I am about to get a large batch of RK05 packs, so I am interested in the
details of this.
First, what is 'burning spirit'? (I assume this is a straight translation
into English of some German term, but not knowing German... :-) After poking
around with Google for a while (hampered no little by the fact that it's the
name of a band, and also a term in World of Warcraft :-), it seems like it
might be acetone?
