I'm gearing up for a run of TNE suspension. Ill be homebrewing it at 75mg/ml but would like to brew 60ml at once instead of the 20ml most recipes call for.
Does anyone have experience brewing these larger amounts?
My only concern is preventing the BA/BB/P80/TNE from crashing in the filter as I would be attempting to push 9ml of heated material through a .22 micron filter. Ive read that baking everything (filters/needles, syringes) as well as heating up the BA/BB/P80/TNE mix can keep things flowing longer. Is there anything else I might want to try to keep things from crashing or am I being over paranoid?

I guess I answered my own question. I hit the limit at around 6ml of TNE/BA/BB/PS80. I heated everything up and baked the syringe, filter and vial at 200F for a 10min prior to filtering to keep things as warm as possible but it still crashed with a few ml left in the syringe. Next time Ill just suck it up and by more filters and stick with 20ml batches. Good thing TNE isnt too expensive.

Ive noticed that the suspension settles to the bottom after a day or so. The fluid on top is still looks like milk but if I let it sit for a day or two there will be about an 1/8-1/4 inch of solid collected at the bottom of the 100ml vial. Is this normal for suspension?

Hey Icon how'd the homebrew go? I'm looking at doing this soon, but most of the info out there is from a while ago. How do you plan on running it?

you know, esterification is relatively simple with only very basic knowledge of organic chemistry. alcohols react with carboxylic acids to produce esters.... anyone have any vinegar for some salad dressing? an acid catalyst with a little bit of heat to reflux the dressing really adds flavor to that salad.
aren't riddles fun!
disclaimer: please don't actually try to make salad dressing by refluxing a mixture of HOAc and chemicals that have hydroxyl groups with an H3O+ catalyst
hope i didn't break any rules, and I apologize if i did

Ive just ordered some Ethyl Oleate and Guaiacol and will try making a recipe at 125mg/ml. Not that the suspension isnt effective, but there is a significant amount of pain associated with this stuff so Im looking into some different recipes. Still this stuff at 75-100mg ED with 50mg dBol ED is pretty awesome for strength and weight gain.

Just wanted to update things a bit. The Ethyl Oleate and Guaiacol recipie is still working out well. So far strength and weight gain is good and the pain at the site of injection continues to be tolerable. Ive seen posts where people claim that guaiacol has analgesic properties. I feel there may be some truth to this as 5min after pinning there is no noticeable pain at all. Pain starts about 6hrs after pinning and peaks around 12 and is gone within 48hrs. All of the pain is tolerable, but I found similar pain with .3ml or .6ml so I went from 2xED@.3ml down to 1xED@.6ml. So far this has been working well and I haven't noticed any difference between 1xED or 2xED other than just one part of my body hurts rather than 2. The only downside of this so far is that the guaiacol has a fairly strong smell that lingers after brewing and that you can smell and taste for a few minutes after pinning. To me it smells like smoked almonds but Ive heard it described also as smokey beef jerky.

Ive been doing a site rotation of Tri's, delts and quads. With tri's and delts I'm hopping to get some of that fabled sight enhancement and the quads are thrown in there to give the other groups a break.

I recently had to make another batch of suspension and was able to get it easily at 150mg/ml with Ethyl Oleate and Guaiacol, I'm not quite sure what the limit is for the concentration or which solvent is doing the majority of the work but I may see if I can tweak it next time around to push it closer to 200mg/ml. Still 150mg/ml for TNE isn't bad at all and there isn't a noticeable increase in pain from the higher concentration.
I'm curious if anyone has any links to site enhancement with TNE. Right now its too early to tell if the increase at the injection sites is from constant trauma caused by the injections, general size increase from the AAS or if it really is a byproduct of TNE injections. I think the next run of this Ill take accurate measurements to see what kind of change I can elicit.
