Oh fantastic info thank you
Will tweak this mornings brew accordingly.

I should have the sodium citrate string this morning
Is there an advantage to this over sodium carbonate?

Also would the solution be made the same as sodium carbonate (1m)
I did the 3.7 grams made up to 30ml of water for the sodium carbonate

Sodium citrate is not a replacement for sodium carbonate.

You can make gold with just sodium citrate, but its a slow process and must be continually boiled.  You might have to boil your solution for up to 15 minutes or so to insure complete conversion. Its known as the Turkevich method.  There is no advantage over the process you are already doing,

I demoed the Turkevich process on youtube 7 years ago.

Here's what I do on a daily basis:
This makes 2 doses, one for me and one for the misses.

Start with 1 pint cold distilled water.
Add the stir bar and start stirrer
Add 1 eyedropper squirt of 1 molar sodium carbonate  (about 10 drops... I do not obsess)
Add 1 eyedropper squirt of 50% Karo syrup
Add 2 ml (measured with a syringe) gold chloride solution from salt lake metals
Put in microwave on high for 3 1/2 to 4 minutes

Remove from microwave and gel cap by adding 1 tablespoon of premade gelatin mixture
Pour into two cups
Add teabags and sweeten to taste or drink plain.
Drink immediately.

To make the gelatin mixture:
Make 1 cup of 20 ppm colloidal silver, reduced with corn syrup
While at room temperature, put on stirrer set to 1000 rpm
Sprinkle 1 gram (1/4 tsp) Knox gelatin on top.
Turn on heater set to 200C
When gelatin is dissolved, (solution goes clear) remove from heat and remove spinner magnet.
Chill and save in refrigerator.

Thats what I do.  The only critical part is measuring the gold chloride, and a 1 ml measuring syringe (CVS has them and would probably give you one) is ideal.

This produces 2 10mg doses of colloidal gold.

Is it necessary to use a magnetic stirrer? Can you just use a plastic spoon and stir it really well.
Also the Gold chloride is it a 1% or 5% solution that you are referring to?
Thank You

Yes, you can use a plastic spoon or chopstick to stir it.

The formulas are for 1% gold chloride.

 Kephra,

  I figured this is the place to ask this question.  Is the gelatin solution supposed to remain clear while in the fridge?  I made a batch up with 20 ppm colloidal silver and when I went to use it it saw very cloudy/milky.  Did I screw up this incredibly simple procedure or is that what it’s supposed to look like?

The gelatin cools and crystalizes because its below its melting temperature. This makes it look cloudy.  When you add it to hot CG or colloidal silver, it remelts and caps the nanoparticles.

  Thanks for the quick reply sir.  I will know use it for the future batches of colloidal gold. Which btw has turned out perfect ruby red from the 1st batch using your simple method.  Woohoo!

Ok, glad to hear that.  You better post again so you're not the mark of the beast :)

Kephra,

 Good point!  Wife says post John 3:16!
