I did an infusion using warm water and mint, and warm water and greek basil. They both came out well but there is too much gas in the water, waiting a while lets the gas escape and the taste to be clearer.

I made the Bananas Justino using Agar clarification. The main change I needed to do was boil the agar in a little water instead of alcohol. It worked very well and I posted about it on my blog here:

Thanks!

Any particular reason for us fuge-less NOT to use the Agar clarification technique and achieve a similar result for say the Bananas Justino?

I do think that is a possibility. I remember McGee mentioning that possibility to me several years ago in a different context. I don’t think N2 will work. My impression is that Nitrogen cavitation happens at much higher pressures than we use in an ISI. I believe the efficacy of N2O is due to its high solubility, and the change in solubility (hence the formation of many bubbles) when the pressure is drastically reduced during venting.

Love this site.
