Has anyone got any uncomplicated boilie recipies using ingredients that i can get either from a supermarket or animal feed store ?

I'm going to be looking at making a few of my own this year for the first time and im getting weighed down with complicated recipies.

Yes you could do. Change it for anything you like really. Sardine and Anchovy is my favourite fish meal too.

On the second mix would it be suitable to change the poultry meal for sardine and anchovy??

I mixed up this base mix today and found the mix very sticky, sticking to the rolling table a lot
I tried leaving the mix for 10 20 and 30 minutes before rolling it was either to sticky or to dry that the gunned out sausages fell to bits when I tried putting them on the rolling table, any help would be great?

Think I see what you mean. The additives all do slightly different things within the bait. To be honest if the base is good like the recipe above then you shouldn't need to add much. I tend to add 1 powder attractor like nash squid extract or robin red, krill etc, a bulk liquid food (molasses and anchovy sauce being two of my favourites) and a flavour/sweetener. The cajousers are good and sweeten/flavour the bait at the same time.

For example: 500g base mix +7.5g of squid powder+25mil of anchovy sauce+2.5mil of sweet cajouser and 12 drops black pepper oil.

No reason why you cant mix fishy with cream or fruit flavours.

Cheers smirker, I'll take a look for that, I guess what I'm looking for are the reasons behind the different additives as there are similar flavours in different styles.
ie. cajousers,elites, oils
Do you need to add the other ingredients like liquid foods or natural attractors and what are there purpose are they required ?
Really just to get a handle on it to give me confidence when I make it.
Like I say I know a lot of its trial and error to which I'm perpared to do.

Jay Riders E-books on his site (books on carp) well worth a look. Cheaper than buying a hard copy. What do you want to know exactly? Inclusion levels of attractors are on the bottles?

Do any of you experienced home made boillie makers know of any decent books on the subject ?

I have used nutrabaits base mixes to some success but now I have more time I would like to start experimenting a bit more, what I find most difficult is knowing what size quantities I need to be using of the various oils, cajousers, and elites, none of this info seems that available other than a few recipes on various portals to which I don't want to do the same as.

I know a lot of this is trial and error which I accept but being in the same ball park would be handy.

cheers for any help

Yes. BM1 can be rolled for about 4 per including eggs etc if you shop around. Maybe less.

Have you found that it is overall cheaper to make yourself 10kg of boils rather than buying from a company? Thoughts?

If you are having trouble with the bm1 being too soft for your particular application, I would recommend swapping the soya flour for rice flour or maize flour. This made the necessary difference in a basemix I have used for quite a few years to good effect. 2-3% blood powder seriously firms up the bait (I would think whey gel or blood plasma is comparable). Another simple trick is to sieve the mix for the hookbaits and boil those 30 secs longer than normal. Usually makes them a bit firmer for bit longer.
