I would go get the notes, but there's a snake in the shed again at the moment.

When they're happy and at ease they move slowly.

If Startled, they could easily smash up my glassware.

Usually they are gone in the morning.

Randomly browsing around led me to to the posts of "futurenobellaureate".
Two or three of his fifteen posts are quite entertaining :) :

Hopefully he was home schooled in a cave by leprechauns lol

Perhaps even more tragically, the response was about 100 posts and we have just added two more !!!!!

For sheer variety in responses

Ok, maybe not quite qualifying for "best of". The subject material itself precludes that. But the range of responses does go to show what an eclectic bunch we are.

Yeah, that was fun.

Quite simply, the ion is a jerk.
Love it!

Ammonium bitartrate is even more insoluble than cesium bitartrate:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solubility_table
(1.88% at 10 C and 2.7% at 20 C)

In general bitartrate salts of monovalent ions are very insoluble, although sodium is (usually!) the exception. I believe lithium bitartrate also has high solubility. Zinc forms double salts; magnesium inhibits the deposition of tartrates. Quite simply, the ion is a jerk.
Hexamethonium bitartrate on the other hand has a very high solubility because it is a double quaternary ammonium salt which cannot form a tightly bonded crystal structure with bitartrate ions.
It's possible that lysine or arginine could be used as the base, though, since their bitartrates should be quite soluble. It should be possible to obtain these. But I still think sodium bitartrate can work pretty well as long as you're careful with the stoichiometry.
Calcium nitrate might also work, since cesium nitrate has roughly the same solubility as cesium bitartrate, whereas Ca(NO3)2 is extremely soluble.
