    Default Drink to mix-in Creatine?

    After I workout, I mix 5g Creatine in with my post-workout protein shake, and it mixes in great. However, the other 4 days of the week I try to mix it in water with pretty much no success…it feels like I’m drinking sandy water, and a significant portion of the Creatine adheres to the bottom of the glass, even after re-filling the glass.

    Is there a different drink that I can mix the Creatine into besides water that’ll actually lead to the Creatine dissolving?

    What kind of creatine are you using?

    Creatine Monohydrate, either from Thorne or Bulk Supplements.

    I'm using creatine monohydrate from Bulk Labs that is unflavored. I've given up trying to dissolve it. I'm hoping you find a good solution. On lifting days I dump it in with my pre workout stimulant. But on the other days I just choke it down. I try to make a game out of how much of it I can swallow in one gulp, hahaha.

    I'm a weirdo and I literally just dump the scoop in my mouth and wash it down with a drink. I find if I try to mix it in too much it ends up collecting on the glass.

    Why don’t you just have a protein drink on your off days too? Mix it in that.

    Try a micronized. Could be whatever filler they are putting in the product.

    My experience is this is the easiest. The bulk labs stuff has not taste I've noticed and we should all be drinking so much water that it's easy to wash down. Now BCAAs, different subject, very bad taste, hahaha.

    You're still buying creatine when a 2 lb bag is now $55 + tax?
