When I used to be working away all week and get home on Thursday then straight to the local lake or either up early and off to the syndicate on the Friday.... preparing particle was a hard option living in hotels. I would have loved to have had particle this readily available to be part shelf life for a week or so.

Option 1 - Defrost it from the freezer on a Monday morning, pick up on Thursday night / friday morning same week. With the potential of it has gone off during the week of hot weather..

Option 2 - it might be thawed by the Sunday if you pick it up on Thursday from the freezer..

Not everyone has the luxury of returning home at a set time each day and preparing particle

Having the option and the prospect / convenience of having some short term shelf life vac sealed in the back of the motor for 'emergencies' can be rather appealing and takes the worry out of being prepared on a Sunday for the following Thursday/ Friday!!

I agree... it doesn't take that long at all to prep in terms of time your doing things.

Put particle in bucket to soak and fill with water - 5mins max, once soaked transfer to pan and put on stove and turn on - 5mins max. when cooked transfer to bucket and put lid on - 5mins. All the other time you can be doing other stuff.

On carbon baits I have herd good things and seen the particle from a friend and it looked really good. But cannot vouch as having used it. On monster particles someone gave me some hemp and it was very poor quality and had zero liquid in it but I did get a load of tigers off them when they were selling them off at the NAS and they were a lot better quality.

in your opinion, i had a terrible experience and the stuff all floated and got abused, so i wouldn't say its a fantastic company and the owner well might be a very experienced angler but has no customer service skills, very rude and threaten to come to my house. You probably have great experience with them but i didn't and wont make that mistake again, stick to cooking my own from hinders.

That's it mate, it's better and so much cheaper. I really don't get why people use pre done particles, after all everyone can boil water

I've tried the Mason jar method for maize and tigers but they don't seem to have the same magic.
I should just do a batch of hemp and freeze it into small portions I can defrost quickly

Fair enough, you can freeze it in small batches too if needed. I've used those tins etc of pre done particle before and never done as well on them tbh, but I do like all my bait fresh as possible (except for tigers and maples which I like to let slime). I wonder if vac sealing it into small bags would give it some sort of shelf life? Might give it a go and see

In my case I have a river in walking distance, I'll often just decide to have an hour at the drop of a hat. It limits my free bait choices to pellets, tinned particles (mainly corn) and groundbait. I've done fine with those options to be fair

No idea chap, as long as you know the day before you go then it's easily prepped overnight anyway, using either a cool box or flask for smaller amounts

I've often looked at these places as an option for grab and go baits, something I can have in the shed for those impromptu sessions, and a lot cheaper than the dynamite jars.

Is there a way to do shelf life hemp yourself that is as good as fresh?

Which is why it's better to do it yourself and not rely on a company to do it.....

Yes i made that mistake, can do so much more doing it your self, i used monster before never had any problem but tried carbon because they had a great deal on was stupid to not take the deal was cheaper to buy prepared than make your own but wont make that mistake again. Hinders i can hightly reccomend on dry particle though if you like doing your self,

I can't believe people would waste money buying from these companies. As if particle preparation is difficult or time consuming. You know what goes in when you DIY.

Funny that, I have been using Monster particles frozen hemp and after baiting noticed duck hoovering up something on the surface, chucked a handful in the edge, hey presto it floated.. and there’s me ready to switch to Carbon!
