    Steeping is not done to "boil" off ethers, it is to allow the molecules (ingredients) which make up a vaping liquid to  meld and form the smooth flavor(s) you are looking for.  Remember, most of the juice is PG and VG and that is what you are trying to flavor and what will be vaporized by the PV.  As an example,  peach concentrate takes between 4 and 6 WEEKS to reach full flavor.

   If you want to test the steeping benefit:  Mix a multi-flavor (concentrate) juice.  Try a small sample right after mixing and then every day, at approximately at the same time, each day for the next 7 days.  When it smooths out and taste like the final version of the juice will depend on the flavor you choose to make.  Let us know how your experiment goes.

          Eric

       After I posted the above, it dawned on me that someone was going to point out there are alcohol based concentrates and leaving the bottle open allowed them to evaporate.  All that is true, except it is unnecessary.  Alcohol boils off at 140 degrees F and the coil in the atty or omizer runs somewhere around 1200 degrees F.  As I'm sure immediately realized any alcohol is long gone before the juice begins to form the vapor.

   I said to myself: Self what do you have or can get for cheap, that is orbital.  And self, being smarter than me, came back with . . . . . . an orbitial car waxing buffer.  That is what is shown in the pictures above.  About $10 bucks and it works like a champ.  Set your bottle or cylinder down on the pad, it stops turning and just orbits in a tight circle.   Heat your juice in hot water, then shake it on your orbital shaker and WA LA you are way ahead in the steeping cycle.

I read on another forum that they are using Ultrasonic Cleaners to steep the ejuice.  I pulled out my old jewelry cleaner and use warm water in the tank up to the line of liquid in the bottle (so they don't float) and let it run for a couple hours.  A lot of UC have cleaners that limit how long they run but my cheap one (from Target, I think) doesn't so I can run it as long as I want.  I let it run for 1 1/2 - 2 hrs then let it sit for an hour.  Replace the water so it's warm again and do it again. 

It seems to work well.  You get a bit of a color change as it steeps and you see that in a lot shorter time when you use the UC.  I repeat the process 3-4 times and it cuts out most of the steeping time.

I'm new here and learning a lot but I have a question about the use of vodka.  What is it being used for?  What kind of flavor (if any) is it adding to a DIY mix?  Don't get me wrong, I really LOVE vodka, lol, but never would have occurred to me to use it in e-juice.  Thanks.

It's good in the mix.  Make the vapes feel lighter and less greasy, improves throat hit a bit, and adds a nice subtle flavor.  For high VG mixes, it thins the mix making it a thinner consistency better for tanks.  I actually use Everclear 190 which adds even more of the alcohol effect since it's almost pure grain alcohol.  And no, the 190 is not going to get you buzzed, the concentrations aren't nearly high enough to cause any measurable blood alcohol level.  Typically you would not use more than 8% of the overall mix depending on how much VG is in the mix, more VG, more alcohol, less VG, less alcohol.

Some flavorings are PGA based so if you're using any of those, you may already be vaping juice with grain alcohol in it.

Hello Fellow Vapor's
 I am New here and i wanted to see if someone may be able to help me with a problem i am having with Mixing, Here is my dilemma..Thanks to everyone in Advance for any help.

My Nicotine is a 50% /50% mix @ 36mg and i am trying to figure out how i can make a batch of ejuice by adding all my flavors and PG and VG but add the Nicotine as needed for different Strengths..0mg...6mg...12mg...18mg.. Is there a way i can make my flavor base a head and add the Nicotine at different Strengths, or am i just gonna have to mix the flavor base and add the PG /Vg and Nicotine on the different Nicotine Strengths..

Hello Vaping Brethren,

    So I am new to the forum and I am also new to mixing my own flavors.  I was looking through the vaping calculator and saw that there was abbreviations after some of the flavors on some of the recipes.  I am guessing that has to do with the company that they are buying the flavors from.

So my question comes down to....    Is there like a table of contents or a key as to what companys what abbreviations go to?

I would be so appreciative if people could point me in the right direction.

Thank you for reading this..

Less PG will lessen the throat hit. Mix a small batch and experiment to find what works for you. Start with 50/50 and go from there.

I am sorry...
I have a littler bottle of 25% pg and 75% vg of 100mg of nicotine
My target is a 10ml bottle of 10mg.
How do I input these into the calculator seeing that I have flavor to add.
Does the flavor dilute my percentage of 25%pg and 75% vg or should I have a
certain percentage of pg and vg to add?      :begging:

Have you looked at the HOW TO

The first line of the calculator is where you enter your nic info. 25% in the PG box and 75% in VG. At the end of that same first line is where you will enter 100 for the mg box.

The second line you will enter 10 in the mg box which will be the target strength of your eJuice mix.

The third line is where you will enter 10 in the ml box. Which is the amount you want to make.

Below the Flav7 line is where you will enter the target PG/VG ratio for your final mix.

Adding flavoring which most likely will be 100% PG will change how much PG you will need to add.

Once your target PG/VG ratio is set. The calculator will automatically adjust PG and VG that needs to be added to maintain the target PG/VG ratio.

I have a question on the types of flavorings you can use to mix juices. I have purchased many flavorings from the usual vendors like Capella, Flavor West, Perf. Apprentice, etc.  Can the food flavorings from the grocery store also be used to mix juices?  Just wondering...
 :thankyou:

Hi all,

I might just be a complete doofus, but how do I start a new post?? I have a couple of different questions that should go in different places, and I didn't want to tack them on at the bottom of this thread...the Help instructions say that there should be a "New Topic" button at the top and bottom of the forum, but I don't see them, even when I'm logged in - help!! :)

I believe you need two prior postings before you will see the NEW TOPIC button

What I do is upload it to YouTube first. Then click the "Insert Hyperlink" in you message post and put the YouTube link between the hyperlink tags.

Actually you don't have to use the Insert Hyperlink. It will also work if you just paste the link of your Youtube video.

Steeping is very simple.  Just put your juice in a cool and dark place and just let it sit.  I usually shake the juice once a day to insure it is mixed well.  Most juices will take around 5 days to fully steep.  However, some juice's will take more or less time due to the ingredients used.  Best rule of thumb is 5 days.  The more familiar you are with your juice type, the easier it will be to know just how long your juice takes to fully steep and give you the best flavor.

You can put enough to satisfy your taste.  I wouldn't put 35% of either, but 1 to 2 % would give you an idea what it tastes like so you can decide to put more or less the next time.  Test it is small batches, like 5 mill or 10 mill.  That way if you hate it, you won't lose much.
