How to prepare Red Band Pigeon Conditioner

How to prepare Red Band Pigeon Conditioner (correctly).

I see so much 'advice' about the 'correct' way to prepare Red Band Pigeon Conditioner suggesting that you simply need to put the Red Band in a freezer box, pour on boiling water, leave for 24 hours and bingo! the bait will be ready.

 
Correctly prepared Red Band

Well it may be 'ready' for the lazy anglers who advocate this, but it certainly will not be ready for anyone who wants to get the very best out of this incredible seed blend. First soak for 24 hours, then bring to the boil and then simmer for 30 minutes. This releases the sugars and glutens from the seeds, which are what the carp and other coarse fish find so attractive.
 
Prepared Red Band

Prepared correctly, Red Band will get so gooey that you will be able to turn the saucepan upside down without it spilling... and just LOOK at the close-up photo of the correctly prepared bait.
