Yay me - mixed by weight!

I was eager to try my new fruit flavors and took the opportunity to mix by weight for the first time.

Being the procrastinator that I am, it took me almost a year to get what I needed for mixing by weight. Accuracy was a little bit off, but will get better with more practice. More importantly, I don’t have 16 syringes to clean after mixing! I did make a heck of a mess with the VG though. Maybe sometime in the next year I’ll get some squeeze bottles for the PG and VG.

Made four mixes with my new fruit flavors:
Key Lime Pie ; Bombies 'nana cream ; Mikes Melons (Cuttwood Monster Melon Clone) ; and Hazelnut Vanilla Custard

So far I have only tried the Cuttwood Monster Melon Clone…already made a second batch.

Now, what to do with these 200 syringes I don’t need anymore…


Grats! I just mixed up some Bombie’s nana cream as well. Save the syringes in case your scale goes kaput. :slight_smile:

get about 10 of these, they are washable and reusable and come in handy for transfer into the mix on the scale.

Yay You !!!

How was your accuracy off? Human error or scale error?

My scale arrives Monday… Trying to mentally prepare myself.

I buy those in a bag of 100 from amazon they work great

Mostly human error. I would get close to the target weight and try to squeeze out one drop and getting two. Measurements weren’t too far off though, not enough to ruin a mix.

:smile:… pretty sure I can see your house at the bottom of this photo.


@Steve-o_54 @CosmicTruth Those Pipettes are great for PG based liquids, they work with VG but it can be a slow process waiting for the liquid to be sucked in, obviously that depends on the size of the pipette, mine are 1ml but I draw the liquid in to the bulb


my advice is… take your time every time I rush a mix I over pour especially the PG
give your scale a chance to catch up as you’re dripping in the ingredients and also
calibrate your scale not every time but after a few mixing sessions


And if you are close to the weight you are measuring, give the scales a gentle blow - you may find you’re actually at the correct weight - sensitive creatures these scales :laughing::+1:


Nice Tip Lolly. I have the “really close” problem a lot :flushed:, and usually end up going over. THEN I gotta try to somehow suck 2 drops out of the mix :laughing:


lol I did that yesterday!:laughing:


Maybe we should start a club Steve-o.
We’ll call it the Two Drop Over club :joy:

LMAO yeah I like that Sax I call my mixing room theTwo Drop Inn
