I have only done this a couple of times, but what I did was:

Made 30% acrylamide solution:
29g acrylamide
1g N,N'-methylenebisacrylamide
H2O to 100 mLs

The mini gels that I used required 5 mls of solution, and I ran 12% gels.  To do
this, I added 2 mLs of 30% acrylamide, 1.95 mLs of H20, 1 mL of 5X TBE, and 0.05
mLs of 10% Ammonium persulfate.  Add 2 microliters of TEMED, pour the gel, and
let it polymerize.  Put the gel in the tank with 1x TBE, and wash the wells out
with a syringe or pasteur pipet.  Load the samples with regular old DNA loading
dye, and run it.
