I have always used a PG base with my nic. Early on, I remember reading in other forums where nic in VG bases had a slight pinkish hue and those in PG had a golden hue (and vice versa!) when exposed to oxygen.
My thoughts are… the nic is probably just fine. I wouldn’t be that concerned with the color just yet. Heck, I have +/- year and a half old nic (freezer stored) that’s a deep golden color; it still titrates out to 100mg/ml with no problem and has no off taste at 6 to 9mg/ml in my mixes (VapersTek/Chemnovatic nicotine).
Please do! I know we all WANT to trust the folks who sell us our product… however, everyone can have a bad day at work and screw the pooch; it can happen to anyone… including at companies that package/bottle our flavors and nicotine. There have been a number of Reddit shit storms in the past over this issue!
Protect yourself and get a titration kit… test your nic for accuracy… peace of mind is a good thing.
I can tell you for a fact… people have received nicotine from certain vendors which titrated out close to 180mg/ml, when the concentration was supposed to be 100mg/ml. It’s happened before and will probably happen again.
