Are you planning to use Anhydrous Ammonia? I really don't think so. It is 
really nasty stuff. Extremely volitile. Boils at minus 28 F at 1 atmosphere 
pressure. I guess you are going to buy "ammonia" in a supermarket or some 
such place. That is an Ammonium Hydroxide solution. I don't know the 
concentration. Be careful to watch your pH. This is a strong base and will 
raise your pH.

Please do be sure to report back to us your results. I am very curious to 
know what you will find.
