Best way to mix powdered raws 101

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

 Thought I'd throw this out there to share how I mix my raws when they are going into capsules. Just mixing two ingredients together via stirring will not make a homogeneous mixture. Only "grinding" your components into similar sized particles will ensure fairly accurate dosing.    Enjoy.

FYI: Some good filler powders that I use are glutamine, creatine, arginine, dextrose. I try to match particle size of filler to active ingredient.

From experience don't use whey, it clumps up and packs together easy, plus it's super light weight and can "poof", making a mess.

Ready for the math?

So I'm going to try to be as general, but specific as I can.... this equation is for 100 caps.

25mg is equal to .025 grams, you just cary the decimal (love metric system).

1) figure out capsule weight eg. .090g

2) figure your filler weight in a full capsule with capsule  Eg. .560g

3) subtract capsule from filled weight .560-.090=.470

4) subtract amount of active ingredient to get your total filler weight. .470-.025=.445 total filler

Now we move the decimal to get total mixing weights.

 44.5 grams filler, 2.5 grams active

This is how i figured it out on my own, if someone has a better formula please chime in.

Now titrate away....

Looks like to much work for me, lol. I'm to lazy so I do the liquid oral thing. How long (approximately) would it take to cap up 10g of dbol at 50mg/tab, 2000 tablets. Thanks for the posts

A while... for 2000 caps you'd need 100 grams of raws.

Takes me about 1.5 hours to mix and cap 100 caps. I only prepare what i think i need for the time frame involved. I keep the rest of the raws vac sealed with absorbent packs for freshness.

As far as the parameters you described of ingredients, 10 grams into 50mg per cap, would give you 200 caps. Perhaps you just added one too many zeros to get "2000".

I know this post is hella old, but I thought I would throw this out there that when I am grinding/mixing powders, I like to use something colored as and an add in to the raw glutamine or creatine to ensure a good mix. If I am lazy I just pop open a couple curcumin caps.
