maybe just get some Gulp Alive, seems to work really well. People I have talked to used a 50/50 salt brine and just put the minnows into it after it was disolved. Soaked them overnight.

first choice would be the gulp, other wise I know people who took table salt poured it in the bag covering the minnows.

Minnows in ziploc, drain all water. When dead, drain all water again. Make a mix of 2/3 canning salt and 1/3 borax, sprinkle over minnows. Let set for awhile and then drain liquid again.

Freeze. The borax keeps the minnows from getting mushy when thawed out.
