Precipitate in SDM

Hi everyone,

I'm new to the forum but have a quick question about making Slow Dry Medium (SDM).

I'm following the recipe, and making the version for white SDM (basically everything except clove oil). When I mix it all together, I end up with a white precipitate in the medium.

I do dip the container with my mixture in warm water to help it mix together. I wondered if the heat was causing this, but it's not really extreme.

I have made the mixture in the past with the same ingredients, and the same process, without getting the precipitate. Now I have made it twice in a row and had this result.

Has anyone experienced this? Would it matter at all?

Below is an image showing this. You can see it is a cloudy mix instead of a clear solution which I would normally get.

Thank you,
