I have 40 gallons of bio that I'd like to salvage. About half of it came from the bottom of my finished bio tank but had a hazy appearance and the rest was salvaged from the top of the wash water tote( I was saving my wash water and this stuff settled to the top. It titrates 4 KOH but I don't know how much methanol and KOH to use since its almost converted . It looks like bad orange juice

-bad orange juice! first of all, you have to dry this oil, that will change the apperance. then follow up with the repo.
-the titration you have with oil containing wash water will be meaningless. Tom

Is the water diluting the bio enough to throw off the titration?
