You will get mixed advice RE betaine levels, my advice is do not go over 50 grams per ten kg of base mix.

What betaine will you be using?

Made my 1st batch of BM1 today . A 1egg mix as I have never made boilies before. They turned out amazing , gunned out and rolled really easily.

So a big thank you to everyone who has contributed to this very informative thread

I did not add any other ingredients but will probably add a couple of attractor powders to my next "big" batch, thinking of betaine and L030 powder . Can anyone recommend how much of these would go into the base mix ?

Whey gel for me everytime where hard hookers needed, drives out moisture and gives a harder finished bait throughout than standard wpc80.

Or blood powder for the cheaper option (just as effective for that purpose)

Between 5 and 10% egg albumin and/or WPC should be fine. Otherwise as he says....hookbaits only

You can make hardened hookbaits by adding 10% Egg albumin.
Do this only on the hookbaits.
Soft baits are more attractive in my mind the rock solid ones.
