What is Benzyl-Alcohol & Benzyl Benzoate and what do they do?
Benzyl- Benzoate is a solvent. This means solutes such as Hormone Powders dissolve easily in it, and that is the main purpose of its use in Steroids. The Benzyl-Benzoate is used to dissolve and suspend the Hormone Powder. If the correct amount of this solvent is not used the Hormone powder will 'undissolve' from the solution causing the Steroids to 'Crash' (get cloudy/less effective).
Some Hormone Powder dissolve more easily than others and therefore less Benzyl Benzoate is required. The fact that varying amount of the solvent are required for the Hormone Powders is why having this page as a resource is so vital.
Benzyl-Alcohol is just a form of alcohol. Its use in Steroids is to preserve the suspension for months, even years, without any reduction in sterility. Alcohol is an anti-bacterial disinfectant and is used as such in many industries. As aforementioned Benzyl-Alcohol ensures the Steroid maintains its sterility when used in the right concentration, however, if too much is used the Steroid will be painful to inject and will cause post injection soreness.
How To Scale Our Recipes
Here's how to scale recipes:-
25 gram Testosterone Ethanate powder (18.75ml)
2ml BA (2%)
10ml BB (10%)
25g Powder is used, we want only 2.5g to be used, 25/2.5 = 10. Therefore we want 10x less than the amounts in the above recipe:--
25g Test E/10 = 2.5g used
2ml BA/10 = 0.2ml BA used
10m BB/10 = 1ml BB used
69.25 Oil/10 = 6.93 Oil used
The above is the recipe you need for 10ml @ 250mg/ml for Test E.
QualityRaws reccomend all new recipes to be trialled with a 10ml batch. Use the above method to create a suitable recipe.
These should be exactly, use electronic scales that are able to weight to 0.01g to ensure accuracy. You will see the abreiviations BA and BB being used in the following recipes. Benzyl Benzoate - BB / Benzyl Alcohol - BA. For any recipes not found below, please ask in the Steroid Production section of our Forum.
Step 1. Prepare a hot water bath. Boil water in microwave or on a pot. Once boiling starts remove from heat.
Step 2. Place PEG and powder in beaker.
Step 3. Place the beaker deep enough in to the water so that the hot water is level with the PEG and powder. Gently swirl or stir with a stir rod until solution is clear. Reheat water as needed.
Step 4. Allow PEG to cool some. Then add in your 190 proof alcohol. You don't have to do this drop by drop but don't just dump it in. Pour it in slowly.
Step 5. Stir or gently shake until mixed.
For recipes that do not require PEG.
1. Mix powder and 190 proof alcohol.
2. Stir with stir rod or shake. Most powders that do not require PEG will disolve no problem. If heat is needed follow the instructions for heating powders that use PEG
Injectable Winstrol Suspension
How to make Winstrol Suspension @ 100mg/mL X 20mL in water.
-2 grams stanozolol powder X 0.75 displacement volume = 1.5mL
-24% BB = 4.8mL
-3% BA = 0.6mL
- 3% Polysorbate 80 = 0.6mL
-DISTILLED Water (ONLY use Distilled Water!) 12.5mL
-Combine stanozolol powder, BA, BB, PS80 and heat until clear while swirling.
-Filter slowly with a Sterile 0.22um Syringe Filter directly into a Sterile Vial.
- Filter the distilled water with a new Sterile 0.22um Syringe filter into the vial - Keep swirling the vial as you filter in the distilled water.
-Vigorously shake the Winstrol in the vial for a few minutes
Complete! You now have Winny @ 100mg/mL X 20mL.
NOTE: your final Winny solution will look foamy or airy. After you shake the hell out of it, let it sit untouched for 3 days. You will see it settle out with the water on top as usual. This will be very micronized and settling out will take days, so do not be concerned.
This will produce the standard PIP of Winstrol found in Underground Labs, it is not totally painfree - but not painful.
