I am just getting into yeast slanting and ordered a bunch of stuff I need, like vials, from a company. I also included a bottle of ethyl alcohol in my order, since every single slanting howto mentions using it to sanitize your SS wire for innoculating. I just got an email from the company today stating the following:
Thank you for your order! Please be advised that due to restrictions on the sale of chemicals, we cannot ship chemicals to an individual or to a residence. Therefore, item CHE-82434 Ethyl Alcohol, 95% denatured, 500ml <H> has been omitted from your order.
Does anyone know either, where else I can purchase ethyl alcohol, or something I can use instead? Can you use Isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol?
