Hi group,
I have questions regarding media for storing genitalia.  Do most 
people use glycerin or glycerol?  Does it matter?  Are they the same? 
They appear very similar.  I have seen (and in print) and heard of 
both being used.  What's the story?  I discussed this with Andy 
Warren before and he uses glycerol.  Don't worry Andy, I'm not 
ignoring or discounting your information (much appreciated), just 
trying to expand the knowledge here ;-)   I'm still new to the whole 
gennies thing.  TIA for any help.
Good day,  Rich
