Mixing your own e-liquid not only can be quite fun but it can also save you money and allow you to completely control your own flavour and nicotine levels.
We have designed this kit to have a good range of items that will be handy when measuring and mixing your own e-liquids.
Being able to measure liquids down to 0.2ml accurately is easy with the graduated cylinder.
All you need to do is add the nicotine base (if you need it).
This kit comes with enough liquid to make up around 290ml!!
e-Liquids are ready to be vaped, so are a good benchmark to guage your own creations on. If you choose to have them as doublers, you will need to dilute them 1:1 with your own nic base or suitable mix of PG and/or VG.
Concentrates are the base flavours used to flavour e-Liquid, these are very high strength, professional level flavours, some can be very strong, all require dilution before use.
When used in e-Liquids, use at up to 20% by total final volume, some are much stronger and may only require 1% for full flavour, where possible we try and indicate these. Cinnamon Redhots, Star Anise, Tiramisu, M-type Premium to name a few that are very strong.
Graduated Cylinders allow clear and precise measurement of small liquid volumes.
Making up small batches of 10ml or less at first is ideal, as not all creations will be keepers, this also keeps the cost of mistakes down to a few cents. 10ml is also a good size as 10 is an easy number to work with.
The Borosilicate Glass cylinders are prefered for accuracy, and are better to work with, downside is they are much more expensive and could break if knocked over or dropped.
A Syringe and blunt needle is also supplied, this allows for even finer measurement when required.
Empty dripper bottles
Empty dripper bottles are great for storing your newly created brews and batches in.
The caps on the bottles are child resistant and the bottles are fitted with a dripper nozzle, allowing for accurate controlled flow or by the single drop. Always keep your associated liquids out of reach of children, and ideally store in a cool place out of direct sunlight.
PG or Propylene Glycol
PG or Propylene Glycol is the main ingredient in most e-Liquids, making up to about 80% by volume.
Most flavour concentrates are PG based also, so count these as a PG value, PG is commonly used as a flavour carrier in the food industry. PG provides flavour transport, and throat hit to a degree.
VG or Vegetable Glycerine
VG or Vegetable Glycerine is what makes most of the vapour and can help smooth harsh characteristics.
Too much VG will mute throat hit and flavour and could lead to rewicking issues as VG is very thick. VG has around the same perceived sweetness as table sugar.
To make 10ml nicotine free batch: Using known good ratios
In the graduated cylinder combine 2ml of VG + 6ml of PG + up to 2ml of your chosen concentrate flavouring(s)
Pour into an empty 10ml dripper bottle (take dripper cap off first), replace dripper cap and main cap, shake well for 30 seconds.
Use in your favourite e-cig device, this will give you a fairly reasonable first impression of your creation, leaving to sit for a day or two will allow the flavours to properly combine, meld and settle, this may take weeks in some cases.
If you do make something you do not like initially, put it aside, label it and come back and try it again after sometime.
Tip: When experimenting, consider not adding your own nicotine base until you have a flavour you like, this will help keep costs down and save a bit of complication.
If you use nicotine normally, keep a spare vape handy with your regular brew while experimenting. Once you have a masterpiece, then adapt the recipe to include your own nicotine base.
