Egg based bird food like CeDe

The clue is in the title really. Nectarblend (which is presumably CC Moores Meggablend) would equally do the job.

I belive AA Baits can supply megablend (which I assume they buy from CC Moore, just like I used to )

Thanks Smurf, all starting to make sense now.
Just one more thing and then I'll shut up.
As I was planning on getting all the stuff from AA Baits, do they have an equivalent to megablend?

I think the blood powder is too soluble to count the aminos anyway (will disipate by the time the carp ingest the bait)

I'm not making the mix smurf, just stating what I would have done
Thanks for your opinion though

I have made your bait before and it caught very well, I'm on my own venture now though!

Fair enough, I see what you are saying. If it was me and hitting 1 kilo mattered I would knock .5% off the cede and add 2.5% Brewers Yeast which I would have thought would further enhance the mix by adding more soluble attraction. Smurf, your views?

Honestly I wouldn't worry about the 'missing' 2.5%.

If it was me, and for the batch size I make these days, I would convert the % to grams by multiplying it by 30 e.g.

BM1 (basic HNV mix)
30% LT94 fishmeal = 600 grams
15% Maize Protein Meal 60% (supergold 60) = 300 grams
13% Egg based bird food like CeDe = 260 grams
10% Semolina = 200 grams
10% Soya flour (heat treated) = 200 grams
8.5% pre-digested fishmeal = 170 grams
8.5% Calf or lambs milk powder such as Vitamelo = 170 grams
2.5% Selenavite E = 50 grams

That could give me enough to make a 10 eggs mix plus a coupe of different hookbaits mixes (cork balls, extra flavour etc) and some paste

Seeing as Ken says it's already a perfect mix, I don't really want to add anything to it though, just juggle what's already there.

As to the missing 2.5%....a good natural additive or two will help give out a little more attraction

@ Chuffy, think he already did!

While your there Smurf, getting back to my original query.....

So, if I use Selenevite at 2.5%, which of the other ingredients would you increase to make up the missing 2.5%?

Some blood powders are not very digestable so don't count on it for any amino acid content, having said that the mix is good enough anyway

Try wheat germ if you want but it can make a soft bait even softer (althoug the blood powder should help with that) so don't buy a sack load without making a test mix

Betaine
Salt fishmeals are already quite salty
Chilli again though try a test mix or two, impossible to recomend levels as different suppliers provide different chilli products.
Salmon oil keep levels sensible 20-30ml per Kg of base mix should be plenty

Amongst its properties salt is a palatant Don't think you will need any more but you could change some of your salt from above for MSG (which is also a salt, just a different type).

Has that helped or just added to the confusion
