Nor sure about Nutrabaits, you can get forfor syrup which contains PPC

The mainline Multi-Stim looks VERY similar to me

Like Ken said, Iím sure it will be about under some guise or another, with carp tax

You are both correct. Nutramino was re-labelled Minamino. Same product plus carp tax! OK, not very altruistic but the world and his wife did the same and contunie to do so.

Nutramino/Minamino:



Multimino was indeed a redish/pink liquid that was much denser (in water) than Nutramino. This could be observed in tank tests where the redish liquid would pool on the bottom around a free offering or a hookbait.

Nutramino/Minamino is much sweeter.

I seem to remember that Mainline offered a very similar product, though I cannot recall the name.

I'm confused now, hope i still have some in my shed to satisfy my mind

Nutramino was a dark stinking liquid, high amino

The multimino in the top picture was pinkish liquid as i remember containing PPC, Phosphorycolamine, fosfor syrup blend i would say

They were both out together, i used them for quite a while, rolled a lot of bait with them in, otherwise I'm going nuts

Nutramino is/was rebottled Minamino. I don't know what Multimino is/was. Originally it was labelled Multimino (PPC) (see photo)



It then changed its labelling to just plain Mutimino though the PPC component was mentioned as an ingredient. Confused? Me too!

Not sure about that?

I will see if I have some left in my shed later today

Nutramino was the liquid food, the dark one with spleen and liver etc

Multimino was the sweet one, fosor syrup type plus a few bits, pinkish liquid

I am talking Nutrabiats here

I believe the thread was bumped back up because it was claimed that Ambio was just multimino / fosfor syrup but then it was explained that It was not, far from it, a liquid food

Wrong way round mate. Nutramino=Minamino.
Multimino=PPC=Fosfor Syrup, and was a part of Ambio.

I would have thought the Nutrabaits Nutramino was a more like for like match Ken? spleen and all the horrible bits, dark stinking liquid.

Minamino is basically Fosfor syrup to my understanding

I see Dave has bumped this 2-year old thread to post that I have been wrong in my assumption that Multimino-PPC and Ambio were the same product. Dave has assured me of this and I am happy to accept his assurances. Though it is not an excuse, I am not/was not alone in believing this to be the case. My sincere apologies, Dave.

I think the majority of the bait buffs would agree that Minamino was not the Golden Elixir than we at first took it to be. Our own bait buff, Serenity, has ocassionally called out this misapprehension.

I'm curious now, were you supplying carp Co (or other bait makers) or was ambiol a copy/imitation?

After all those years of innovation, searching for new materials and new ways to use them, are you still developing stuff in your retirement?

And finally, what's your take on the ridiculous amount of packaging in use in the industry today? At my last visit to a show I had a carrier bag full of plastic waste just from a dozen packs of hooks and a few spools of leaders/hooklengths

Is it really necessary to have the biggest brightest boldest packaging in a tackle shop to increase sales in today's competitive market?

What has always amazed me is that Kryston Klinik was sold at almost zero profit to Kryston. It was probably the first dedicated carp angling antiseptic.

I'm of the opinion that Minamino worked so well because of its high Sugar content not it Amino acid profile anyway.

Haha Kells hereís another interesting fact. When the worldwide shortage of pharmaceutical grade liver happened due to foot and mouth disease and itís price went through the roof Ambio could no longer be produced. However at the same time Minamino and itís variants still continued in production, there was no shortage of supply and strangely no increase in price whatsoever. So hereís a little food for thought for all of the anglers who believe Ambio was nothing more than Minamino dressed with a new name. Interesting ehí.

You say about that; for some reason I bought some Nash PVA bags, and forgot to take them out of my trousers pocket, still in the plastic zip bag.
They went through a 40 degree wash, the zip top bag had opened up, but the PVA was still not dissolved, some of the bags were totally intact.

Hi Duggs if you find your Driftwood has hardened due to its age not all is lost, using finger and thumb simply work a small amount of vegetable oil into it. Apply a small amount first then add a tiny bit more if required. It should revert back to its original consistency in no time at all and be perfectly OK.

I was lucky that when i got back into fishing, i bought a job lot of someone who was selling up. In that was 4 tubs of unopened original heavy metal. I was going to keep them to retire on, but after trying to use some of some of your favourite companies alternatives, Iíve had to use 1 lol.
Although he must have used huge pop ups if he needed 6 tubs of putty, 4 of yours and two of the others..... 😂

Thank you for the very thorough response Dave, the varied batches explains a lot. I must have luckily skipped the dodgy batches

Driftwood is one product of yours I miss. I managed to get a fair bit of it from clearance bins in my local shops, it can't have been a popular product but I found it so simple to get a very discreet and natural presentation.
I've got a couple of unopened tubs still but I don't know if it'll be any good by now, the lump of it in my floater kit is well past its best

Hi Duggs thanks for sorting the knot link out for me itís an age thing lol. Re Heavy Metal Iím not in touch much with the new owners Ockert in Germany so havenít seen the latest version of it. What I do know is that the previous owner of Kryston (the less said about him the better) made a complete balls up of everything. All of the documentation Ockert needed to make the product somehow went missing. They had the machinery and the raw materials but not the know how. It took me over three years and many trials to perfect it.

