I’m trying to figure out the minimum to get started. Glass bottles are a bit pricey, and I think you need plastic squeeze bottles for mixing? Not sure of what sizes to get other than 30 Ml for storing recipes.
Text book case of red pill syndrome. I recommend at least one hour of forum reading per day and to keep the hands off the “sort by rating” button. It can be a big help sometimes but for a newbie it can give one the wrong idea.
Welcome to the dark side!
Hey, you’re a Bad Influence! (ha ha, kidding, cool name!) I took the red pill years ago. It took me about 40 hours reading on ELR just to get some basics down. Great tip “beware the rating button”, just trying a few 2-3 Flavor recipes and hope I get something tolerable. Yep, I’m jumping in feet first, ready or not. Thanks.
Looks good. The big thing I’d recommend is to go with the 10-15ml sizes for your flavor concentrates on the first go-round. Up them in size when they run out based on how much you like them and how much you’ll really use them.
You may also need a cookie or biscuit type flavor to play with, but even that can wait until you get used to mixing and feel the need. Welcome to the wonderful world of DIY! Don’t let a bad mix get you down! Mistakes are the best lessons
You’d be surprised how fast you can go through a gallon, especially when your furst starting and might end up dumping a few mixes. BUT you’ll most likely be placing another order (or 10) in the near future so you could always get more then.
I don’t know if you’d think this a good idea or not, but I added a couple concentrates that are good as a standalone, in case I royally hosed up my percentages of mixing. Like, red licorice, rainbow drops, stuff like that. That way I knew I could at least have something vapeable no matter how strong the suck was with my own concoctions.
Plunderdrum, thanks! I was wondering about getting the smaller Flavor sizes, but I’m unsure how much of a bottle would go in 30 Ml recipes. For example, do you have a rough guess how many 30 Ml. recipes you could make for each 10 - 15 Ml. bottle of concentrate? I mean is that usually enough to make several 30 Ml. bottles with?
Not sure i get this one, maybe I don’t understand the comment as it was intended.
If you buy a pg nic base diluted to 6mg, and want 6mg in the finished product, you can’t add any flavoring, esp not 10-12% flavoring. You’d have less than 6mg/ml nic strength in the end.
The calculator works great for telling you how much 100mg nic to add to get the desired result. Forgive me if I misunderstood.
A lot of creams, but strawberry as your only fruit flavour?!?
If I were you I would buy 3-4 different fruit flavours, though I am of course very much a fruit vaper
Still I predict you will soon get tired of strawberry, and most fruits will go well with all your creams. I recommend that you pick some of your favourite fruits, and then check the flavour DB for the highest rated brands of those flavours. You can always later find recipes for them, or simply replace one fruit with another.
I would also recommend that you start with 10ml bottles instead of 30ml. 10ml actually last longer than you would think, and it gives you a chance to test them out and learn which you actually like or not, without having to pour too much into the sink.
Well, each recipe is different, and bottle sizes obviously also matter. But in your case, 10% of a finished 30ml bottle will be 3ml of that flavor so your 30ml concentrate nets you 10 bottles of vape juice. 5% would net you 20 bottles, and on and on. All the maths!!!
