I personally do NOT like creatine ethyl ester (CEE) - I used it ONCE and it skewed my bloods up big time and is the ONLY creatine that has INcreased my Creatinine levels, enough that the doctor (not that they know much) thought I had renal failure. Re effects though, CEE was no different to creatine monohydrate (CM) - however, this could have been because the product I used was not JUST a creatine product.
CM is the most tried and proven supplement, so stick with that. There's plenty of CM products out there, like CreaPure, Kre-Alkalyn, etc.

Haven't tried CEE... Tried Mono and kre-alkalyn, both are good.

Monohydrate will give you more size, and for me EE almost dries me out. A debate I get myself in which one I should use, but overall I like to take a Pre-workout that has a proprietary blend that includes mono, and then an EE such as like Cellmass, or in a pill form post workout

Mono. I will agree with Rosie, and say that CEE just doesn't belong in hte human body. This comes form experience.

I prefer Mono, some may have results with CEE. Ultimately this means that try both and see which one works better for you. If you go with CEE, depending on your goals,you may want to load too(I won't get into all of this in this thread, but loading is imperative for mass gaining goals).

Nobody uses CEE anymore, creapure is the only way to go. JMO

CEE researchs shows that it is worse than mono, so just take creapure.

I used CEE once in powder form,and i am not kidding when i say this--it was the most rotten tasting thing i had ever taken....Straight,chemical-laced garbage. I am not familiar how the ethyl-ester works,but i do know that it has no business being in my or other people's body's
