*Imprecision and Becky are hardly besties, so she heats the potion water to approximately 85C (fish-eye bubbles) casts Wingardium Leviosa on a single Jobberknoll feather to drift it over the centre of the liquid before releasing it, then uses a Pasteur pipette to draw off 4ml of honey water and carefully pours it, in a circular motion, around the edge of the cauldron. She stirs, counting under her breath a three second circuit, as instructed, and measures out the powdered Vampyroteuthis, sprinkling it as evenly as she can over the entire surface.*

"Next, stir counter-clock wise twice and then clockwise twice. Then, separate the White Daisy petal from itsstem add both to cauldron. And finally, when the petals and stem have dissolved, wave your wand"
