where would one get caps to do so, and is there a certain technique used I should know about? this seems like it could be somewhat tedious
its actually quite easy. Best way is to buy a complete capping kit from Nutraplanet... I like the 00 caps. You can do 50 caps at a time and it gets easier the more you cap.
i do it all the time, its rather easy. go with the capping supplies that TP mentioned. only thing is that bulk pfull gets a little sticky, but not really a problem, i just avoid capping it when its really humid.
The tops can be tricky if you over pack? I've never ran into that problem...
00 caps are pretty sweet, and you can pick up the entire kit (Caps, holder/tamper, scale) for pretty cheap at NP...I bet you can fit aroun 750mgs into each cap.
Make sure you break up the powder well before you are doing it though, clumps have always been my biggest problem.
But the savings make it well worth your time.
yeah i've ran into problems where if you over pack the pill, the tops are hard to make fit because the bottom part of the cap where the top inserts over it is so bloated...just make sure not to try and tamper too much into each pill. the 00's fit a good amount of powder nicely though.
The tops should fit over the bottoms...you should be filling the interior half of the cap. and the casing(pill holder) should make sure that they don't get too big...
too much tamping can cause some problems with them swelling though.. i've ran into this when trying to get greedy and over filling a cap. they can become very tight and hard to get over, sometimes "smooshing" the bottoms ruining the pill.
I see...someone needs to stop taking out his agression on his veggie caps
