Maybe next time I order base I will buy the nicotine seperate and add it as the calculator shows to get the 12mg that i want thanks for your helpI will keep trying mixing to get better at it.....
I have a question about mg... If I follow the recipe and I test the stuff and it is lower than what I wanted how many drops of nic juice will I add if the base juice is 48mg/l. for simplicity I want to make 1 ml of 24mg/l of juice. I noticed that 20 drops = 1ml what is the ratio of non-nic to nic to reduce or increase potency?
in my venture to attempt doin some diy one of my regular vendors totally wicked e-liquid offered a sale on a diy kit 4 fluid ozs. each pg/vg,50 ml. 54mg/ml. platinum ice pg based nic. mixing liquid your coice 5/10 ml. bottles of gold standard flavors.so now i just need to get all my measurements right and start my own diy juicey juice
erck 89 thanks for the help i was curious is there somewhere that shows like the calculator and what to put exactly where out there somewhere kinda like a guideline to go by?
edsendemic: First, lets establish which calculator you are using. This is to allow me to get on the same page with you. At the top of the calculator form, kit should say "e-Juice Calculator" and the first line says "Enter Your Amounts". If we are not on the same calculator, I need for you to get the e-juice calculator, available thru a link on the forum. I believe we are on the right calculator. Next, check your nicotine bottle. It should have sticker on it that says "24mg in PG" or a statement to that effect on the bottle's label. DO not confuse the issue by providing the size of hte bottle (i.e., "60ml"). If it is 24mg, enter that number in the very first box, in the upper right of the form and directly below the 'Print Image" box framed in blue. On that same line, where it says "PG %", put 100. The next line is labeled "Target Nicotine strenth" . At the far right, enter the nicotine content you desire the finished product to contain. In this case, enter "6". Your finished juice should now have 6mg or 6% nicotine. On the line "Amount to Make" enter the size of the batch you are making (3, 6, 8, 10, 12, 15, etc) in the box proceeding the "mg" label. Next enter the name of each of the concentrates you are going to use in you juice, one to a line. DO NOT enter anything else on an individual name line, except all the way to the right in the box adjacent to the last % mark. This is a percentage of the total amount of flavor concentrates to be added to the dilutants. Not a percentage of the total bottle volume. Last step before we hit the button. In the lower half of the forum, there are two lines that determine how much dilutent, PG and VG, will be in the final mix. In either box put the number 50. You indicated you wanted a 50/50 mix so we don't have be concerned where the 50 is entered. Hit the "Calculate" button at the bottom of the page and read your recipe for 6ml of x juice, with 6mg nicotine, and a 50/50 base mix. With few exception, your mix will need to step from 48 hours to 4 to 6 weeks before it will reach it's final flavor. The concentrate requiring the longest steeping time is Peach. What you are doing when you steep a mix is allowing the chemicals (e.g., molecule) to oxidize and melt with the other flavor molecules of the mix. I hope you find this helpful. Happy mixing (it is fun) and happy vaping. Eric
This is my first day on the forum (just found it) and I've been reading non-stop for about 3 hours and have learned A LOT!Looking forward to collecting lots of valuable nuggets from everyone and (hopefully) sharing things I figure out too.Nancy
thank you breaktru i see on the right side it shows 0 for pg diluent
Yuck, that is very smart, not to mention cool. But. Don't get hung up on the numbers. Especially, mixing singles. When you mix a single, start with 18 to 22% on your flavor concentrate. You may find your pg neg. problem goes away. The only time you want to start with a lower % is if the concentrate is a super concentrate. Then you will start down around 5%. Try this: Make a 1 ml test batch of: 13 drops PG = .65ml PG 6 drops VG = .3ml VG 1 drop flavor concentrate = 0.05ml That gives you a 5% flavor profile. For a 10%, add 2 drops of concentrate, etc.. For each added drop of flavor concentrate, eliminate 1 drop of the PG (unless you are buying 100% VG based concentrates. Then you would eliminate a drop of VG.). 3 drops = 15%, 4 drops = 20%, etc. What you have just mixed is a 70/30 test mix. This also makes it easier to see why the negative PG message. (i.e., At 50/50 the it would be 9 drops Pg 10 drops VG Add 1 drop of flavor to this flavor concentrate with a VG component and your PG drops below 10 and you get the Negative PG message. I am not absolutely certain. but I believe that concentrates are made in a base that contains "some" VG. You can lie to the calculator and the message won't come up. On each flavor line you use, check the 100% PG box between the flavor name and the % box. Now you don't get the message, but you really are not 50/50 either. Hope this helps. Eric
OK I still do not understand why the calculator gives a neg number for pg, when you put that your nic base is 100% VG, your target blend id 100 VG and the flavoring has no pg.
Your up Dave. Be gentle.
Search for FlavoringLooking for a recipe to support your flavors on hand?Use this: Harddisk Search and Stats Freeware software to find it. http://www.harddisksearch.com/This program does not need to be installed. Just extract the file contents into a new folder and create a shortcut to the file HDSearchAndStats.exeType each flavor on a new line and HDsearch&Stats will search inside the recipe files for your search word or words.Results:Harddrive Search and Stats can be downloaded here: http://www.harddisksearch.com/
This program is the bomb. It is easy to understand and work with. My problem is not with the calculator at all but lack of experience. Even working with single flavors they taste rather bland and lack sweetness. So I add more flavoring and sweetener, then more and then more. Before long what I am vapping is not even close to the recipe I started with. As of yet I have not made a single brew that was right from the get go. I have adjusted 10 to 15 times some times before I get something I like. I am using only fruit flavors thus far and that is okay because that is what I like but I like them real fruity and rather sweet and seems to be a problem . Any ideas?...............Bruce
love this calculator, maby i'm paranoid but has any one found any information on weather these flavorings are safe for our lungs. as in our stomachs have hydrochloric acid but our lungs do not. i would love to do flavorings but are they safe for our lungs.
If you buy flavors concentrates made in the USA, Europe, and from only DeKange or Hugan (I know, I spelled them wrong. Will correct the spelling in a follow-up post unless someone else put in the correct spelling) in China, you are good unless they are oil based. DO NOT buy oil based flavors/extracts. Lor Ann use to have oil based flavors, but I read, just yesterday, they longer offer any oil based concentrates for vaping. Same article mentioned FlavorArt as offering one or two oil based concentrates, but clearly mark them not for vaping. VZ's super concentrates are all acceptable as far as I have been able to determine. Bottom line: Stay away from Chinese juices and oil based concentrates and you'll be OK.
thank you very much for the quick response, but i was actually searching for some links to tests done showing that these food flavorings are harmless to the lungs. i don't think they exist but I'll keep searching.