I first bought it ready finished in pots from that wonderful angler Harry Haskell But even Harry did not have a clue how to perfect it. Harry had a friend who was some sort of industrial Chemist but importantly not an angler so for the first couple of years Heavy Metal was certainly heavy but not as user friendly as it could of been. We bought it in 30,000 lots because you couldnít make it in small batches. Eventually the mixing company they used went bump so that was the end of it unless we bought the suitable type of machinery, industry heavy duty mixers, extruders and the rest of the stuff to make it ourselves.

After months of trials I found the chemist friend of Harryís had miscalculated the recipe and was using far too much dye to make the green and brown versions which made the end result almost solid and not easy to soften without the aid of a lighter. So bit by bit I added to the original black putty small increments of dye which was four different colours to make the green and five different colours to make the brown. The end result often working till three in the morning was I only needed 10% of the dye to what the chemist suggested. This made the product easy to soften by hand and easy to shape but importantly far more stickier and harden once in water.

When Ockert first made Heavy Metal themselves it did not have the stretch that my version had and I pointed this out to them. Itís not easy to make if youíve never done it before. It appears because of lack of communication and the previous owners neglect they were using the wrong mix. The all important adhesive which we used for Bogey was the wrong grade giving it far less stretch and stickiness. The good news is I have spoken to them late last year and they tell me they are using the correct grade now so the latest batches of Heavy Metal should be a near example to what I made.

Iím still amazed that all the Far East copies of Heavy Metal that all the brand names seem to buy from still contain wax to make it stick to the line better, itís certainly not a small amount they use but hereís the thing. Wax floats!!!...And if you want to make a heavy putty the last thing you need are buoyant materials in the bloody stuff. Heavy Metal contained 98% pure tungsten withoutany wax whatsoever. Hope this helps.

Really interesting dave
The fly attracting was what drew me to it, thinking if it draws bugs out of the water it should draw them under it too


I kept reading that heavy metal has changed, tried every other putty available and gone back to heavy metal as its still the best. Has it actually changed though?

When we launched Ambio one of its greatest advantages was when soaked in absorbent baits like fish meals the liquid leached out of the bait to remain on the bottom and slowly spread in the vicinity of the bait. At that time Minamino and many of the other soaks floated to the surface only to be driven by the wind well out of the location of the baited area. Judging by the results that followed there is no doubt that Ambio broke the mould at the time breaking numerous water records up and down the country. Ambio as a pure liquid food was totally unique. We were the first to tell the angler exactly what he was getting for his money by giving itís typical analysis on each and every bottle.

This pharmaceutical reference was a stone wall guarantee that every bottle contained each and every single ingredient but also their exact quantities and measurements...In other words itís guaranteed recipe. I remember getting a call from a Northern bait baron at the time saying we were crazy to give out such information. I then got an irate call from a very well known bait guru who was a prolific writer of books and articles, he was incensed and didnít believe the PPC ingredient existed. I sent him proof and heard no more. He was I believe miffed that such an authority such as himself should have known about it rather than some string maker on the other side of the Pennines. Lol. I published the TA because unlike many bait companies it wasnít made in house or bottled by ourselves but produced for us by a leading pharmaceutical company in tamper evident bottles straight off their production line. in other words we couldnít tamper with it or water it down.

When you buy medicine you will see lots of information and warnings in the supplied leaflet you will also find the products typical analysis. The TA can only be given by acknowledged pharmaceutical companies. Since my retirement I have published on many occasions itís formula on various social media sites and still amazed that that Ambio has never been replicated by the big boys. I can only conclude that it would be too expensive for them or is it that they cannot fiddle with it? Lol. . Ambio came to an end because of foot and mouth disease which ravaged the whole of Europe and many parts of the world. Pharmaceutical grade liver then only became available in Canada and Argentina and due to its scarcity and demand its price increased almost 100 fold. This would have meant that we would have had to increase the price way beyond what the average angler could afford so sadly as good and as groundbreaking the product was it had to come to an end. Yes we could have bought liver powder but which liver? Bovine liver is the key, poultry liver is readily available but miles behind bovine and king of the castle is pharmaceutical grade bovine in terms of its effectiveness.

