DIY Walnut Stain - Refinement for Next Season - February 2022

Last Fall and this past Winter, I made my first batch of Black Walnut stain using found walnuts in my backyard.  I made a slurry and let it stand for a few months, then bottled it up with a 1:1 ratio of filtered slurry : rubbing alcohol.  I gave away a couple of pints of the stuff to family and one of my brother-in-laws gave me some feedback:  See below.

Note to future Jake:  Collect and use more walnuts and reduce the rubbing alcohol by 50%.  Use 2:1 walnut slurry:rubbing alcohol this time.

Something else to add to my 2022 to-do-list.
