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

@ Chuffy, think he already did!

While your there Smurf, getting back to my original query.....

So, if I use Selenevite at 2.5%, which of the other ingredients would you increase to make up the missing 2.5%?

Some blood powders are not very digestable so don't count on it for any amino acid content, having said that the mix is good enough anyway

Try wheat germ if you want but it can make a soft bait even softer (althoug the blood powder should help with that) so don't buy a sack load without making a test mix

Betaine
Salt fishmeals are already quite salty
Chilli again though try a test mix or two, impossible to recomend levels as different suppliers provide different chilli products.
Salmon oil keep levels sensible 20-30ml per Kg of base mix should be plenty

Amongst its properties salt is a palatant Don't think you will need any more but you could change some of your salt from above for MSG (which is also a salt, just a different type).

Has that helped or just added to the confusion

Sounds good too, whatever your favourite options are. I like GLM too but it costs more than Belachan

Belachan and/or L030. Go natural, although having said that Monster Crab and Shellfish at low levels takes some beating in a fishmeal. Sorry to contradict myself but those two together have caught me the Lions share of my fish (with a good base mix of course)

Not sure if you will agree with this smurf but here is what I would do-

Use selenavite at 2%- this frees up 3% so I would add blood powder at 2% (should sort the flaa profile out a little????)
I would then add 1.5% wheat germ for digestion (ok so it is 0.5% over)

As an attractor pack I would add-

0.5% betaine
1% salt (has a good effect on aminos)
4% chilli powder

As a result I would do away with a flavour and add some salmon oil

Maybe add a palatant in too

I can not see these extras hindering the effectiveness but maybe smurf or ken can put me straight

Flavours are a personal thing. If it was me then I would look at natural attraction, I am a big fan of L030 in both liquid and powder form

In that case, do you need a flavour?

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
