I used to crack the eggs into the bowl, then stick the shells through a coffee grinder and add them to the bowl with any flavours.

I can't say it improved the bait any as I caught on baits both with and without eggshell.
The white flecks on the skin looked good😆😅

id suspect that you defo get more liquid in due to the eggs being made up of a high percentage of water.

Thatís actually a very interesting point Iíd never considered about powdered eggs. I guess as long as the liquids have a better profile than fresh eggs then that could be an interesting edge.

I wonder if the big companies do a similar thing with their pop ups. Iíve noticed that if you compare a home made CC Moores or Mainline pop up using their pop up mixes with a shop bought from the same company, the homemade is never as hard, despite adding additional hardeners.

I rehydrate it, by mixing the egg powder with liquids / attractors and liquidising so it ends up just like liquidised eggs.
I always use bottled water as tap water is horrible.

I do it all by weight so every mix comes out exactly the same, then i have the confidence to chuck it in the rolling machine and know it wont go horribly wrong. I use an 8 Kilo gun and auto cutter so i often just leave it to churn through, machines are more sensitive than tables so the consistency is important to me.

And yes Tom you can get more liquid attractors in the mix

Interesting point, does dry egg powder mean that you can get more attractive liquid into the bait?

Do you add the powder to the mix or do you have to rehydrate it back into a liquid first then add it as you would normal eggs?

I use powdered egg from BAF, it makes the mixes far more consistent which helps with rolling machines as they are more fussy than rolling tables.
It also means I can pop out to the garage and roll a few kilos without having to go and get eggs.

To be truthful I do prefer fresh eggs but the powdered egg is just so much more convenient and I certainly have not noticed any difference in catch rates

yeah mate, i know where your coming from, but from a point of use, and longevity in the water, boiling process for baits is brilliant when you think about it.

id prefer to use a base mix paste for leakage etc, but my confidence leaving it out for 48 hours would be rather low

Agreed, I just don't like the fact they seal the bait, I haven't used a whole boilie for years, first thing I do is break them open, seems a waste after the effort gone into making them!

yes, you can certianly use other binders, but eggs (IMO) are far the best and easier to use.

if you look at the nutritional profile of eggs, they are pretty special
