Definitely mate, can't wait to give it a try and roll my own baits.

I'll probably have a little play around with attractors etc in small batches.

It looks like a good basemix to get started with there is always scope for the odd tweak with the more I learn I suppose.

Cheers for your help

@SamBarley, Yes mate, you are quite right to point that out. I Should have seen that myself. I agree if you take out the Selenavite E, there is not really anything you can replace that whole Vit/Min content with.

@gav1986, I messed around with BM1 and BM2 at the end of last year/beginning of this year, and settled on using the base mix as it is, but with CSL and Molasses as attractor liquids. I did start to add things like Betaine and Robin Red, but in the end i stopped playing around with them, so i could concentrate on the mixes i was putting together for myself.

I'd have to check but i think i settled on BM1 base mix, With CLO instead of Nectarblend, CSL, Molasses MSG and a few drops of Butyric acid. Don't discount BM2 though. I found it to be a cheaper alternative to BM1, and quite liked it once i sorted out a hardness problem.

Both are very good base mixes. Alot of peope owe Smurf a big

I won't be taking it out now I've realised what it does.

Nellieman - what attractors have you used with the basemix.

Yes i understand that. But if he is swapping it out, why not use something else that may replace some of the vits and mins hes using.

Yes, to take the Selenavite out leaves a big hole in the vit min content, but he asked what he could swap it for.


I wasn't comparing anything.

I understand now, to remove it would remove a high amount of vitamin and minerals. So it's probably better to keep in.

What attractor pack have you added to bm1?

All do completely different things.

Selenavite is used solely for vits and mins, the other ingredients can not come close to the vit/min content that selenavite contains

The other ingredients have other reasons for use, pointless comparing them, its like comparing sprouts to beef

If i was to swap the Selenavite E out, i would probably swap it for another additive that is also high in vitamins and minerals, such as a seaweed product or brewers yeast or something similar. You could also swap it for a spice or herb additive such Fenugreek or Garlic. or even Paprika or Chilli Powder.

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.
