Basics of FSG

I really want to try this out as i know this is great for some. However, to tell the truth it seems a tad complicated...Is there anyone that can give me a completely basic recipe that gives a good consistency for 2c/3a curls? How much to use? As well as this, without any preservatives or anything like that, how long can you keep it for? Does it go off? What happens if you use off fsg? Please help me, good tips, etc etc!
Curl pattern: Loose waved underlayer, a mixture of 2b, 2c, 3a
Porosity: Low
Density: Thick
Length: When stretched approx 5cm above belly button

    It does go off! You can smell it! Never tried it once it smells bad so not sure there. Basic recipe is good, just boil longer for thicker, I use a ton! I have BSL super dense 2c/3a and use a couple palm fulls until it slippery feeling all over.