Couple of things you didnít know about Ambio. We had to add a raspberry scent to it otherwise we wouldnít have sold a single bottle. One of its major ingredients was fresh spleen, fresh spleen was once described to me like the smell of opening a twelve week old grave! The stench apparently is horrendous, if you think Monster Crab would empty a house fresh spleen would vacate a bloody street. When I spoke to Bernie about Ambio he said he loved it as much as the carp did...He did do well on it especially the flash and also caught the big un from the small pool that was eighteen inches of water and eight foot of silt lol. Bernieís comments were Ďtrouble Is the flies love ití!...When he was catapulting his soaked fish meals out he got covered in the backlash leaving him sprayed. The next thing was every fly in Cheshire descended on him leaving an image of some poor starving African child you see in the charity advertisements. Flies obviously love the fresh spleen even with added raspberry scent.

Now you know a bit more about Ambio...Good luck lads and keep safe until things get back to normal.

Hi all ..... Had a reply from the man himself on a page elsewhere regarding Ambio...Its protein/amino profile when listed seperately is astonishing.. IIRC ,I think its downfall was its own success. Once the individual components became harder to source or buy at a sensible cost, it became impractical to produce as Kryston would have been running at a loss on its sales .

Had a good chat with Dave at one of the 5lakes shows,where he showed me a nice neat adjustable loop knot. Once snugged down it was very tidy Unfortunately I have forgotten how to tie the damn thing lol

Hi Ken sorry your wrong my old friend, PPC was simply one single ingredient contained in Ambio, some of the other all important ingredients were pharmaceutical grade liver, fresh spleen and gastric mucosa. PPC on its own is far removed from Ambio. Also Ambio bears little resemblance and is different as chalk and cheese to Minamino which is basically a syrup, to make a syrup you need sugar...lots of it which is why Minamino contained no less than 95% sugar! Ambio contained zero sugar. Hope you are keeping well and safe Ken.

Afraid not, but maybe Paulie will know...?

Your memory is at fault, MM! Kryston's Ambio liquid food was phosphorylcomanine.

Ken, Iíd be grateful if you could clarify this please.

My preferred hooklink material is 25lb Supa Nova. When I got a heads up that Kryston would go the way of Nutrabaits, I bought up as many spools as I could find...and bloody glad I did so too! The new stuff is awful.

old original Kryston was great, probably all our first forays into braided hooklinks.

Used to love Merlin as was weedy grean and quite heavy - having fished weedy waters at the time was a great strong hooklink to use.

Kryston Ambio - used to add to my own baits / use as part hookbait dip, never found as good as old Nutramino though

I can remember Dave telling me a tale regarding his first venture with PVA bags whilst he was fishing the Mangrove in the 80's he had sourced the first batch and took them to the lake was telling all the anglers about this new delivery system for putting bait out with the hookbait handed a few packets out to some of the rota to give them ago and get some feedback, in the morning one of the anglers came back to Dave and said those bags are ***** they don't melt like you said they would you can have them back, it transpired that said angler had tied up the plastic bag in which they were given and cast it out rather than the PVA bags inside.

Comedy Gold, mind you even back then there were a few that were a little bit hazy whilst bankside.

I still have some Merlin, Snakebite, Mantis, Mantis Gold and real Heavy Metal left.

I bought a few spools and Heavy Metal when I heard Kryston had been sold.

Nutrabaits and Kryston being bought up totally killed them as far as I reckon.


I do still have another interview on DVD that Dave Chilton did, might be a Kryston product DVD.

What an interesting interview.
Dave is still most insightful, and his creativity back then helped me to catch a lot of fish.

Nice mention of the great Harry Haskell (RIP), too.

A true giant in carp fishing history. If England had a team in the World Talking Championship, Dave would get MotM each game, a winners medal and knighthood. Top man.

The video was great. Dave is an absolute legend. A proper old school pioneer. It's kind of sad to see him age really, but I'm happy he is still getting on the bank.

Not too bad....Guess I'm on a diff planet, and I'm quite happy there
I keep seeing refs to folks in modern Carp fishing peeps who've not impacted in such a way on the whole as DC, give me DC anytime 👍

Edit...losing a bit of faith tbh ....sad state of affairs :-(

Fell asleep, fair enough, each to their own, imagine Rod Hutchinson getting that critique 👍
Asuming the falling asleep isn't a 'diss' on Carp Angling history, but if so, shame on you (imo).

Edit, I don't often nail my colours to 'a mast' but DC has surely fixed his place in Carp Angling history, to say not is surely 'nonsense'.

A interview with Dave Chilton for CarpolgyTV, I wonder how many special memories K products hold for us?
Very special to me, I like the section on heavy metal, might explain why copies are crap.

Edit, properly keeping it real.
