If you are using 10 lb mixes, if I understand that correctly, and you are adding around 300 grams of material to a mix you say Jim at East bay has already mixed, and you suggest it is mostly mixed by east bay, I think you're wrong. What I do think is that you're adding about 8% new materials to Jim's stuff in various semi hostile forms. In my mind, that''s a very large number. so, again, how are you mixing this new stuff in? What is your mixer?

Process is key in doing this stuff.
Where are we going and why am I in this basket?
