BTW, those are the new smaller bottles and you can't get 6 grams in there, only three. I couldn't even get 6 grams of 4AD into solution on their old bigger bottles (twice the size).

I have the 4oz bottles & I just got 9g of 1-test to dissolve with ease. I am certain I could've got at least 10g to dissolve.
Best way to do it is to transfer it to a clear bottle so you can see it. Start with the recommended amount & increase by 1g gradually. It will take a little heating, but you should be able to get 5g in the 2oz bottles pretty easily.

4/ad doesn't go in solution as good as 1-test does. You definately need to heat with 4/ad to get the max in solution.Originally Posted by Brodus

I heated the 4AD solution in a hot water bath for 20 minutes, shook vigorously (many times over two days), and still have white powder at the bottom of the bottle (which I can see with my mini mag). I did not transfer to a clear container to do this, because I felt I would lose solvent to evaporation, although I'm sure it would help for observing the solubility. I just wait for the stuff to settle down and peer into the container w/ a flashlight.
I plan on dropping it into a heat bath again, maybe a few more times.
I am aware that 4AD is the worst for solubility, so I expected 6-7 grams max. But since they advertised it as "safely dissolve 6 grams of any PH" I was disappointed that it didn't dissolve @ 6 grams.
I have another 4 ounce bottle I will use w/ 1-Test-->agreed most reports say 9-10 grams, so the 2 ounce bottles should hold 4-5 of 1-Test no problem, Bennett.
BTW, Longdog, how many ml per pump w/ the old bottles? Is it 1.75? BSL has a lot of mixed up info on their site right now.

Yeah, mine are 1.75ml. The newer bottles don't say, but I had an older bottle that does.Originally Posted by Brodus

BSL is suppose to be the old Avant formula. You may actually have to mix it with a mixer to get it in solution??

btw, why the hell are they selling 2oz bottles now. I didn't think 4oz was big enough. Give me the 8oz bottles!!

I am pretty sure BSL is avant's formula. My 1-test/OHT went into solution much easier than I expected.
I agree on the 2oz bottles, what the hell can you use that for? It must be a pricing thing. Now they are charging for 2oz what I paid for 4oz just a few weeks ago.

Price gouging sucks, why buy that instead of T-Gel anyways?Originally Posted by Longdog
any opinions or feedback on PN's Power Gel?
That comes in a 8oz bottle, and if I thought it could hold close to 20g I would say it was a bargain.

I prefer T-gel, but it's been unavailable for a while.Originally Posted by cookmic5
No idea on Power gel, but I'm sure the price will go up on that too when it starts selling.
