    Default how to mix veggie glycerin and flavors?

    Please note this is a very old thread and virtually all the information in it is wrong.

    Okay I got the veggie glycerin (thanks Cash -- got it at VitaminShoppe!) and flavoring without PG (cook's or wilton's brand in Ben Franklin store).

    Now what do I do? I have all these cartridges, all with PG that I can't vape, some with zero nic and some with low or med nic. I have mini cartridges and pen styles. The pen carts are much easier to deal with.

    The veggie glycerin is very thick! Am I supposed to dilute that with water or just a LOT of the flavor liquid or a little of both?

    I've already figured to rinse out and dry the carts before refilling (thanks for that tip Karen!).

    Just not real sure what and how much to mix to refill carts. I realize these will be zero nic carts and that's okay.

    Sorry for all the questions. I haven't used my ecigs for a while and can't wait to get them going again!!

    Thanks much!!

    start with 50/50, then go up/down after that.

    will you also be adding cooked tobacco liquid?

    No I won't be adding anything else.

    Oh I found some of those little sweet breath dropper bottles too. Going to fill those up with half vg and half flavor later today and see how it goes

    Thanks!

    it might not be that easy to mix ... VG is very sticky, and tends to stay together. I normally drip about 5 drops of VG in a small bowl (egg holder) and 5 drops of flavoring. Mix with the tip of the eye dropper for about a good minute or two, or until the contents look completely meshed, then suck up into the eye dropper and either drip a couple drops directly onto the atomizer or fill up the cartridge.

    let me know who it goes

    oh yuck! Not good at this at all Mixed up vg and flavor and filled a cart and the atomizer crackled and popped and the taste was awful. Have never had problems with atomizers doing that before.



    Will try again later. Too frustrated right now.

    lolololol .... it does take some practice. try 25% VG and 75% flavoring. VG likes to "take over" other flavors and mask them quite quickly.

    VP, what's in the flavourings you are using? Is there any alcohol - that might make the atomiser react differently.

    You need flavouring WITH PG.

    Those without PG use oil or alcohol as a solubiliser - the first one is bad for your atomiser and for your lungs and the second one dilutes the solution too much.

    If you get pure, undiluted extract (which I doubt) you'll need PG to dilute it, or PG to dilute the glycerine solution, then add something like 1 drop for 10 ml or more of the solution.

    no you don't ... TB has used flavoring without PG and has been successful. its the breakdown as to what matters. I will wait for him to chime in here ...

    VP is using VG because he is allergic to PG... thus the reason for flavoring without PG.

    EDIT:
    Cross Post from VP's other thread. This is where TB mentions Cook's Vanilla.

    Ooops, sorry. I remember now I read that thread but my memory seems not what it used to be...

    I will try to make it up soon with a too long message about the way you can calculate the nicotine content in home cooked juice... I'm still writing it... started last night
