First time col gold maker.. lots of questions
« on: June 30, 2018, 11:08:05 AM »
Hey,

    Ive got a korad 31v constant current machine. Im using a hot plate with a 2000ml beaker. Ive got a pure gold coin and a 14g copper wire. 

    I set my machine to 31v and .5 amps. Used a pinch of sea salt, a bigger pinch of sodium citrate and 2 drops of light cornsyrup. And 1600ml of distilled water. With that setup it went from clear to loght blue to purple in about 40 min.

     Next time i tried i went with same setup and .1 amps. It went clear to yellow to light green.

     Ideas?

You need a lot more corn syrup or maltodextrin to reduce and stabilize the gold. 
Why make such a large batch when you haven't worked out the procedure?
You should really weigh your salt and maltodextrin if you use it.

Colloidal Silver is only a bargain if you make it yourself.
