Simple Version by Coldstone:
Capping is very easy...first you need to get a capping machine...Mr T has one th
at is very nice...just do a search for caps...i get 1000 for like 9.99 or someth
ing like that...00 size is the way to go also...
I myself and sv-1 i know prefer the "capping machine"...it only does 24 at a tim
e, but it makes it super fast...jut do a yahoo search and you can find em...
you wont be able to cap L-dex, arimidex, or clen...but winny, nolva, clomid, var
, d-bol, drol, DNP, even primo are all "capable"...here are the steps as easy as
i can explain.
step 1- figure out what your gonna use for a filler...i like corn meal, and prot
ein powder personally...but you can use things like corn starch, creatine, gluta
mine and stuff like that...
step 2- fill the bottom of a 0 or OO cap with filler and then dump it out on a s
cale to see how much each cap holds...ie. a 00 cap holds .39 grams of protein.
step 3- math...say your useing Mr. T's capper that holds 50 caps...multiply .39
times 50 and you get 19.5 grams.
step 4- say were making nolva @ 10mg caps...so 50 caps times 10mg = 500mg...or .
5 grams.
step 5- subtract your powder weight (.5g's) out of your filler weight (19.5g's)
and you get 19 grams of filler, and .5 grams of powder...that mix will make you
50 caps @ 10mg.
step 6- mixing...mix the powder and filler real good in a ziplock baggie for 5-1
0 minutes...then heres my personal trick...get a flour, or powdered sugar sifter
at wally world and sift the powder into a dish of some sort...
step 7- fill your capper with the bottoms of the empty caps...then pour your pow
der over the top of them.
step 8- work the powder into the caps with the plastic "credit card thingy"...an
d tamper the caps full untill all of the pwder is inside the caps...
step 9- put the top half of the caps on, and BAM! you have 50 Nolva caps @10mg p
er cap.
This applies to all gear...say you want 50 winny caps @ 25mg pre cap...same thin
g- (.39 x's 50= 19.5) and thats your filler weight. (25 x's 50= 1250mg, or 1.25
grams) thats your powder weight. Subtract 1.25 from 19.5= 18.25...so you need 18
.25 grams of protein powder and 1.25 grams fo winny powder...mix, cap and BAM!..
.50 winny caps @ 25mg each.
And there ya have it...once again a very easy way to make orals...have fun!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------Pharmaceutical Versions by SV-1 and Anabolic Master:

I thought I'd add this bit to what is becoming the "official" capping thread. Ev
ery powder/filler you work with will have different characteristics, so this wil
l help in figuring out how much you need for proper dosing. The pic at the botto
m is an example and shows a difference in powder weights/volumes.
Capsule Filling Powder Displacement:
A pharmacist receives a prescription for 15 mg piroxicam capsules, qty. 48.
A #1 capsule filled with piroxicam weighs 245 mg;
a capsule filled with lactose (filler) weighs 180 mg.
How much piroxicam and lactose are required for the prescription?
Prepare sufficient powder for 50 capsules (2 extra).
50 x 15 = 750 mg piroxicam.
15 = x
245 = 180
x = 11 mg
15 mg piroxicam occupies a similar volume as does 11 mg lactose.
180 mg - 11 mg = 169 mg lactose/capsule.
169 x 50 = 8.45 grams lactose required.
750mg piroxicam + 8.45 grams lactose = Total to make 50 caps @ 15mg piroxicam pe
r cap.
---------------------------------------------------------------------Here is the dumbed down version. What SV-1 posted is merely a guideline which ca
n be used in other situations. That's the difficulty, deciphering the important
concepts and adjusting them to your unique circumstance.
Here are the steps:
1) Fill a capsule with your filler, including tampering if you plan on doing so
with your 'real' capsules.
2) Determine how much filler weight occupies this specific capsule. This will gi
ve you a weight/volume ratio and you can determine the relative density of the f
iller.
3) Fill a capsule with your active ingredient (anadrol, DNP etc.), including tam
pering if you plan on doing so with your 'real' capsules.
4) Determine how much active ingredient weight occupies this specific capsule. T
his will give you a weight/volume ratio and you can determine the relative densi
ty of the active ingredient.
5) Now you have to do the 'more involved' math to determine the correct ratio of
filler to active ingredient.
1) Determine the dosage of active ingredient you'd like per capsule.
2) Say for example you want 10mg dianabol capsules. You've determined your fille
r density to be 500 mg per capsule and your active ingredient density to be 400
mg per capsule.
Now you have to set up the two equations and then cross multiply and solve for t
he unknown.
10 mg Dianabol = Unknown mg Filler

400 mg Dianabol = 500 mg Filler


10 mg Dianabol x 500 mg Filler = 400 mg Dianbol x Unknown mg Filler
(10 mg Dianabol x 500 mg Filler) / 400 mg Dianbol = Unknown mg Filler
Unknown mg Filler = 12.5 mg
NOW you take the total quantity of filler that will fit in one capsule and subtr
act the Unknown Filler amount we just calculated.
500 mg filler - 12.5 mg = 487.5 mg filler per capsule
Now you've got all the information you need to make 10 mg Dianabol capsules. For
every capsule you make you need 10 mg of Dianabol and 487.5 mg of filler, so fo
r 50 capsules just multiply these two numbers by a factor of 50.
------------------------------------------------------------------------Accurately mixing your powder posted by SV-1:
Originally posted on AU by pharmguy24:
"Geometric Dilution"
Mix all of the smaller powder with an (about) equal volume of the larger powder(
We shall call this the 'new mix'). Then, combine an equal amount of your 'new mi
x' with an equal volume of the larger powder(This makes mix #2). Now, combine mi
x #2 with an equal amount of the larger powder. Keep going like this until it's
all mixed. Then, you can put it into caps.
Why go through this extra work? Well try it at home with some pepper and salt. T
ry directly combining a small amount of pepper with about 8-100 times as much sa
lt. Now look at the pepper distribution in the salt. Does it ever look really ev
en no matter how much you mix. Unless you're really lucky, probably not. So, try
the geometric dilution method and see how much better that works and think abou
t that in terms of your powders and see which method you should really prefer.
----------------------------------------------------------------------Accurately weighing powders by SV-1:
I had another thought about this thread, and that was about the accuracy (or ina
ccuracy) of the scales we use. The methods looked at so far work great if you wo
rk in a compounding pharmacy and have access to extremely accurate (and extremel
y expensive) scales. But the scales most of us use are only accurate to +/- 100m
g (including mine).
In the above example a single capsule of piroxicam was weighed and it came out t
o 245mg. Well if you weigh that single dose on a +/-100mg scale the result could
be between 195mg-295mg (.2-.3 grams), A HUGE DIFFERENCE!
So how do we compensate for this?
Instead of weighing a single dose we'll weigh a complete batch, for a Capping Ma
chine that's 24.
Load 24 empty caps into the capping machine, then fill all 24 caps with your pow
der (for this example I'll stick with piroxicam). Then turn the capping machine
over and tap all the powder out and weigh it. It should weigh 5880mg (24x245mg=5
880mg).
Now the +/- 100mg isn't that big of a deal because the result will be between 58

30-5930mg.
Take this weight (5830-5930mg) and divide by 24.
5830/24 = 243mg
5930/24 = 247mg
So either way it's going to be VERY close to the 245mg you'd have gotten if your
scale was 100% accurate.
