So as my Gump head understands it the PG being so high the closest I can get is nearly a 70pg 30vg mix!I trust your familiar with the saying "a little knowledge is dangerous" lol
Hi I am trying to get the ejuice program on my computer. I use Mac I have gotten the app for my phone but it looks like there are more options on the computer program. Is there a version for Mac or can someone tell me how I can get it to run on the mac?
I'm new to mixing so bare with me. I considering purchasing 50/50 w/60mg nic. I don't understand how it works with the calculator. I would like to have my ejuice 10ml come out as 50PG/50VG and 18mg nicotine with 1 flavor. What I don't understand is under results it says I have to add 2.5ml PG and 3.5ml VG ?Do I have to purchase separate PG and VG to add.uggh confused
Being able to save your recipes -- even test ones -- is a great feature of eJuice Me Up. Before I discovered Dave's fine program, I was trying to keep a written log of my experiments and recipes and per usual, I eventually forgot to write things down and ended up with a mess trying to remember which flavors I used and how much, etc. eJuice Me Up is so very intuitive to use and has more features than you can shake a stick at. I've been using it exclusively for several years now. Looked at some others but they did not come close to the quality and features of eJuice Me Up. Sorry for jumping in, but just had to let you know what a great calculator it is and you sure can not beat the price. I thank you again for that, Dave!!!!
After having a little time to read through different posts and getting an idea of how this works it's FANTASTIC and thank you!
If I have 99.8% nicotine and enter 998 and want a 70/30 (p/v) target, I don't know how to make sure the pg/vg result is accurate since the 99.8% starter is not cut with pg or vg. Do I leave it set to the default 100% PG or change it to 50-50. Is there a way to zero it? I just want to make sure my base PG/VG is accurate.Thank you!
Pure Nicotine is poisonous.Since there is no 0/0 for PG/VG, use 50/50 and 998mg. Set your target ratio to 70/30.Please be careful handing Pure nicotine. It is extremely dangerous and I do not recommend it's use. Read WARNING
First: what a great calculatorsecondly: sorry but my English is not so goodMy question: is it possible to open a saved note to a liquid directly in the calculator program?when I click the Notes button always opens the note unknown.textGreetings Fipps
Welcome to the forum Fipps.When you click the Notes tool it will open a new "Untitled" notepad page. Save your Notes with the same name as your recipe in the same folder as the recipes. When you have notes for recipes saved with notepad, you will then use "File", "Open" to find the note.
Thanks for answerSo there is no automatic linkage - that would be a highlight in the future
I have found that if I'm mixing more than one recipe, I can open multiple windows by clicking on the Desktop Icon again and have side to side calculator recipes opened. Neat!
I have a recipe that requires 9 flavors. Is there a way to add more flavor windows? (Please tell me I don't have to learn Visual Basic to realize this!)
Wow 9 flavors. Sounds excessive. Can you even make out the flavors with 9?You can put two flavors on one line. As an example, for the Flavor Name you can detail Orange 2% - Peach 2% and for the amount box put 4% etc...
Yes, I can make out the flavors. Some flavors complement others.So the answer is "no"?Would you please consider adding the option, "Add More Flavors" & a convenient button in your next iteration of this fine software? (I haven't seen this fact on these pages: one ml = 1 cc.)
I welcome all suggestions and I thank you for your suggestion. Perhaps in a future update. What I worry about is the length of the form and not being totally viewable to some users that use a low screen resolution. I would have to do a total reface of the calculator layout to fit everything.
What a relief. Wen I signed on to this forum and saw the date on this thread, I was disappointed. I thought I had missed a chance to chime in. I was happy to find out it was still alive. Before I started mixing, I researched calculators until I was blue in the face. Out of all of them, This one is the BEST. Every time I teach someone to mix, I take them to this calculator and make them download the calculator and bookmark the site. Thank You Breaktru. That said, I would love to see a change that would allow 0% PG to be entered in the "Target PG" area.. The only PG I use is what is in the flavors and nicotine.
I have a huge screen and still it's too long for mine, but I know how to move things around on my screen so it's no problem (and it's free so I can't complain!)But I have complete faith in your ability to tweak it and make it more horizontal next go 'round.
