Ugh, it happened to me again, and this time I only used the yellow knob. As soon as I clicked on it, it told me that I'd failed to keep the temperature within range - hadn't even started heating up yet!

What do I do :confused:

ETA: so as a symptom of my obsession, I googled to see if anyone else was having this issue... and there are some others, so I guess it's not just me. But ugh, so annoying!!

ETA: It did the exact same thing in Firefox and Chrome. I think I'm cooked (no pun intended) for now...

Hmm. Here's a tutorial for the Swelling Solution: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YxzQaD99Jg0

Thanks, I saw that earlier. I don't know, at this point I'm convinced that it's just glitchy. (The first comment on the youtube video describes my exact problem.) And I've succeeded in making all the other potions before multiple times, so I'm pretty sure I'm heating it correctly...

Well, I guess I should be getting back to studying instead of making (virtual) potions all day anyway :shuffle:

I am having trouble with the 1st part of the Polyjuice. There are two, of course which are in essence two separate potions.

After the 1 hour wait, the time runs out very quickly and you have to heat the darn thing for 30 seconds. I don't know how I can make up time. A glitch as well?

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

Oh God, me too.
But I can't find the proper chapter to collect more of that, where is it?

I've brewed part 1 of the Polyjuice. Now I am brewing the 16+ hour long part 2. How much do I want to get this right?

The nettles? Try Book 1, Chapter 8, Scene 3. (Been doing this all day. :lol:)

PML, checking my blog stats and found that someone got to my blog today by searching "pottermore i blew up my cauldron".

That is funny! I have blown up a cauldron or two on occasion...

NB: if you run out of an ingredient, you can either

(a) buy it in Diagon Alley

or

(b) find it in one of the chapters

If you need help finding stuff in the book, Googling it usually yields results or you can ask here. To paraphrase Dumbledore:

You will find that help will always be given at Hogwarts on FSU to those who ask for it.

I noticed going through Book 1 again that there are some new moments of info to unlock. I've also picked up 3 more galleons so far that weren't there before. Earned 3 badges going back through Book 1.

A youtube tutorial on the polyjuice potion. An interesting and a safe way to deal with that tricky lacewing bottle.
