    Green tea... wouldn't touch it.

    I have a flavoured mixture of the following before every workout:

    4g CEE
    3g ALCAR
    5g CM

    I then take caps that total 1g of green tea.

    After workout:

    4g CEE.

    i know alcar can be mixed right before you drink it, i was just wondering how long it would remain in solution. I guess its a dumb idea when i can just mix it into some water and pound it

    Crystal Light works great. Green Tea extract is nasty....be prepared to gag.

    I've got to the point where I can throw the ALCAR to the back of my throat and down it with water.

    Where can I get capping supplies? I hated the taste so much I just stopped taking it. If I can find a way to cap it, I'll start using it again.

    1 - Capping Machine
    2 - Capping Tamper (for the less dense powders such as green tea \ certain nootropics - used to push down and condense in capsule)
    3 - 1000 empty gelatin capsules
    $22.99 for the set. Pretty good price.

    james got to it b4 i could.
    good post.

    in addition, you might want to search on:



    1-how to figure out how much packing powder you want to put in. This is a great thread that DOES THE MATH FOR YOU, so you can't screw it up!

    Filler for capping your own powders?

    2- if ALCAR is going to be a good candidate for DIY capsuling. From what I remember I didn't put my ALCAR in caps because it was supposedly very hard, since it is very hydrophillic.
    That's why it dissolves so easily in water, which is why I just throw it in water and drink it up!
