Home Brew!

buying vials from UGLs is for chumps! I’ve been looking into making my own. It’s so cheap! I couldn’t believe how cheap.

the process doesn’t actually look hard at all. It seems to be pretty much

-add powder to oil
-mix
-heat

and that’s it (there’s a bit more to it than that but it’s really not that complicated).

Does anyone on here brew their own? Or if not, would you?

i would if i could

I’ve found a wicked guide which I’ll post here. Hopefully the Mods don’t mind. if this is against the rules then please accept my apologies.

  1. Assemble all ingredients & utensils you will need:

electric frying pan, glass stir rod, .22 micron syringe filters, benzyl alcohol (BA), benzyl benzoate(BB), 200ml glass beaker, electric scale (50g), various sealed sterile vials, ethyl oleate (EO), various syringes, various needles. (not pictured is grape seed oil (GSO))

Sterilize & clean your workspace utensils, BA works well. (This is important but not as much as everyone thinks, you can use unsterile oil, unsterile powder unsterile utensils, cause it will all be filtered baked in the end)

2.2. You enter all your ratios & amounts in the top section &as you can see the calculator will tell you exactly how much oil, powder, BA &; BB you will need in the results box.

  1. Work out what concentration & ratios you are going to make your batch.
    3.1. We are going to call the powder ?P?, this batch will be 50ml?s @ 75mg/ml, with 3% BA & 20% BB (powder weight stays at .75)

  2. Put an inch of water in an electric fry pan, you want to heat the water so it just below boiling point (about 70-80 degrees celcius/212 degrees Fahrenheit)

  3. Weight out your powder

  4. Place the powder in your beaker. Now draw up your BA & spray it on the powder. Now draw up you BB & spray it on the powder.

  5. Place the beaker in the warm water & stir gently until all the powder is dissolved (can take a few minuets depending on the powder)

  6. Now draw up your oil
    8.1. I am going to substitute some of the oil for EO & I recommend you do the same cause it?s makes for a nice thin batch. In this case I will use: 25ml?s GSO + 10ml?s EO = 35ml?s
    8.2. Draw 3ml?s of the oil mix into a separate syringe and set it aside (I will explain later)
    8.3. Now take the remaining 32ml?s and slowly add it to the powder in the beaker stirring occasionally until the solution is clear.

  7. Use a large syringe (60cc is perfect) & attach an 18g needle to it & draw the solution up.

  8. Get a sterile vial large enough for the whole batch & place a 25g needle through the stopper (this will be used as a vent)
    10.1. Place an 18g needle onto a .22 micron syringe filter, then attach the filter to your syringe that contains the solution.
    10.2. Push the needle thorough the top of the vial with the vent pin in it and firmly push down on the plunger filtering the entire batch. I like to attach a caulking gun from the hardware to the syringe to make the job easier

10.3. Now take the 3ml?s of oil mix and attach it to the filter, press down on the plunger adding the oil mix to the batch. This will flush any remaining hormone that might be left in the filter out.

  1. Transfer the batch into some smaller 20 or 30ml vials with a 20cc syringe & a 21g needle
    11.1. Allow the vials to sit for 2-3 days so the BA can work on sterilizing the batch.

  2. Place 25g needles through the top of each vial as a vent, MAKE SURE THE needle IS NOT IN THE SOLUTION OR YOUR GEAR WILL LEAK OUT THE needle. Place the vials in an oven heated to 200 degrees Fahrenheit (93 degrees Celsius) for 30 minuets

And that’s it. Doesn’t sound too hard to me. Fucking tempting.

I’ve been looking into it myself if you have half a brain you can brew. Only problem I have is obtaining the powders.

Yeah the powders are gonna be tricky. My sophomore year of undergrad I worked in a lab running endocrine experiments on mice and they had test bottles and all sorts of shit I’d need to brew at home laying around I could’ve easily jacked some… if only I had known better.

I get shit that’s home brewed and get it pretty cheap so I can’t complain but it sure would be nice to have your stock pile

Thanks rds for puttin that up, going in my save folder

bout to be the Heisenberg of 'roids, now i just need a cool ass RV

it is SO CHEAP to make it yourself. You honestly get ten times as much for your money. I think I’ll home brew when I go onto blast n cruise next year

Oh ya it’s dirt cheap and well worth it, like you im also considering b&c and home brewing would be great. Damn customs

I’ve home brewed once. I have a shitload of test prop powder left too. I brewed 200ml of test prop at 100mg/ml and it went well except for two of my filters broke because I used too much vacuum pressure. It’s going to last me forever. I would really love to brew some tren but the powder is WAY more expensive than test prop. The money that can be saved by home brewing is enormous though.

i’d be so sketched shooting that shit into myself though… pharmacy grade no more

i’ve been looking into homebrewing as well. I’ve just been too schetched out to buy some powder. Not because of legal issues but quality and potency issues is all that concerns me… finding a powder source is definitely a little trickier than finding finished product or so it seems.

Legal issues what scares me I could ask my guy to get me powders but i worry about customs. I’m such a pussy haha

cool man, thanks for sharing that.

What you said about your test lasting forever really validates what I’ve been thinking. I can make enough gear for like the next decade for pennies!

I was thinking about hmoe brewing too, but I don’t trust myself. On the other hand, why should I trust any UGL? Maybe I should rethink that…

I think it’s easier to put it out of your mind when it’s a sealed neat little package

exactly man, how do you know if your shit has been dosed properly? At least if you’re making it yourself you know for sure what you’re getting (assuming of course you can trust the powder…).

I know thers some place you can send it and get it tested.

Like an actual lab, on the up and up? Is this information available for public consumption?

what i’ve done before with testosterone anyway, is give a free cycle to a buddy of mine then send him to a lab like labcorp to get blood results. I’ll definitely be doing the same thing with powder if i can ever find any im willing to pull the trigger on lol
