Daily Mix Tip: The total flavoring | DIY E-Liquid Blog – E-Juice Makers


Daily Mix Tip: The total flavoring used in a recipe is less important that the amounts of each individual flavoring. If you have to use 10% of a weak flavoring, and you are using 3 weak flavorings, you may end up with a recipe that is 30% flavoring total. Is this bad? Not really. Since weaker flavors tend to be higher in their carrier base liquid than molecules, you are actually getting far less flavoring molecules with 30% “flavoring” of weaker flavors than you would of 5% of ultra concentrated flavoring. Focus more on how you use each individual flavoring in the recipe and less about how much total flavoring you are using. You want to get to know each flavoring well and at what percentages you like it. Because with DIY it is all about what YOU want.

Daily Mix Tip: Colored e-liquid? | DIY E-Liquid Blog – E-Juice Makers


Daily Mix Tip: Are you wondering how to get colored e-liquid? Most of the time if you ask this question in a group you are going to get a resounding NO DON’T DO IT!!! Most mixers are profoundly against putting extra ingredients that may potentially have harmful effects, the reason why most say No to food coloring. However, that is not helpful for the folks who may not be worried about safety at that level and may want to color their liquids anyway.

If you want to color your liquids, my suggestion is to stay away from artificial colors as they pose the most potential for safety risk. Nature’s Flavors does carry natural food colorings, they aren’t quite as vibrant as artificial colors, but they will color your liquids. Being natural there may be less cancer risks as those are worries with artificial colors just in eating them, imagine what they could do to your lungs! So if you want to dye your eliquids a color, Go Natural.

Daily Mix Tip: The Shelf Life | DIY E-Liquid Blog – E-Juice Makers


Daily Mix Tip: The shelf life of your DIY e-liquid will depend on your storage. Most e-liquid needs a month or two to fully steep. From there once it has steeped its flavor stabilizes for a few months, with minimal change noticed. Between 6 months and 1 year after mixing your e-liquids will begin to decline in flavor profile taste, though it is still fully vapable. After 1 year your flavoring can become more compromised, fading or becoming a bit muddled. Eventually, if nicotine is present the nicotine will also age turning your liquid very dark depending on the strength of the nicotine. During the second year e-liquid will likely become nearly unvapable if you have added nicotine, if it is not nicotined then you may still be able to vape the liquid during year 2 but some flavorings may be muted or begin to taste off.

For the sake of freshness and taste most e-liquids should be vaped within 18 months of mixing. Add your Born on Date to your bottle labels so you know when you mixed it.

Daily Mix Tip: Storing DIY E-Liquid & Vape Juice


Daily Mix Tip: It is best to store your mixed e-liquid in glass or PET plastic bottles. LDPE and HDPE are fine bottles to use for daily use, but for making large batches of your flavorite recipes store the large quantity in glass or PET and transfer into your smaller bottles as you need it. Storing in LDPE can leave your juice vulnerable to air exposure as these bottles do breath and allow for flavors to soak into the plastic and absorb aromas from the environment as well which can cause off flavors.

If you are looking to pick up some PET bottles or Glass check out Wizard Labs http://ow.ly/5RAR30dFlgZ

Daily Mix Tip: Forget about speed steeping. | DIY E-Liquid Blog – E-Juice Makers


Daily Mix Tip: Forget about speed steeping. In an endless pursuit to figure out how to make e-liquid mixed and immediately vapeable like it would taste 3 weeks to 2 months from now, not one single method I’ve tested resulted in a liquid that was adequately steeped. There may be methods that the commercial big boys are using that create an almost steeped version to finish steeping on the shelves and remains stable enough for long enough to be sold and vaped, but most of those methods are well outside the financial reach or space of most at home mixers. Magnetic stirrers, ultrasonic water baths with/out heat, vortex mixers, microwaving, seed steeping, or any of the supposed advanced methods do vary little to reduce the amount of time steeping that most recipes will need. Create a few recipes with flavors you enjoy vaping fresh and as they steep so that you have a few shake and vape recipes to use while your other recipes get a good hand-shaking and are stored away in a dark cool place for 1-6 weeks. Save your money, buy more flavors! http://ow.ly/CQU530cJp3C

Daily Mix Tip: If you’re looking for an exact 1 to 1 clone | DIY E-Liquid Blog – E-Juice Makers


Daily Mix Tip: If you’re looking for an exact 1 to 1 clone of your favorite commercial e-liquid, get that thought out of your mind. Figuring out the exact recipe is generally not going to happen, not because the flavorings are hard to get, but because figuring out the exact percentages and combination is usually damn near impossible for most average palates. To create a Remix of your favorite flavor will require identifying the flavor profile as best you can, write it down, then purchase flavorings you think it might be to test (if you don’t have them on hand.) You can also search through the recipe sites or ask around the groups if anyone has any recipes that resemble that profile, this can help you gather a shopping list. No it is not cheap to recreate a commercial juice, because there are a lot of brands out there, so prepare for buying the same flavor across multiple brands in order to figure out which one it may be.

While you are looking to create your favorite commercial e-liquid, don’t forget to continue to try out or create new flavor profiles you may in turn love even more than your favorite commercial brand. You’ll always have something to vape as long as you keep mixing. http://ow.ly/vQdK30cKsHi

Daily Mix Tip: Bored with the flavors you vape every day? Next time you order so…


Daily Mix Tip: Bored with the flavors you vape every day? Next time you order some flavors try picking up a few flavors far outside your normal profile that you vape to death. If you go bakeries, try some sweeter tobaccos or a fruit that maybe you’ve never even eaten. If you vape tobaccos like I do all day, try a cinnamon roll, or a cake, or a custard. If you’re a candy vaper go for a bakery or a sweet tobacco. Or if you’re really brave, go for cucumber or a stout tobacco mixed with a sweet fruit. Just picking up 3 or 4 extra flavors outside of your normal flavor profile can add some seriously needed variety in your vaping routine and will help you keep from getting bored with mixing and vaping.

Daily Mix Tip: Are you not big on writing down notes on single flavor testers or recipes you’ve mixed? Try recording a quick voice note on your phone, just be sure to title it the recipe or the single flavor that you’re testing and save it to your computer once a month. You can go back and listen to them when you need to refresh your memory. You can even use programs to transcribe your notes for you if you really wanted them in writing!
