or two of oil in, taken from well down in the container - any bubbles will be water flashing off into vapour.

Many of the members here did research on "flash evaporation." Is anyone still around who could help? Murphy? Tim C Cook? Graham Laming?
