Test E with 1% BA will hurt more than 3% BA. Especially if you're making 300mg/ml or higher. Most pain is usually associated with shitty raw. And if you up the BB % to compensate for less BA, that can cause pain as well.

You have to remember BA is a very good solvent, which is why it's used. Sometimes knots that people get are from not enough BA. The hormone is crashing in your muscle, causing the knotting and pain.

Good rule if thumb is 2/20 for long esters and 3/20 for short esters like Test Prop and such.

Pharma uses .9% so 2% is fine.
Yes they do, but they have the purest raws available. And they also have equipment that removes all contaminents and heavy metals if needed that most people don't have access to. And that's before the filtering process.

One more thing. They also get the highest grade solvents, BA, BB. The BA and BB that you get from RLS and lemalange are complete shit. Those are not true USP grade solvents.

lol I completely missed this damn thread! yes what the brotha brodel says is true, the raws are crap and filter your BA and BB if you don't have acces to USP quality.

Exactly, better to be safe than sorry...
NO BA doesn't kill shit and you can have a whole lot of bacteria there which BA will only keep it from growing in the damn vial!!! i'ts still in there just can get bigger in red-necked terms!

inject it into a nice warm enviroment like your body and as the BA leaves that bacteria is free to grow and grow!!!!

that's why we filter and use an auto-claves!!!

Where in the process would someone use an autoclave? Just curious.
You can/should autoclave your equipment and glassware. Wonder if you could autoclave the final product in the vials?

Couple other minor things that were stated that are incorrect: BA isn't gonna do anything for heavy metals and also BA isn't a sterilizer it's simply going to stop bacteria from reproducing or sporeforming.
