For those that brew, I’m curious about your test enanthate (or other test esters) recipies. I’ve tried pretty much anything and can’t seem to get truly painless test. I’ve made a batch or two that was pretty smooth in the past, but didn’t save the formula.
The last batch I made of enanthate was 250mg/ml dissolved in just 1% BA and sesame oil, which is pretty smooth, but not completely painless. I also have a batch of 20% BB and 1% BB, which hurts a bit more than the previous formula. The only thing I’ve made completely painless is tren at 100mg/ml, to the same specifications as the above two formulas.
People have said pain is due to the steroid crystals reforming in the muslce, some say it’s the BA, some say too much BB can cause pain. At the same time, I’ve heard that BB acts as a cosolvent to keep the crytstals in solution longer in the oil after injected, resulting in less pain.
I’ve only been brewing casually (for my own use) for about two years. I’ve used some “exotic” solvents such as guaiacol, but didn’t like the way it caused knots in the muscle. Apparently it’s used in prolotherapy to cause increased structural protein synthesis at the site of injection, used to strengthen weakened tendons, etc. I’ve heard ethyl oleate is great for making painless gear. If anyone wishes to share their recipies for painless gear I’d appreciate it much.
