    I think that is quite possibly the worse gainer I have seen in a long time. I use ultra-fine oats, and a whey/egg/casein blend. For fats I'll eat a load of unsalted mixed nuts at the same time. I think this is a pretty decent formula. 

    You could also blend fruit with oats and an unflavoured protein. Add or eat nuts separably - no need for these ice-cream/peanut butter monsters with double the RDA of fat in them.

    It's a very fat-laden shake, but it certainly gets the job done! (adds calories).

    I can't think of many average trainees that would need to add such a shake to their diet on top of their food intake.

    A more sensible way of approaching making your own gainer is to think about what else it needs to provide besides additional calories, then build it from there based on the answers to your questions... things to think about:

    e.g. Is it replacing a meal? Does it need to have a mixture of different proteins? What ratio of fats, protein and carbohydrates does it need? Source of dietary fibre? Probiotics? Would it be taken pre-training? etc etc

    Has a look at James's super smoothies, very nutritious and taste great with lots of cals in.

    Not really a gainer, just a convenient breaky for me.
    Cup of oats, 2 scoop of whey, creatine, flaxseed, Almonds.

    I'm down working in Bradford most weeks - I'll pop in and have a bit craic with you.
     
    To answer the OP. this is a pretty good gainer:
     
    40G Protein Blend (Choc / Choc Mint)
    500ml Gold Top Milk
    50G Peanut Butter
    100G Oats
     
    Add some water if consistency is too thick.
