And you still drink it?
I haven't noticed the old sock smell....
I have often just hung my Camelbak back up in the closet for easily over a week with 50 .oz out of 100 without issue.
Tailwind says to drink it within 5 days or so....but to keep it in the fridge.
Also forgot to add, this last order I got my free single sample and well as one of these:
Perfect for the frigid temps we've been experiencing.
You guys are scaring me... Wash those packs, you piggies! I empty my bottles after every ride and rinse/wash them out. When I first started with the magic powder, I noticed that the flavor changed if I kept one too long- even in the fridge. That can't be good...
Actually just the opposite....works great in the heat. Super thin and wicks the moisture. My wife wore it the other day as a bandanna on her head.
I keep any unused bottles in the fridge....up to about 4 days....after that I usually toss it and start over.
I just saw that on Facebook. In other news I ordered some Tropical Buzz. Emphasis on the buzz.
I'm usually not a fan of the "fruit punch" taste, but that one is good... Not too sweet!
Best marketing ever I'm ordering some.
Sent that pic to my wife and her reaction was...
"I am surprised you haven't triggered any alarms at the airport yet with your "energy dense" gas explosions."
Hah, glad to hear I wasn't the only one baffled by the zip-no-lock closure! I can use that binder clip for something else...
Anyone here use Skratch Labs? For whatever reason, Tailwind doesn't agree with Jennifer. She tried a couple sample packs of Skratch Labs and so far, so good.
I used Skratch Labs in 2013 and 2014 at the 24 Hours at the Old Pueblo endurance races because it was part of my schwag bag. However, I have no useful info for you since I never used it beyond the freebies given to me. I'm just using this as an opportunity to boast about my endurance prowess and that the "Dio Beater Defeater" emerged victorious.
Awesome. Good for you. Thanks anyways.
I have used Skratch before, and have a bag of it. It kinda upset my stomach, so gets used only occasionally. Tailwind has been my go to, but I need to mix in the very weak side or it makes me kind of dizzy. I don't know why, but it does.
Lately I'm using Hydration Multiplier from Costco. It was a gift a couple years ago and just in the last few weeks started adding it to the bottle. It has a strong taste, but if I mix at half the recommended than it's pretty good, not too strong and does the trick.
So, bottom line, I'm a Hydration mix Ho and have no loyalty.
Herzalot is a Skratch guy IIRC.
Skratch when I just want to hydrate before a ride, Tailwind when things get serious*.
* Serious for me means over 3200' of climbing. A warm up lap for most of you.
I've been using Skratch for a couple years--products with maltodextrin are hard on my stomach. Skratch recently came out with 'Superfuel' which is 400 calories. I like that it still has a light taste and not tons of sodium. Only tried it on a few long rides, but so far so good. Only con is that it takes 7 scoops for 1 serving, so not cheap. Usually use Skratch to drink and honey stinger gels together.
