    In some of the videos on YouTube they add corn flour to thicken and fluorescein to make more visible. Would you suggest adding these in the bottle or separately in a bowl.

      We are not an advocate of using drain dye so cannot comment, but we would suggest mixing these in a bowl. However corn flour is a tough one, in testing we have found that this separates and ends up going hard at the bottom after time.

  2. Stuart says:

    What can I use to thicken the mix up? I’ve used corn flour and as you say in a reply above, it separates so I want to stop using it but I don’t know what to use instead?!

  3. Bait Hacks says:

    This all depends on the amino acid as they are all different, however we would recommend only adding about 3-6% maximum. Adding more will not increase the effect of the amino acids. Hope this helps.