Hi,I wanted to say thank you for taking your time and creating this amazing software.I've been vaping for over a year and recently decided to make my own E-Liquid so I found out about your software and downloaded it.The only problem I have is my nicotine strength level which is 18mg. When I enter the amount and '0' as the target; after calculation it won't show the amount of PG and VG that I need to add to my new mix. Does that mean I need to add the nicotine and the flavor then fill up the rest of the bottle with my VG/PG mix?I'm using 18mg unflavored nicotine and my VG/PG mix is 50/50 already and I want 10% flavor in my mix.Thanks again and I'll appreciate your help.Sean
That makes perfect sense. For some reason I knew my nicotine strength was the problem. I will figure out something and order higher level for next time.You're the best,Thanks
I noticed that. I just changed the Nicotine strength to 36 and put 18 as target. I'm thinking to double the amount it's giving me. I'm not sure if it works that way but I'll let you know if I ended up in the ER lol[/quoteOK C: Sorry BT, hope you don't mind if I jump in here. The teacher in me couldn't sit still any longer. C, first thing to do is look on you nic bottle and it will tell you the strength. I would think it is either 53mg or 72mg. It may be a little sticker that says PG 52 or 72mg (it can also 36, 100,or 150mg) What ever it is, put that number at the top where it says "Nicotine Strength e-Juice" and unless you purchased something special, it will be in PG dilutent, so put 100% in the PG space on that line. This is important, because the program considers this amount of PG when calculating total PG. I'll talk about TPG later. Next line on the calculator is "Target Nicotine Strength". This is the amount of nicotine you want in your finished juice. An analog cig is about 36%. You said you were looking for 18% (eg., 1.8mg). That is the number that goes in the box to the far right (i.e.,18). The next line is the amount of juice you are making (what ja wnta put in the bottle). You can make any amount you would like, however I suggest you start out with a 5ml batch. The last item in the header is for those using separate dilutents like water, Everclear, vodka,etc. Leave that blank. That finishes the header portion. The next section is easy. in the flavor number boxes, type the names of the concentrate(s) in your recipe. Again, unless you have ordered specal flavors concentrates, they are in 100% PG and you don't need to do anything with the next group. If you are using all VG or a blend you would adjust it here. Moving right along to the % of flavor. If you have a recipe, enter those numbers here (for each flavor). If your recipe is in ml's, the simplest thing to do is put a number from 1 to 12 in the flavor # % block, click the Calculate button at the bottom right of the form and check the amount in the "ml" column below. Adjust the % entry until you get the correct ml amount. (Remember to hit the CALCULATE button each time you change something) If you don't have a recipe, smell each of the flavors you intend to use and remember which is the primary flavor and about how potent each is according to their smell. This is not foolproof, but, it's a start. Your primary flavor wants to ave the highest % and decrease the others by the roll they play in the final flavor. Lets look at an example. I'll use my DIY Cool Blackberry Cream: Blackberry 25% or 1.25ml Sweet Cream 15% or 0.75ml koolada 10% or 0.5ml Menthol Ice 5% or 0.25ml Sweetener 5% or 0.25mlThe first thing most will note is how heavy I flavor. 60% of this recipe is flavor concentrate. It is said, if you have to much flavor concentrate the flavor can go wrong. That is what I was testing with this mix. It came out very nice. However, we will wait and see after it steeps for 3 weeks. Back to the job at hand. The 3rd column in this group is the DROPS column. Please don;t get caught up in the easy way out and use this column. First and foremost, all of the drip caps and eye droppers will give different siz drops and you will end up wonder why the last batch was so good and this one is off. Different dropper and/or pressure. Now that you have your juice you will want to try it. It is NOT ready to try. But, Put a bowl or cup of water in the microwave and bring it to a boil. Shake your bottle of juice vigorously and place it in the hot water' Every 4 to 5 minutes, take the bottle out of the water and shake it well before returning it to the hot water. Do this until the water has cooled. NOW you can try it. It will still change over the next few days or weeks, but at least you will get an idea of what it is going to be. Hope this helps and again, sorry for jumping in BT.
Thanks for your reply. The Nicotine I have is 18ml PG/VG 50/50. Like our friend said, you can't use 18ml Nicotine and hit 18ml at Target. I always vape on 18ml strength so I ordered my Nic at 18ml (That's the problem). I have placed an order on 60ml; that will definitely work on that awesome calculator.Thanks again and have a great weekend,Sean
You can still use the bottle of 18mg by mixing it with Unflavored Nic at a higher strength. See the Nic Combine tool in the Tool menu of the calc.Don't mix it all. Make a 30ml bottle. If you are buying 36mg, add 20ml and add 10ml of 18mg. Your result will be 30mg.In the calc put 30mg in the box Nic Strength and 18mg for the target. You will be using the Nic from the mix you made.See attached image............
This is my all day calculator....top job Breakthru.
