Hi everyone was just wondering what you guys thought of these ingrediants added to my own liquadised White or brown crumb.

Original hobnobs
digestive biscuits
ready break or oats so simple
any cereal corn flakes crunchy nut etc.

Does anyone think any ofthese would work?

Also has anyone got any other crazy household stuff they add to the mix

possibly but a little expensive! keep the buscuits on the side tray for when you're feeling peckish!!

Take a visit to your local asian supermarket, corriander, ground chillie,

digestives and hobnobs will deffo work but will be expensive.
oats are reall a no go, they just turn to a thick stodge. no good for groundbait
corn flakes whizzed up in a blender may work well but they do take on a lot of liquid so use with caution. not too many or you'll make a stodgy groundbait

try adding custard powder to your crumb. or angel delight and sugar. worked well for Ivan Marks back in the day!

I've used doritos the blue packet before seemed to work ok, crushed them up and chucked them into the mix. Have also used cheap boilies crushed up aswell with success.

Have a word at your local dairy farm, many are buying in cattle feed from cereal producers, so where my Dad works they get all sorts, sugarpuffs, Frosties ect (complete with free plastic toys!)its all the stuff that would get rejected, some of the lads still eat it though!! At the moment they have a heap of white bread, they buy it for 90 a ton delivered in huge bulk lorries, sometimes it contains cakes as well, so if you know the herdsman and he likes a drink and you have a large sack..............

I use all the leftover biscuits (minus cream fillings)& cereals to bulk out my brown crumb. I also use porridge oats (42p a kilo in tesco!) but only about 5% of the mix. Never goes stodgy at this ratio.

just digestives can also go sticky and stodgy. i'd mix the crumb and biscuit in a 50/50 ratio to begin with and see how you get on. if its too sticky reduce the amount of biscuit until you are happy.

as for the jelly, mix up a stiff jelly mix with hot water and soak some expanders in the cooling liquid. once thoroughly soaked drain and stick in the fridge to set. you now have jelly pellets. a quick shake will seperate the pellets when set.
