    Just from recent research, most pelleted carbon is VPC (vapour phase carbon) as apposed to LPC (liquid phase carbon) which we should use.

    12x40 mesh Acid Washed Lignite or
    12x40 mesh Acid Washed Bituminous is the preferred choices. Lignite is softer but more potent.

    If you do find a supplier of the above pm me as I called 2 major manufactures but none stock it.
