Well, what is the final ratio you’re looking for? I assume 70/30 since you bought it that way (is that 70VG 30PG?). Truth is, you won’t see true 70/30 this way because most concentrates are made with PG. And, your nic will count towards the final ratio as well. Did you buy it in PG or VG? And what mg strength did you buy?

I bought my nic in PG 3MG

Ah, so your nic strength is already diluted to 3mg. Well, that is going to add a lot of PG since more of your volume will be used by the 3mg nic. A lot us us buy in higher mg strengths (I use 100mg) and dilute it at mix time, to minimize the affect of the nic on the ratio.

Nonetheless, your final ratio will not be the 70/30, but that doesn’t mean you’ve screwed up, unless you simply demand 70/30. In that case, the only thing you can do is buy separate VG and PG and get your ratio as close as possible.

NO I DON’T DEMAND 70/30 I’ve vaped juice at 60/40 and liked it I’m more about flavor than clouds.

My nic is also PG based. It is the strength I am referring to.

No need to shout :rofl:, I was just saying that you haven’t really technically ‘screwed up’ unless you really needed the final ratio to be 70/30.

Welcome aboard!

Amen, and amen there my friend. The good part is like you said, you will still have vapeable results so your money was not wasted. And coming here was a great idea too, because I’ve learned a lot about DIY mixing here by reading and asking questions that has definitely helped me avoid issues I would have had to learn myself the hard way.

I’m about 5 years in myself, and still learn plenty. This mixing stuff is a lot more complicated than building coils and understanding Ohm’s Law.

That’s Great! I’ve been vaping 5 yrs. I’m making my own coils vaping a rta. Just started making my own juice with premix with nic already added about 3 months ago.

Yeah, I thought the coil building was going to be the Field of Mastery I needed to achieve to be an ‘advanced vaper’. Well, after I’d built all the fancy jewelry, and could make any coil for any situation with ease, I felt totally confident I could handle this “simple” little thing called DIY mixing. I just dived right in, cape, tights, and all. And quickly made a whole lot of ugly, sub-par juice that was more suited for drain cleaning than vaping. Talk about a hit to my pride! But I’ve learned a lot and have now gotten to the point of having a lot of ADV recipes ready to vape.

I made the same mistake when i started and bought 12mg nic expecting to make 12mg juice :man_facepalming: You can use it up for testers n whatnot tho but unless using all vg flavoring, u are going to be about a 50/50 mix even at 1mg. Click the max vg box and add your 70/30 base instead of what it vg it says to add.


this is what u’d actually get after tinkerin’ w/ the calculator using 10%pg flavoring as an example:

Gl to u!
