    Yup Vape Away! If it is a simple flavor than steeping won't be that big of a deal. More complex creations do take some time to reach their full potential. But they too can be hit right after mixing. Have fun

    I know flavors need to steep. I was asking about the plain PG/VG mix.

    Thanks. I didn't know if the PG needed to meld with the VG for a certain time before adding flavor and NIC.

    Just insure that it is WELL MIXED so that the blend is consistent. The VG has a tenancy to settle due to its viscosity.
    If I'm awake, I vape!
    No 'bakky' since Apr 14, 2011, after 45 years of 2 PaD <insert Snoopy dance here>

    That is what I wanted to know. I shook the Dickens out of it and then let it sit awhile and repeated before I started to mix with flavor and NIC. I hope I got it mixed well enough. D I need to mix before each use or will it stay mixed for a certain amount of time? There was no water added. Just 80%PG and 20%VG.

    I make my base in 500 ml batches. Shake the snot out of it and once combined I have never seen it separate. I just checked a 200 ml bottle of base that has sat for at least one month (undisturbed) and I would classify it as a homogeneous solution (same uniform appearance throughout). hope that helps

    Does the base contain NIC or just your PG/VG mix?

    Base contains nic at 13mg/ml. 100 mg/ml nic in 100% Pg so 13 mls nic, 67 mls Pg, 20 mls Vg per 100 ml batch.

    I have 4+ liters of nic (all in PG). Some in the freezer and some in the mini fridge. Some nic is approaching the 2 year mark and is still crystal clear and fully mixed if you are also wondering about nic base .
