It’s not a great smell, if you use and put in the drinkers in the morning you will have to give the water a stir at feeding time as it sort of sinks to the bottom of the drinkers, so you have to remix it into the water. Only my opinion. Hope it helps.

You'll get used to the smell Jimbo, I mix mine onto the feed as its easier than putting it into the drink as it sinks to the bottom after only a short time.

Glad to hear its meant to stink, i didnt want to risk putting on the feeding in case it was bad. i guess the wife will just have to suffer the smell

Onto the feed - smells a bit like 'strong' yoghurt crossed with beer
You only need 5ml to a kilo of corn - a little goes a long way, I use it almost every day - about 5 times a week - and a bottle lasts me several months
