The ghetto method.

Re: orange juice. I doubt that what you take creatine with has much effect. As Ryano says, probably dissolving as much as you can is a good idea.

There has been a lot of hot air expended over how to take it: loading, with glucose, with/without caffeine, in hot vs cold drinks etc etc etc. As far as I'm aware, none of it makes much difference - some methods might mitigate against creatine creating gastric problems (for those vulnerable to those problems), but I don't think they affect its effectiveness one way or the other.
