t-gel question on dissolving
I've never used t-gel before I added 10g's of test to it but it appears to have small bits of test in it.. is that normal?
I've shaken it like crazy and also given it a hot bath..
Thanks in advance..

I had this happen to me also with some T-Gel that I bought from the SwapMeet section. Dont know if it was a bad batch or what. Definatly annoying. My only suggestion is lots of hot baths and LOTS of shaking. You could try leaving the bottle in your car during the day with your windows rolled up, if you are in a hot climate . Here in AZ it can get to 130+ degrees durring the middle of the day . Seemed to help a little for me, although I still have some granules left in it.

thanks for the reply.. well i dunno maybe t-gel can't take as much powder as i read it could.. i've dipped it into boiling water in hopes of getting it dissolved.. basically just warped the bottle.. was too risky obviously..when i applied it there was still a bunch of granules.. i take it those granules will be wasted test?

I know what you mean about the warped bottle. Happened to me also. I have gotten 10g of powder into T-gel with no granules. It just takes some time. Also what has worked best for me was to Boil a caraf of water (coffee pot) in the microwave. When it starts to boil take it out and set the T-Gel in with the pump out (or it could puff up and split a side) let it set for 5 min or so and add about 2.5 g's of powder. Shake the snot out of it then repeat until you have got all 10 g's in there. I know this doesnt help you this time but maby next time. As far as the granules ya unless you can get them to disolve with rubbing them (some will)in then they will be wasted. I had been contemplating adding some Isopropal or some peg 400 to mine to help with the solubiltiy but I think that will affect the absorbtion, so I dont know.

hrmm guess we'll just have to experiment.. =/ wonder if microwaving but putting it on defrost mode would work.. probably not.. sigh..anybody else got any ways of getting the stuff to dissolve?

Try placing a marble, or steel bearing inside it to help mix it while shaking. Do not micro it. This was brought up a long time ago, and it was strongly discouraged. If it is hot where you are at, place it in the heat for a while. Maybe in your car in the afternoon, then shake it. It may take a while.
If it will not mix, then you may need to use another bottle of T-Gel and mix them together so your product isn't wasted.

good idea.. i'll do a combination of both =) thanks..

I got 10g of test in Tgel no problem bro, I also put in a marble which I believe really helps. Also another thing I did was heat up the gel and transfer into a glass container. This was to be able to heat it up more because that plastic bottle will deform. Best of luck, J
