Results from the pepsin experiment

You can see that the first 3 tubes (on the left) have cleared (3 only partially).
They all started with the enzyme pepsin and differing amounts of acid.

The other 3 tubes (on the right) are still cloudy.
So pepsin alone, and acid alone, do not cause clearing. Nor does the control with neither.
