Well to help the new anglers, who have popped up on here just recently, welcome all.
My questions are similar.
1) When mixing ground / feeder mixes, do you put the crumb in bowl first or the groundbait mix?
2) Do you use crumb as a thickener or a bulking out product?
3) Do you, make up at the venue or at home the night before?
4) Is there a real difference between using tap water or venue water?
Lert the fun begin.

1. Groundbait 1st
2. For bulking out (and to dry it a little if needed)
3. At the venue
4. Aways try and avoid tap water
Oh, and milk definitely goes in last.

FUN? That's some serious stuff!
1. NO milk in tea (5 sugars please)
2 Groundbait first. (i.e. larger particles)
3. Then the "liquids". The crumb is called a "binder" (thickener) and is used as sparingly as possible to control breaking time. Some baits are both. I.E. basic recipe that will work the world over. Wheaties and red pop.
4. Usually at home the night before although more and more it is at the venue. (Nothing complicated)
5. NO difference. Although there probably is a difference I refuse to conceed the convience of tap water. Just don't tell the fish.
(the real problem with this "test" is that no two persons (Englishmen) define "groundbait" the same. It is the loose bait that lays on the ground in the swim - right? The delivery system for groundbait should ALWAYS be a packbait.) Feeders are for wimps!
