This may be the most subtle source troll thread I have seen. And not so subtle. If it's your 5th cycle you should already know if the gear you previously had was good. If so stick with it.
No offense to you guys here, nor am I looking to disrespect you guys, but if Balkan is good. that is news to me.
Balkan for years was one of the worst brands possible.
If they changed their tune in the last year or two..then good for them...they certainly couldn't have been worse in the past.
And I highly doubt you are going to find "heavy" metal content on any UGL brand. I have never heard of a brand ever justifying that OP. Good luck to you man in your research
Yeah, i was thinking the same thing. I don't understand. Theyr is huge ammounts of boards with a ton of sources. and its not hard to look at reveiws and figure out who's who. after the first two times i bought gear i have never had to source check again!This may be the most subtle source troll thread I have seen. And not so subtle. If it's your 5th cycle you should already know if the gear you previously had was good. If so stick with it.
AGREED! You just have to know your supplier as well. as long as you are not doing things on a large scale, it's not that serious of a risk.Another reason to homebrew. Trust no one. It's not as complex as everyone makes it out to be. If you can make mac n cheese, you can brew up some test.
Because powders from China are 100% reliable. Can it be done sure, is it guaranteed you're getting legit powder.....NO. so if you're an a mature brewer how do you protect yourself and ensure that what you have is what you asked for. Not saying it can't be done but, ask yourself all the questions.
Who said anything about China?
Good to know. Balkan is one of the lines I see from time to time along with the others, same stuff, no bad reviews. I don't dig into the international stuff though and don't go to many places that discuss it.
No offence taken, I know you have been around and if you say it, it's because it's what you have seen or experienced.
When a thread like this starts, it's usually one of the first things that pop in my head so I completely understand your concern.
I then look at the poster's history, especially when post count is not high. Given the length of membership and the posts that were made in that year, valid posts in my opinion, this being the only thread that names a lab, it doesn't look like a salesman or troll thread.
In this thread, he states the distributor of the Balkan line he orders from has 10ml vials but they stopped making them and now have amps which worry him after he heard that the distributor of the line has a shady past that he found out in a different thread.
It's my belief he used the line but is now worried about getting fakes.
again this comes down to knowing your source as the source i have gotten balken tabs from was legit. Only source i would ever use if i wanted that brand! their is actually being a log done on balken test right now an another board. 5 testers with enough test to run for 12 weeks and also your choice of AI! Blood work being done also.
However i have heard others give balken bad reveiw in the past, guess it was from a shitty source, prob countereits. their is counterfeit everything. Look at Rips! Look at some HG gear, thats counterfeited all the time in other countries!
Yes sir, you are correct. I'm not certain Balkan stopped manufacturing 10ml vials, as I have seen them on more than 1 site currently for sale. If I some how had a way to verify that I would, but Balkan's site isn't in English. If I knew for sure that Balkan only makes amps, I would have that part checked off my research checklist.
I appreciate the feedback I'm getting from you guys. Thank you.
