IA, did you brew the polyjuice potion yet?

Not yet! Have you?

I am missing a lot of ingredients.

Haven't gotten that far, my cauldron is all hogged up with the swelling solution. :lol:

Thank goodness my anatomy exam is all done and over with... free weekend to waste on Pottermore :respec:

I don't think that we will be able to brew Polyjuice until we get further in the book. We need way too many ingredients, including a Slytherin's hair. I haven't noticed an opportunity to pick one up yet. Has anyone?

Whatever it requires, I hope it doesn't take a month :cold:

They've been awfully slow releasing the chapters. :rolleyes: Like doling out candy to the kids.

I absolutely hate potions - I can't make them at all. :(

ETA - Okay, finally got it brewing for 51 minutes. If I fall asleep, does the potion spoil?

Be patient and let me know if you need tips.

BTW, I was wrong, all the ingredients needed for the Polyjuice are available by now. LMK if you want tips.

Making the darn Polyjuice now. Looks tricky. I've confused Fluxweed and some kind of grass already.

Thanks. :) I'm hoping I don't fall asleep too early so I can finish the potion after 51 minutes is up. For good measure, I went back to Hagrid's house and collected more dried nettles. Seems I need a lot of those. *sigh*

Whaa?? The swelling solution told me I'd failed as soon as I turned on the heat on part II, didn't even get to heat it up to the correct range :confused:

Yes, I messed up that potion so many times and had to go back to Hagrid's house a lot.

In part 2, use the yellow burner to turn the heat on, not the red one. The red one is harder to control and likely the temp got too high very quickly. And be ready to regulate the temp very closely, every few seconds within that narrow range.

Anybody that goes after this Slytherin's hair will be turned into whatever's left of my exploded cauldron.

:shuffle: It wasn't yours, Matry. It was a boy's.

Be careful with the Lacewings bottle, a slippery sucker. I just dumped an overdose of this into the cauldron and messed up my Polyjuice. Take 2.
