    Agree with that. It doesn't work as well if the water is cold, though -- in other words, refrigerate after mixing, don't start with chilled water.

    I've diluted a half-cup of malto in an 8-oz. plastic water bottle with far less than 8 oz. of water. It took a lot of shaking, but now I have a homebrew energy gel flask, of sorts.

    I think for the electrolyte potion, I'll mix up a concentrated batch to store in the fridge and dilute it into bike bottles as I go. Maybe throw in a squirt of fruit juice for flavoring so it doesn't taste like I'm drinking my own sweat.

    Iím thinking of doing this

    100 servings of electrolytes for $12.99

    Iíll just pour the contents of an electrolytes capsule or two into a bottle of water and essentially get the same benefits of the Nuun tabs w/o the flavoring and added price.

    So 100 servings = $12.99 VS 96 servings of Nuun = $41.40

    And I could also buy a jug of Carbo Gain for carbs.

    Seems promising. When I was looking around I could not find any complete caps like those at my local shops. The Vitamin C probably adds to the cost a bit and isn't really necessary, but certainly can't hurt. Having each serving in a cap like that would also make it easier to carry around extras. Good find!
