All I would have to do is mount the fans to the top and install a 4 fan controller in the drive bay and jump the power supply to fool it that there is a motherboard. I'm thinking there has to be a way to take a few of the $5 candle warmers and incorporate those into the lid. What's your take on stir plates with/without heat. Does heat change the game for stir plates, or would UC still be the way to go?

    Many have used stir plates with great success and a heated stir plate is even better. The key there is maintaining a temperature of 150F.

    Id like it to do larger batches so that I could mix my flavors and then steep them all at the same time.

    Help, please. Anyone who knows is welcome to chime in, of course.

    Appreciate it,

    If my mix requires thinning I use saline.

    If the final strength you want to vape is 3mg then you can add the flavoring directly to the Nicotine base. There would be no need to add any additional VG. Adding flavoring will dilute the Nicotine further depending on how much flavoring you add.

    Danny! I've read various blogs that you wrote, and you're very knowledgeable. Wondering if you can help me out.

    I bought a few flavors, and "3mg Unflavored Nicotine Base" with Max VG from ECigExpress (3mg Unflavored Nicotine Base - ecigExpress).

    My question is, can I just add the flavor to unflavored nic base or do I need to get pure VG to mix with?

    Ok, I quit smoking from vaping. Then I went zero nicotine two weeks later and started having severe bouts of exhaustion. I googled this and it said it was from nicotine withdrawals and the symptoms could last up to six months. I started using mild amounts of nicotine again and the bouts of exhaustion stopped immediatly.
    If I wasnt getting nicotine from smoking then why the withdrawals from nicotine when I used zero nicotine ejuice?

    Awesome
    Trial and error uber fun but when experience offers a diamond oh yeah
    Thanks for the rescue in my microwave post lol

    Patience has me impatient since I just ordered a bunch of capella flavors and every post I read says a steep is a must.. That had me thinking of speeding up and now I see no other way around siding with from seeding. Unfortunately all new flavors..

    Bookmarked,
    Thanks for putting this together. I've been vaping for almost a year now. RY4s are where I think my tastes are right now. I'm getting ready to start mixing my own liquid. This has been a valuable walk through to get me started on my first RY4.

    This was actually written before I started to use saline. Saline would speak to the concentration of the base so anything above 65vg/35pg I add saline or DW. Below that I don't add it. I've recently went back to 50/50 and lowered my NIC to 12mg and now don't use it. It's an individual personal preference more then anything.

    This is for an ry4 but the principles taught here pertain to most any flavor and the percentage suggested here is just a starting point. I'm not trying to mix you an RY4 per say (Although this is a valid recipe) this is just an example of mixing in general and how I approach any mix. With that said the base can be what ever your used to vaping. You can use a high VG base a high PG base or a 50/50 combo in what ever NIC strength you desire. Needing more flavoring for high VG mixes then you would normally need for high PG mixes is simply not true. The only thing to be aware of is with a higher VG base flavor takes longer to mix and meld through the base liquid and may require more steep time. Heating VG will help mix and distribute the flavoring within the base.
