Hi Rox,

I have no idea - I seem to remember something about bacterial action  
on the red iron but can't remember where

The first thing to do is empty the bucket and make sure you get any  
settled material from the bottom. Sieve through 80 mesh to get a good  

If you do try adding more iron just take a small amount like 2 cups  
and test it that way.
