didn’t bring my KOH to NAMA, nor did I try the moonshine, which actually was available. Bin there, done that.

No ID problems here…this is a white phalloides. Even smells exactly the same as the green ones, kinda sickening sweetish decay. Yummy.

Hate to let the cat out of the bag…

But Debbie’s KOH was replaced by Noah at the NAMA foray with some moonshine that C. Schwarz was distilling there. Said manufacturer was creating spirits to be sold and generate income to pay for philosophy lessons given by Mr. Molter who has a very reasonable rate of 25 dollars per hour.

This may part of the ID problem.
