My first mixes! + a question


#1

I had a blast making these mixes. I started off using the one shots for Bronuts, and Funfetti OG, and then I used some high rated basic recipes: Strawberry Fog, Bombies 'nana Cream, Geography, and Green Goblin. Very excited!!! I do have a question, so I mixed quite a bottles, should I have an expectation date in them or how do I know when thy go bad?


#2

Just keep them out of extreme heat and sunlight and they should last for a good long time. Chances are you’ll vape them long before they would go bad. I’ve had juices sit for 6 months + and they were still fine. I just recommend putting the “made on” date so that you know how old it is.


#3

Oh! And congrats on your first mixes! So exciting!! :grinning:


#4

Nice job! – I also put the created date. I figure they are good for 6 months to a year, but they don’t last that long.

Welcome to the party. Most juices that I make dont last more than a month or two. I found that switching to DIY allowed me to get in to crazy builds that really eat a lot of juice without worrying about cost.

With that said, I do have a few long steep juices that I make and don’t even touch them for six months. I vape them for 3-4 months before they are gone and I’ve never had an issue.

What beautiful writing you have! :heart_eyes:

Ditto what the others have said and congrats on the mixing sesh :grin:


#7

Thank you!!!

Welcome to the Rabbit Hole! In addition to the date, I also like to write the nicotine strength and VG/PG ratio on my mixes. Of course, if you’re only mixing at one strength and one ratio then you’re golden and don’t need superfluous info cluttering up that beautiful script. Enjoy!

I do the same thing! I switch pg/vg levels depending on what I have on hand that day. And now I am starting to lower some of my nicotine levels (Yay!) So, I like to know what I made, if it’s perfect and want it the same, or if it needs to be changed. Also, if the recipe calls for a specific steep time, I usually try to add that as well, if it fits. I bought amazing, inexpensive labels on Amazon for essential oil bottles that work so well, fit a 10ml bottle and up, and they are waterproof. They work really well for bottles that you reuse all the time with the same recipe, because they hold up.

Got a link? :grin:

Girl, you know I do. I love Amazon Prime!! Actually, I cut the rectangles and ovals in half for 10ml or 3rds for 5ml. But, I will have enough for a long time!


#12

Omg. Those are soooo cute?!! I might get those for my blue glass bottles. Do they peel off okay?


#13

Thank you! They look so nice on blue. brown and clear glass bottles! Because they are waterproof, they need a soapy bath, some goo gone for sticky residue and then alcohol to remove the goo gone. Or, a fingernail or plastic scraper can do it. I wish I had nicer handwriting though! Maybe I will make a template and start printing them. If I do, I will share! :blush:

Need some more help:
I am using nic from ecigexpress. I bought the 36mg. When I made my mixes, I followed the calculator very closely, measuring my nic first in my bottle. It was clear each time I used it. I was mixing for 3mg which is what I buy from the premium e liquids. I’ve been getting a super harsh throat feeling that I’ve never got before. Im mixing 70%vg. All my bottles are stored in the dark and in the cool. I’ve kept my nic in the refrigerator.

thoughts? I don’t want to throw away all my juice. :sob::sob::sob:


#15

Did you shake the living bejesus out of the Nic bottle before using?

And did you bring the Nic to room temp before shaking the living bejesus out of it?


#16

thats the first thing i noticed , my hand writing is so bad sometimes i cant read it so i always notice nice writing


#17

i never knew this , see you do learn something knew everyday


#18

I shook it up reallllllly well, but I didn’t bring it to room temp before mixing. :expressionless:


#19

I think it has to be that then. I remembered I mixed my very first bottle without nic, and that isn’t giving my any harshness.

Is there a way to fix the juices I’ve already made?


#20

Is your Nic base PG or VG?
