Cheers, just weighing up a few options before taking the plunge and rolling my own. The selenavite could be swapped for something like kelp powder or Glm I'm guessing?

Its a vitamin and mineral supplement made for horses. Some would say it makes a difference (me) some would say don't waste your time with it. Either way it is one of the better vit/min supplements to use in base mixes, so either use selenavite, or drop it altogether in favour of another additive/attractor.

Search for Selenavite E instead, but use half as much. A 500g tub is enough to do 20kg of BM1.

Thanks, would you also use talin with a savoury flavour such as anchovy?

It depends how dense/heavy the other ingredients are- w germ is buoyant.
I'm gussing start with 3% with this bm1 mix and work from there.

Talin is my sweetener of choice

Yes mix the flavour with the egg before adding the base mix

Cheers Sam, the flavouring is mixed in with the egg? Should I use something like sweet ade with liquid flavours?
What kind of % would you use wheat germ?

First of all, I would certainly get a digestive aid in there, wheat germ is a cheap one with plenty of info available on it.
Even more important at this time of year.

Flavour wise it is worth using a sweetener with one, inclusion rates are on bottles.
Better still forget a flavour and add some garlic or chili instead- cheap and very effective

Sorry to bring up an old thread.

I'm looking to roll my own, using smurfs bm1, at this stage I won't tweak it at all.

My question is about flavour/attractor. Do I only need to add my flavour, such as scopex or a fruit like nutrabsits wonderfruit? Or do I need to add anything with it?

Never rolled before so just need pointing in the right direction and ill try and work things out myself.

Can you give inclusion rates in a 1kg base mix?

2.5% betaine = 25 grams

That much betaine Chop it down to 0.5% ... 5g is sufficient, MAX 10g.

I divided the mix that smurf posted and divided it by 9 (9eggs) to get the 1 egg mix - i used 1 large egg and it was perfect , not sticky at all . I used nectarblend instead of megablend , that was the only difference to original recipe
