This is my first of hopefully many post,

I have always wanted to make my own boilies and this bm1 mix seems nice and easy to start off with.

Is the mix alown good enough, or does it benefit from extra attractors? If so is this where everyone makes their own personal choice to make the boilie their own, or is there a must add attractor that is better than the rest?

Smurf,
What do you recommend boiling times-wise with this mix and 16mm baits, I have now tried between 1min and 2min?

1min giving quite a soft bait and 2mins a much firmer finish that would withstand sticking out better. Just don't want to bludgeon all the goodness in there with over cooking.

The latest batch I made up with just LO30 liquid and Salmon Oil added.

I started out with Esterblend 12 (As always ) and Cassia E.O. In the end though i just rolled the mix with MSG and Butyric Acid. Thats what the majority ended up as. Stunk to high heaven.

I only used a little oil (5ml) As i used the CLO. They turned out really well. The last batch i made was a concoction of all the ingredients i had left to use up. They ended up as BM1 but with Caseins instead of Milk powder, CLO instead of Nectarblend, and no crushed hemp. They are still in the freezer (4kg ish). If i get chance later ill photo some later, and post them.

I also made a pop up mix using modified BM1 and glass spheres. It needed a little more work when i finished with it, but if i ever get i right, ill post the recipe. I was struggling to reduce the texture, and up the binders so it rolled and boilied properly. The last batch i made though was nearly there.

Thanks Russel.
Did you use a flavour in yours or just the basemix as it is?

Look good baits those mate.

I rolled about 20kg of BM1 basemix when i got round to it. Mine had a slightly different texture to yours, as i used CLO and crushed hemp instead of Nectarblend. But they are more or less the same colour.

I also caught from the off with the baits i made. Not a particularly difficult water (not a runs water by any means though), but they worked straight away. No pre-baiting what so ever. A good confidence boost and testament to a quailty bait.

Looking forward to playing around with BM2 when i get chance. That one looks like it will stand more tinkering with.

Depending on your others additives then yes I can be helpful to wrap it in cling film and let it stand for half an hour. Still they look good to me...I can almost smell them from here

Good aren't they and technically, they are yours!

I added some of my usual flavours, but the mix itself is so pungent I can hardly notice them, might just leave the next mix as it is or add something really smelly!

I also think I may have added too much base mix to the 5 eggs as I am used to just adding it till the mix stops being sticky, but I found with this mix it definitely pays to let is stand a bit to see what your dealing with. When I put the whole mix in the gun it couldn't shift it , had to take the end off and blow it all out and start again in two stages with a little veg oil.

We live and learn though eh
