Well, from everything I could find, the only risk as compared to monohydrate is that it might not work as well, and since monohydrate did nothing whatsoever for me in prior attempts, it seemed worth a shot. Started on C-HCL 2 days ago... will report back my anecdotes...

I never noticed any difference on C-HCL. Didn't notice much of anything after using it up either, though not sure it was really conclusive from just that 1 month.

It was to do with the amount absorbed as creatine isn't always absorbed well but I don't think it's worth having 20 servings a day about it, it would make little difference if any in performance but pretty interesting for elite athletes maybe.

ok so do you need carbs to absorb creatine properly or not?

I would say no. Although carbs would cause a spike in insulin causing you to be in an absorbative state, I don't think it would cause a significant increase in creatine absorption. If your main priority is to minimise carbs I don't think it would be neccessary. If you're worried about creatine absorption just have more of it, it's dirt cheap. I have it after training with dextrose or just plain whey if I'm cutting.
