whats are peoples thoughts on draining the tiger nut liquid from the cooked tigers (messy job) into bottles and adding some additives/powders such as GLM , keeping in the fridge and using to re-hydrate air dried boilies ?

or is the liquid/gloop good enough to use on its own as a soak

Will cooked tigers chop up in the bullit blender or coffee grinder, I'm not sure if they will break the cutters..?

First method was soak in warm sugared water for 24 hours and then bring to the boil / simmer for 20 minutes, back in a bucket with quite a bit more sugar and leave, nothing really happened although they still worked in a fishing situation.

Second batch was just soaked in water for 48 hours with nothing added, water was discarded and nuts put in pan covered with fresh water and boiled / simmered for 20 minutes, back in bucket hot with nothing added and sealed with block paving on top.

I later found the bucket was allowing air to escape hence the block paving.

Recently had this problem Neil with Tiger Nuts from Maltby's, it wasn't the nuts it was me, they wasn't air tight, the next batch I made sure they was and a lovely slime within 3 days.

I added stuff to the first batch and nothing to the second batch so will try a third batch with added bits but resist the temptation to have a peek.

Both batches worked.

Reboilng won't do anything chap, and will most likely just detract from them. Just use them as is and do them differently next time

Thanks, it did occur to me that the recipe of full fat coke may have changed and that could have effected the results.

I have been preparing my tigers like this for years and this is the first fail, so may have to change tactics if a reboil and sugar add don't work.

They have reportedly changed the amount and type of corn-syrup used in its make up due to the dangers to health attributed to it.

I can't remember where I read it, but I think they started the substitution this year so you may have got an all new improved recipe, other suppliers are more at liberty to change their recipe as they desire. An alternative reason could be as pointed out earlier that there was some contamination somewhere.

As I say they've always worked in the past with coke , and I do like the way they turn out with coke it's just this one time they haven't worked and can't fathom out why ?

Ditch the coke next time, they slime so much better with water. Plus they are tigers, they need no help at all

The preservatives and maybe the low pH of the coke will stop fermentation.

Sorry to raise this post again but I've just prepped some Tiger nuts in full fat coke to use on my local river.

Howeverr unlike previous batches these haven't snotted up after a full seven days, they are recently bought nuts from Maltbys any ideas why they haven't turned ?

Was thinking of re boiling them and adding some sugar ?

That's free of choice. A couple of spoons is enough.
To get slimy tigers you also shouldn't forget to clean the bucket with boiling water in advance.

Also, i don't at sugar but prefer a dark belgian beer.

That's old news now mate But old, is always gold. I've never smelt that smell on any lake I've ever fished. And you know, you would smell it. So not to many bother.

Since back then, I've been paid pretty much, to play around with 'stuff'. I love playing around with 'stuff' to.

Thanks Ken, much appreciated. That looks good enough to eat . Has big carp written all over it.

Next time you get some of your fermented soy sauce. Add a bit of 'Maggi' liquid seasoning to it. Add it to other stuff to. Don't go mad with it. But it's very good stuff.

Costs about £1.40 a bottle. Cheap, carp and barbel love it. Roach love it on maggots to.

Great post...Try it with crushed tigers to really get them going. They can become totally preoccupied so fish a hookbait comprising of two or three halved tigers.

Similar to how I have used it and was never convinced so never persevered. I have on a couple of occasions mixed hemp into it on margin spots and the gloop stays gloop for a very long time, makes total sense really. Same as peanuts with all the milky white goodness coming out of them, never had much joy on these either so never persevered, others rave about them

Yes mate. But on a big scale. I have a lot of use for tigers, on the river. Not on a low stock pit when the carp are feeding though.

The slime, or spunk as I call it . That's where it's at. Put that stuff into the water, carp will come.

So you separated the slime from the nuts Mark?

I always let my tigers slime up, and even add boilies at the slime stage to steep/soak it all up, but never considered separating it for use elsewhere.

Unfortunately mate, in my opinion, You have missed a trick already. Next time, timing is your friend. I have a day off today, I was meant to be fishing, I'm going later instead, so I will explain for you. What you have there, is boiled water from tigers. It's not really anything special, honestly. You can make it into something really special though next time. If you had left that water with those tigers, and added some sugar, stirred it all up and put the lid on. In three days under warm conditions (radiator winter), the water would have turned to a slimy gooey mess. This stuff is special, this is very special indeed. It's probably more electric, than the tigers themselves. It's the ferment stage. It's drugs to carp. It only lasts for a couple of days, so it's all about timing. After this it will go alcohol smelling. It's still much better than what you have there, but it's lost a lot of it's effect. The tigers themselves are okay for ages. We're not talking about tigers though, we're talking about the water. When you know you're going fishing, make the tigers so that you have that stuff for the first night of your trip. How you get it onto your spot is up to you. But it's dynamite, trust me. Most of the stuff that is, you have to create yourself like this. You can't buy it in a bottle, it's just not the same thing.

Not by you mate, but I was told when I posted on this bait forum not long ago, that I should cite evidence for my posts, or the information would not be believed. You need evidence. Well now they all know who I am, I can. I'll let you into a little secret. This fish below, is pretty unknown, over 40lbs, and was caught with the great help of what I mentioned above among other things. It's from a low stock pit, that's not meant to be fished. I was catching herds of monster bream, so to stop them, I used a tiger trick, I gave them tigers to fill them up and slow them down a bit. It slowed the bream down, and attracted this carp among others. I carried on making loads of tigers, but freezing them for winter, did not want to fill the carp up... Only after I had made tonnes of 'drugs' with it first though were the tigers froze. The 'drugs' were taken straight to the pit, out in a boat under darkness, and poured all over a long bar (it sinks well). Sent them absolutely mental. They dug the bar right out, took inches from it's entire length. Catching them was fairly easy afterwards.
