Downloadable E-Juice Recipe Software App
Being the dork that I am, I've developed a software application for creating and storing e-juice recipes. It's nothing fancy, just something I put together in my spare time. It will make amount calculations based on what percentage of each ingredient you want in your recipe. You can use 2 nicotine liquids and up to 3 flavorings currently (I may open it up and make it more flexible in the future.. but this is a 1.0 product haha). It will also print out the recipe and you can give it your own color scheme if you so choose.
I got frustrated with all the excel spread sheets (although they are very good..scubabatdan's ejucie calculator is legendary) floating around because I don't have excel installed at home and open office only works SOMETIMES for me. This application doesn't require anything except the Windows operating system and it's a pretty small app. Sorry Mac users, it's unlikely it will work for you, but you can try it if you have windows emulation of some sort. Below are some screen shots of the interface. I tried to keep it simple and relatively self explanatory but there's a help menu with basic instructions if you need it. It's geared more toward the person that's just getting into DIY mixing or someone that want's to keep track of bunches of recipes vs. some hard core mixing operation using a large number of ingredients.
I've tested this on XP and Vista and it's working great, but from my experience as a developer, you tend to look for certain things and the programmer doesn't necessarily make the best tester, so PLEASE let me know if you have any issues with the installation or use. My thanks goes to olderthandirt and MickiO for testing this application for me and providing some feedback. If you download (or have downloaded) this app, I would appreciate any feedback you give me (good or bad) in this thread or through PM.
Anyway, if anyone is interested, it is downloadable from this link:

Here are some screenshots so you know what it looks like and if it meets your needs.

Preferences form that allows you to set some defaults and change your color scheme:
This shows what the printed recipe looks like (maybe next time I can spell Strawberry correctly haha):

That is so great...I'm in. Thanks for the contribution!

Is there a way to save recipes in some format that is easy to share? We could start building a huge recipe book over here with that: The ECF E-liquid Gourmet book.
Hi Mist, currently you could share the recipe files with someone else that has the same program (they have a .rcp extension and are located in the directory where you installed the application unless you changed their location through the "Preferences" menu), but you've touched on a good idea. I may put in an option to save as a more readable text file. I was lazy and made the recipes files more convenient for me to read them in to the program vs. share with others hahah I will post in this thread if I make any updates. Thanks for the idea!

Just a question or rather statement to sharing here... We could also just post a recipe we have made using this program when it has come out favorable...
Posting it in exact measurements calculated to what you used... and maybe an alternate version for those who use a PG/VG mix, for those who don't use alcohol, etc...
Would that be too difficult?
I do not DIY yet but will be ordering our kit this month... This seems like a great way to make a test batch too and get it to be the same amount of each ingredient whether you are making up 10 ml or 2 ml... I need to Dl the program and see- I am assuming you left values open for as small a batch needed or as large a batch...
Thx for sharing this!
Heeey! I got it! Saved it to my desktop! Okay, and I know I should seek another thread now or start a new one...
What is the normal ratio of nic liquid to PG/Vg to flavoring??
I mean putting in these values is great but if I make a mix w/ way too much VG/PG it will be... well bad! Right?? Is there a rule of thumb somewhere to go by??
