Making BIG Batches of Colloidal Silver for About a Penny Per Ounce

Making BIG Batches of Colloidal Silver for About a Penny Per OunceLast week my wife Kathy and I made two, two-and-a-half gallon batches of colloidal silver, side-by-side, using our Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generators. The first photo shows the two, 2.5 gallon containers uncovered, with the Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generators on top.

Making BIG Batches of Colloidal Silver for About a Penny Per OunceThe second photo shows the two containers with pillow cases wrapped around them to keep the light out during the colloidal silver-making process, since we were making them in a room that’s normally brightly lit most of the day.

When completed, we had a whopping 5 gallons worth of high-quality micro-particle colloidal silver, at a total cost of about $5.

Hi, Steve Barwick here, for The Silver Edge

Yes, that’s five dollars for five full gallons worth of colloidal silver, simply by making it ourselves with a Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator.

Compare that to health food store prices of $20 or $30 for a tiny four-ounce bottle of colloidal silver, and you’ll see why I always say if you’re going to use colloidal silver extensively, then you should always make it yourself for about 25 cents a quart with a high-quality Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge.

Indeed, rather than paying exorbitant health food store prices of $7 to $10 per ounce, you can quite literally make your own high-quality micro-particle colloidal silver for about a penny per ounce!

Here are some of the questions I received when I posted the above photos to the Colloidal Silver Secrets Group on Facebook:

Question: Why do you make so much colloidal silver?

Answer: Because my wife and I use it for just about everything from household disinfection to facial skin rejuvenation to treating topical and internal infections both in ourselves as well as in our rescue dogs.

My wife even adds colloidal silver to the rinse cycle of the laundry when she washes the kitchen and bathroom wash rags and towels, or bed sheets, or undergarments and more.

She also uses it on her outdoor garden plants, to help get rid of aphids, tomato fungus, and other pests and problems. Not only do the plants grow faster and stronger, but the fruits and veggies they produce are absolutely superb compared to the past when she didn’t use colloidal silver in the garden.

We’ve even used colloidal silver on our outdoor mulch pit to get rid of gnat hatchlings.

And of course, we give away quarts of colloidal silver at a time to friends, family members, neighbors, co-workers and others.

In fact, no matter where we’ve lived, we’ve ended up being just about the most popular people on the block once our neighbors have found out that we can make colloidal silver for about 25 cents per quart.

The bottom line is that safe, natural colloidal silver is our #1 go-to resource for dealing with an innumerable number of things around the house that would otherwise require expensive (and potentially toxic) chemical products or prescription drugs.

Question: Why do you cover the large containers while making the colloidal?

Answer: When you buy colloidal silver from a health food store, you’ll notice it’s always sold in dark glass or sometimes dark plastic bottles. That’s because the manufacturers know the silver will retain its potency almost indefinitely as long as it’s not exposed to bright light.

Since it takes 30 hours of production time to make a large, two-and-a-half gallon batch of colloidal silver, like those above, it’s vital to keep bright light off the production container while colloidal silver is being made.

Otherwise, prolonged exposure to bright room light or sunlight can cause silver particles to “tarnish” and ultimately fall out of suspension over time, which of course, can destroy the effectiveness of your colloidal silver.

So if we don’t have a completely dark room available in which to make colloidal silver (which is preferable), we instead cover the glass production container with anything that helps keep bright light out. And it works like a charm!

For the same reason, once you’ve made some colloidal silver it should also be stored in either dark glass storage containers, or kept in a dark cabinet out of bright light.

Question: What brew time are you using for 2.5 gallon batches?

Answer: I usually use 30 hours for a 2.5 gallon batch. That’s three hours for every quart of colloidal silver you’re “brewing.”

The Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge will actually run for days at a time with no problem, though most people use them to make the standard one-quart batches which take only three hours to produce 7-10 ppm colloidal silver.

Question: Where do you find those large 2.5 gallon glass cookie jars you’re using to make colloidal silver in?

