I have made 3 batches of 4AD in phlojel using a mortar and pestle. Each time the paste was too gritty to apply properly so I wound up placing the paste in a clear plastic freezer bag and crushing it with the pestle over several days to make it creamy and grit-free. This has worked well but I'd love to find an alternative to spending 15 hours crushing the grits out. Could I just throw the 4AD and phlojel in a blender?
I read a post where a member felt that using an agate vs stone mortar made a huge difference. I tried using an agate mortar but didn't get a better result. Does anyone else think the type of mortar makes a big difference? Thanks.
