Good info guys.

Asa is right on (as usual), some of it will crystalize very quickly. I have seen it go from liquid to crystal in seconds, while running a weasel line in cold weather, pulling it out of a pocket and letting the sub zero air/wind hit it.

It does seem to call critters though... Plus it is fun to say.

I don't know if anise will explode or not but I once had a quart bottle of genuine spearmint oil delivered in sub zero temperatures and as soon as I went to heat it up the whole bottle exploded all over everything in the room. At least the lure building didn't smell like skunk, red fox and mink musk for a while, the spearmint overpowered everything for months until it nearly drove me crazy.

Anise solidifies, or freezes at 59 degrees F., this is a criterion value of anise.


The Anise sat in 5the shed all winter under them temps...And then solidified when I took of the cap to add to a lure....So exposure must play a part too

It is much stronger them what I am used to as well....
Now I have a 5 gallon pale of food lure that smells different then Last years.....basically unproven......
Hats of to you guys like Lt, Dobbins and ACE...and others that make consistent lure year after year....

Anise is in the same family group as carrots. It is the anise seeds that are distilled for the aromatic oil.

Re:". . . the spearmint overpowered everything for months until it nearly drove me crazy."

Sir, how do you know that it only "nearly drove me crazy"?

sounds like it needs the temp and oxygen to solidify.

My anise locked up this morning!
I went out this morning and set some rat traps. I pulled a new 4 oz. bottle out of my pack and put some on a cotton ball. Before I could get the top back on it solidified. Pretty cool, never seen that before. Temp was about 39F humidity near 100%. Had the consistency of soft paraffin. When I got home I nuked it for 40 seconds (cap off) and it liquefied again.

Mr. Lenon,

I visit when these miss-begotten-sons-of-electrons let me get on the internet and allow this computer to run for a minute or two; all at the same time!

Hope you and Maria are staying healthy and happy

Heimbrock
