are you diluting vg?
2a) what’s your preferable way to dilute it?
2b) how much you dilute it ? %?
if you 're diluting it, what’s the reason made you do it?
personally i don’t dilute my juices at all with DW or anything else… just straight 70/30 or 80/20 VG/PG, and just letting them steep… i use pharmaceutical VG and PG (USP/EP), i would like to know how more experienced mixers do it
Some people just add a certain % of DW depending on the affect they want to achieve for a certain recipe. The best info I’ve seen from someone who does this as a base is from @Maureeenie. She’s made a topic about her process.
though as far i understood this is just about max VG juices… still i have been told that other mixers dilute even their juices that contain pg… i just can’t understand why dilute even further a 70/30 or a 80/20 juice with DW or Alcohol or anything else… DW or Alcohol are diluting like 4X times vg more than pg… 10% DW for example plus the flavors will make a juice that is like 30/70 Vg/pg. and this is where i am losing the whole thing…
except people that can’t vape PG, or their wick can’t drain the juice is there any other reason that i can’t figure out?
I believe Maureeenie uses 5%, not 10. You asked for input from experienced mixers but I am only starting to get involved with using distilled water. Some say it adds a smoother texture, some say it add moisture, some would like a thinner liquid without using more PG. The reasons vary widely but I’m sure if you enter Distilled Water into the search function you can find all of the reasons and methods.
I use 94% VG, 5% Distilled Water and 1% Expensive Vodka as my max VG base.
What I will tell you is that it cost a $2.00 airline bottle of vodka and a $1.00 Bottle of Purified Water to see if you like the way it mixes with your recipes. If you don’t like it, you lost $3.00 and I’ve lost a heck of a lot more money buying flavorings that were kind of yucky to me lol
