Different from Rubbing Alcohol?
BA better method i.e. BA & pen together?
I had an issue mixing the stuff, it kept dropping out of the solution. Is this the best method so far?
- Boil pan of water
- Add Penetrate to glass beaker / pyrex measuring jug
- Super heat
- Stir in gram by gram i.e small amount of penetrate until all five grams in?
- Cool back down to room temp
I worry about heating it too much... the alcohol in the penetrate will evaporate off, and I'm not sure how that might effect it as a carrier. I just kinda warm mine up a bit, then pour the formestane that I've all ready dissolved in the BA.
It will still settle in the bottle, but its not an undissolved grit. Its more like a "cloud", and as soon as you shake it, its suspended again.
So if I have already mixed it, and it did not dissolve completly, can heating still help, or do I have to start from scratch?
Thanks!, Im off to the stove.
So Red you think the BA is a better way then? I had to heat mine a couple times because I didn't follow the method above.
Walmart / pharmacy's would carry this or?
It worked well for me Neo. I was never able to get it to fully dissolve with heat alone. There was always grit at the bottom. *note* I was only using 1/2 bottle of penetrate, 'cause I'm a cheap b@stard. People using a full bottle reported better results.
Nope, walmart won't carry BA. Its main use is in making injectables.
This is a really helpful thread. Thanks to everyone involved with their experience and expertise. I have often wondered about my trans 6-oxo being slightly gritty. I wondered if it was still good. I used it anyway, of course, and it gave great results. For the most part it is dissolved, but there is still only a slight grittiness to it. Glad to hear that's normal!!!
I have about 3g worth of formestane in a half bottle of Penetrate, anyone want it?
