It is REALLY quite easy to make from scratch.
But it does take some time and does save a BUNCH of money. I also HIGHly
recommend mixing the Potassium Oxalate from component chems and save even more
money. It too is easy.
Yes, you can heat the water too much. Heat
will turn your ferric to ferrous before you have a chance to use it.

Oh, lord no. Not for a minute would I attempt to make
anything from scratch-- except maybe a pound cake.
No, I'm just trying to mix up the ferric oxalate
powder with distilled water and would like to know the amounts to use-- water
to powder, and can you ever heat the water too much? Just having a hard time
here, so wonder if I'm doing something wrong (as usual).

I've read again and again that this was something to buy rather make because of
the time it takes and that the relative cost savings is neglible.
Did I misunderstand your question?