Answer: You can find them on, or any number of other online retailers. Since they’re widely available from different vendors (and at different prices) the easiest thing to do is to go to and use their search engine to search for “1 gallon glass cookie jars” or “2.5 gallon glass cookie jars” or whatever you want. They almost always have them.

Making BIG Batches of Colloidal Silver for About a Penny Per OunceAnother idea is to search for “1 gallon glass fermentation jar.” These oversized glass jars are usually used for fermenting Kombucha tea.

I haven’t used these one-gallon glass fermentation jars yet for making colloidal silver. But they look perfect for the task. And at the time of this writing, they’re available on (priced from $5.50 to $11.57 each). They look like they’d be perfect for making gallon-sized batches of colloidal silver.

Making BIG Batches of Colloidal Silver for About a Penny Per OunceAnd yes, oftentimes there’s even gallon-sized Ball canning jars on Just search for “Ball 125th Anniversary Collector’s Jar 1 Gallon.” These even come with a cool metal lid with a plastic insert on the inside, so you don’t have to search for plastic lids.

Important safety note: You have to make sure that the mouth of the jar is small enough that the generator itself cannot fall into the water, or be accidentally knocked into the water during the colloidal silver-making process, which could result in a potential shock or electrocution hazard. The mouths on the half gallon and gallon-sized Ball canning jars are fine. I’ve already checked them out, and I’ve used them myself for making large batches of colloidal silver with a Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge. But you’ll have check on the measurement of the mouth of any other large jars you might come across, to make sure they’re not wider than the generator itself (i.e., 4 ½ inches). There’s no need to risk life-and-limb making colloidal silver, when it’s otherwise such a safe and simple task.

Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator - World-Wide Praise for Colloidal Silver from Clinical ResearchersQuestion: Can you make smaller batches?

Answer: Yes, of course. The Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge was actually designed for making one-quart of colloidal silver at a time, in three hours of production time. Its ability to maker larger-sized batches is just icing on the cake, so to speak.

You can use a one-quart wide-mouthed glass Mason jar or Ball canning jar to make these smaller batches. Here’s a short 3-minute video demonstrating how to make normal, one-quart batches of colloidal silver, quickly and easily.

You can even buy two-quart (i.e., half gallon) Mason jars or Ball canning jars at Walmart or other stores (or online at, and make double-sized batches simply by letting the generator run twice as long (i.e., for six hours for a half gallon instead of the usual three hours for a quart).

Or, you can watch the short video at this link (i.e., How to Make Big Batches of Colloidal Silver) to learn more about making the extra-large batches of colloidal silver (i.e., gallon-sized or larger) with a Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge.

The video at the above link explains how long your pure silver rods need to be when making larger than usual batches…how you can quickly calculate the length of time you’ll need to let the generator run for different sized batches…and some important safety tips, as well.

One final tip for making large batches: When you make extra-large batches of colloidal silver (i.e., half-gallon sized or larger), you’ll likely end up with lots of silver oxide tarnish on your silver rods by the end of the process. Silver oxide tarnish on the silver rods is a normal part of the colloidal silver-making process. And the longer your generator needs to run, the more of it you’ll see on the silver rods. What’s more, when making larger batches, some of the extra silver oxide tarnish that’s produced will inevitably fall off the rods and drop to the bottom of the production jar when you lift the generator at the end of the production process. Don’t worry. It’s no big deal. The silver oxide is harmless. And it will sink to the bottom of the jar because there’s no electrical charge on it to keep it in suspension. So once you’ve finished making an extra-large, gallon-size or bigger batch of colloidal silver, and begin to pour it into your storage containers, when you get down to the last inch or so of colloidal silver at the bottom of the jar where the silver oxide tarnish has accumulated, simply pour it through an unbleached paper coffee filter as shown in this short video titled Filtering Your Colloidal Silver Solution. The paper coffee filter will filter out the silver oxide particles perfectly, allowing you to capture that last inch or so of colloidal silver so as not to waste it.
