    Some sort of chemical conversion at high temperatures.

    BB is the second most common solvent next to Benzyl Alcohol. Not as strong as BA and much heavier. It's used primarily for its latent affects in the depot keeping the hormone in solution at the injection site after BA has leached from the depot. It is painless at low levels so is often added to solutions to keep hormone dissolved when BA cannot be added any further. Helps to keep the down somewhat in the shorter acting esters. Hope this helps.

    thank you sir,

    do you know what is usually in a Fina kit for the solvent? BA, BB, or a combo of both? and at what ratio?


    karma for the responses guys.

    FINA injectable conversion method with NO KIT...Big Daddy Chemo Style
    There seems to be a surge in fina interest and a few threads on conversion kits. This thread is meant to give OPTIONS to those that are serious...
    As posted in an earlier thread for response:
    Homebrew Fina without the kit
    Purpose:
    To dispel the myth of having to purchase a kit for fina conversion.
    Items Needed:
    1. Oil of choice (cottonseed, peanut, sesame, vegetable, etc.)
    2. Benzyl alcohol
    - bacteriostatic agent and solvent
    3. Benzyl benzoate
    - cosolvent that helps to alleviate crystallization at the depot
    4. 2 syringe needles
    5. 1 .45 um sterile syringe filter
    6. 1 syringe (30 mL or larger)
    7. 1 vial (25 mL or large, preferably sterile)
    8. Fina
    Procedure:
    1. Take ~50 mL of oil and heat in the microwave until hot. This is done to sterilize the oil to be used. You can use a small Pyrex dish (with cover) from Wal-mart, large shot glass, etc. Be careful when removing because it will burn. After removal immediately cover (with saran wrap, plastic lid, etc.) to maintain some degree of sterility.
    2. With the oil still warm (not hot) mix 30 mL of 5% benzyl alcohol, 15-20% benzyl benzoate, and 75-80% sterile oil.
    i.e. - 1.5 mL BA + 6 mL BB + 22.5 mL oil = 30 mL of BA/BB/oil
    A syringe may by used to measure the amounts with great convenience.
    3. Use 10 mL of this solution to soak and crush the pellets. If this is done quickly the solution may still be warm and aid in extraction. If not, gently heat may help. Simply boil a pot off water, remove the water from the heat, and swirl the fina pellets/BA/BB/oil mix around for a few minutes.
    4. Allow to settle and remove the layer of oil. Don’t worry about getting ALL the oil. It is more important to keep from sucking up the sediment at the bottom. Place this oil into a sterilized container (big shot glass that has been microwaved) and cover.
    5. Use an additional 10 mL of the BA/BB/sterile oil mix and repeat steps 3 & 4.
    6. After adding the oil mix and extracting 2 times you may want to dump the sludge into a coffee filter and gently squeeze to remove additional fina.
    7. There should be a combined ~ 20 mL of BA/BB/oil/fina in the sterilized shot glass now. Suck all this up in the syringe and measure what you have. If it is less than 20 mL add more oil (from step #1) until it is EXACTLY 20 mL. If you have 20 on the dot don’t worry about adding any more.
    8. Sterile filter this 20 mL into a vented vial.
    9. Get an additional 5 mL of oil (from step #1) and send it through the filter as well. This flushes the good stuff out of the filter (purging). You now have 25 mL of good stuff TOTAL in the vial.
    10. While still vented, heat the vial in the oven at 200 degrees for 30 minutes. Remove and allow to cool. Do this a total of 3 times.
    11. After it has cooled, ENJOY 76-80 mg/mL OF HOMEBREWED GOODNESS!
    Some helpful hints:
    It is best to be as clean as possible when making homebrew injectables. BA and the heating step at the end go a long way for sterilization but cannot stand up to a slob.
    Use the BB. Homebrew injectables have a long standing history with BA alone but it is miscible with water. After injection the BA leaves the depot site which is not too bad if using a long chain ester. Fina has an acetate (2 carbons long) and tends to crystallize at the depot without a solvent or cosolvent = PAIN. The BA leaves the depot after injection but the BB hangs around to keep the fina in solution = LESS PAIN. I have prepared 200 mg/mL and the pain is less than 100 mg/mL with just BA...I can tell by the cows moo
    For those familiar with kits notice that these are basically the same steps. The only difference is that you now know what “magic ingredients” are in YOUR magic solution…BA + BB (bacteriostatic agent / solvent / cosolvent).
    Chemo
    BTW, this is best employed by those that do not prepare large quantities at a time (a cycle or two's worth). For larger quantities there are alternative methods that I will post given sufficient interest.
