What flavours would you use with the bm1 from smurf I'm gonna be using it on a 400 acre pit which get heavily weeded in the summer so would think there is plenty of naturals

No worries, I was desperately trying to figure out what I had said wrong!

I would up the pre-digested or add 1% salt and somebetaine, maybe some chilli or garlic

When i mess around with this mix later in the year one thing i want to try, is to use Selenavite E at 2% and use it along side Spray Dried Brewers Yeast or Kelp meal to make up the rest.

Maybe you could try that first.

sorry but post 117 was a mistake on my part there was nothing wrong with it at all

Maybe up the pre-digested, that's what I would do


persaonally i would leave the base mix well alone but if i was wanting to add extras to it i would take a kg of the standard recipe and then add my glm/liver powder/ robin red or what ever to it

Leave well alone. The BM1 need nothing at all. Tweak at your peril!

That's why I was thinking more along the lines of upping the levels of one or two of the current ingredients instead of adding something new. If so, which ones?

If not, I quite fancy some robin red in there.

BM1 is still the bassis of my current mixes

I still tweak it from time to time but never too far from the original as it has caught so many fix from every possible water you can think of both in the UK and Europe

CLO should be OK, a little more oily so remember that when adding liquids

As to the missing 2.5%....a good natural additive or two will help give out a little more attraction

Fair play, looks like a great straight forward mix.

Sometimes I think I go way over the top on many different ingredients when perhaps it isn't necessary

Short answer, not really. The recipe as Smurf tells is it as near perfect as it gets!

Ken, do you not think ingredients such as betaine, chilli or salt might be an advantage?

Can't see anything wrong with replacing the cede with clo

As for an extra ingredient...... The choices are endless. Have a play with some things and have fun, taking into account the other ingredients of coarse e.g soluble levels etc

I'd add an additive, some robin red or GLM or both

Firstly, apologies for digging up an old thread.

I have been making my own boilies on and off for years but have always used pre-mixed base mixes such as Big Fish Mix, but now I have all the proper gear, air gun, compressor etc I want to have a go at making my own base mix so I can keep the cost down. Found this thread and decided to give this recipe a go:

BM1 (basic HNV mix)
30% LT94 fishmeal
15% Maize Protein Meal 60% (supergold 60)
13% Egg based bird food like CeDe
10% Semolina
10% Soya flour (heat treated)
8.5% pre-digested fishmeal
8.5% Calf or lambs milk powder such as Vitamelo
5% Equivite

After a bit of research it appears you can use Selenavite E at half the inclusion level of the Equivite which isn't a bad thing as it's much cheaper to start with.

So, if the Selenavite is put in at 2.5%, instead of the 5% Equivite, what else in the mix should be increased to make up the 2.5% without ruining it.

Also, can you substitute CLO for the CeDe or are they two completely different things?

May well be daft questions but as I said, never made up a base mix before and don't want to cock it up.
