Try clicking in the middle of the flask, to pick up.

I too cannot pick up the flask, I have clicked all over it and it will not budge, I uninstalled the game as I thought it might have been a glitch reinstalled it and still the same

Guess I will add my name to this list too. I have placed the burner under the flask and lit the burner. The egg and water are added to the flask.

The potion is green and boiling, but will not allow me to pick it up. I get the same wheels indicating I need to do something else.

Per the WT, I have done everything I needed to do.

If someone finds the solution, please let us know.

I to have the lovely boiling green goo in the flask over the burner - but can not
pick up, get wheels like others.

Hope someone and solve this problem (glitch) soon, can not continue the game
as it stand now - very frustrating!!!!!!

I seen this problem posted earlier so was dreading getting to that part but I've just finished that bit and was able to pick up the liquid okay.

Sorry wish I could be of some help but it sounds like you all have done what needs to be done and so there's nothing I can suggest.

If you back out of that scene with the bunsen burner, what does the hint button tell you to do?

Will try another option - perhaps there is something else I need to do first.
At this point I have the following items in my inventory - New Life Symbol, Old Life Symbol, Red Lake Souvenir, bottle with wax, honeycomb, ether, and lighter.
Should I still have all of these things or have I missed using something?
Any ideas would be welcome!

Memebillie, I don't know if this will make a difference, but did you look at (click on) the Venus flytrap in the previous room? It's on the left and you get a comment like "This plant needs nourishment" when you click on it. Maybe you have to "notice" it before you make the potion.

Also, you say you have a lovely boiling green goo in the flask. Is it actually green/brown or bright green? If bright green, the potion isn't finished.

I can't think of anything else you might have missed, based on your inventory.

burf90 - Thanks so much for the ideas. However when I click on the Venus Flytrap, the message I get is the plant is on it's last gasp!
Still does not change anything in the other room with the flask and burner.
Guess it is just time to give up and move on to another game.

I'm sorry that didn't help. The only other thing I can think of to try is to uninstall and reinstall both the Game Manager and the game, then download the game again (Game Manager reinstalls itself when you install the game.) When I do this, I uninstall in Safe Mode, reboot, turn off my anti-virus, redownload & install, then turn on the A/V again.

Did you update all the usual - Flash Player, Shockwave, DirectX, Java, etc.? Is your Windows up to date? Do you have the latest graphics card drivers?

And you can always contact BFG Customer Support (Click the green envelope on the right side of this page). They have always been very helpful and knowledgeable whenever I have contacted them via e-mail. (I've never used the Chat feature, so I can't comment on that.)

Good luck!

I was stuck at the flask also. It would not react so I tried placing the new life smybol as a last ditch effort and it worked. I finally finshed the game

Try adding other things to the potion, such as the ether.

That's exactly what I just did! Touched the new life to it and it was ready.
