Recently I have been looking into the idea of reducing the BA content of test through heating the vial in an oven. After looking at threads on various other forums the basic idea or most common method is as follows;
1.Gather together the following items:
Vial of Test cyp.
1-18g sterile pin
1-.22 sterile filter (preferably one that has the ability to be autoclaved)
(Optional) 20 ml. sterile syringe with 18g pin
Open sterile filter, with out touching the inlet or outlet of the filter attach to your 18g pin.
Insert the pin filter combo into the vial (preferable the pin will not be in the Test cyp.)
Place the vial in a small pan and place in a cold oven, set the oven at 180f for 30-45 min. (if you are worried about losing or hurting your test cyp. in any way don’t. Here is why the alcohol in the benzyl alcohol has a flash point of 200f, benzyl benzoate boils at 614f cotton seed oil boils at 442f and finally the Test cyp. has a melting point at 285f.)
Turn off the oven a let the vial cool completely before removing the pin/ filter combo (the filter assembly is not there to filter the gases as they escape but rather to filter the air going back in the vial as the liquid cools.)
Optional-If you are worried that you have boiled away some volume and would like to know the new mg/ml strength then draw up the contents of the vial in the 20 ml syringe and divide the total mg. by the total ml.s you have left.
I would be very interested to know what people from this forum have to say. I have noticed some disagreement between posters on other forums regarding the effectivness of boiling where it is argued that the test would be destroyed before the BA budged. I do have some experiance of making alcohol at home (poteen or moonshine as you guys call it) and so the idea of reducing BA content in this manner sounds appealing. You will probably ask why do I want to do this at all, well basically my leg is fucked and I cant walk without serious pain. This is not good for my line of work which involves climbing through air ducts and cooling towers (dont ask). The test I am using at the moment is BP and its BA content is just to high for me to use either that or I have high sensitivity to BA. Any comments or advice would be greatly appreciated.
