    Is there anything that you add to slow down the setting time of fast set.

    I remember a while back one member posted a similar thread. SALT was mentioned, but now I cant recall if that slows it down or speeds it up! I'll have a browse thru the search facility and post back

    Sugar keeps it, salt sets it but note its not an exact science.
