    To make floating pellets sink, you can put some in a polythene bag and only just covered in water, tie the bag tight, making sure the pellets cannot move about, place in fridge overnight, and they will be soft and hookable in the morning, to make them sink, squeeze lightly. Doing this expels any air that may left in them, As for a homemade method mix, just use ground pellets and flavouring of your choice.

    There are lots of recipes on my blog try THIS one to start with. I use it all the time for carp on a feeder. You should be able to get all the ingredients or something similar.

    Hmmm... Where did that one go?

    Scrounge small bits of likely local cheap ingredients - breads, chick-pea flour ("gram" or "besan" in many parts), cornmeal, rice flour, ground-up biscuits and cereals, if available (especially Corn Flakes) and whatever the locals feed their chickens, or use to bulk out their dog-food.
    Then get experimenting, find out what binds groundbait together (the maize derivatives, cornflakes and cornmeal would be a good starting point, if available) and what falls apart (bran, biscuit meal); try blending them to get a mix that holds together for ten or twenty minutes, and use that as a starting-point.
    Also , consider trying to combine pulses (chick-pea flour and bean-meals) with grains; this tends to supply a better range of amino-acids than grain or pulse alone (think beans-on-toast, rice-and-peas, rice and lentil curry - this trick is why vegetarians can survive).
    Once you've got a nice blend (chickens and wild birds will soon tell you if it's any good, without you having to go fishing) you might like to mix the dry mix with egg, and boil briefly to make your own, themed boilies. Adding salt doesn't hurt, either, it preserves boilies and attracts fish).
    P.S. Over here, carp LOVE chick-peas, and bread.
    P.p.s.: Carp prefer fermenting food over putrefying; bung a bit of yeast in a small batch of your blend, and see if it develops extra attraction. Especially true of tinned sweetcorn...
