    Default Best DIY coffee e-liquid ever!

    I took half a cup of decaf coffee grounds, one vanilla bean and a cup of PG and let it soak in for 2 days top with plastic wrap and ziplock bag in the fridge. Then i strained out the the pg from the coffee and out came the most realistic coffee e- juice that i have ever tasted!!! I added a few drops of loranns caramel to it and wow.

    You almost have to use cheesecloth considering the viscosity of the PG...I would.

    I started a tincture today using a Senseo Dark Roast single cup coffee "teabag"...1 coffee bag wetted with vodka and then drained in 1oz of VG brought to temp (about 15-ish secs in the microwave). Within an hour, the VG was the color of strong coffee. It WILL have to be strained, though, as you can see the solids suspended in the liquid.

    I do have a concern or two about vaping this, though, as what's being extracted is basically an oil. Any thoughts?

    Cheesecloth is too coarse a weave. You really want something coarser than a coffee filter, but tighter than cheesecloth. PTB would be great, though the size would be a problem. Filtering with a French Press might be good.

    Having done similar things many times, I've found that it's way better to filter out the fine stuff first, when the coffee is dry. Then soak. Then filter the grounds/PG mixture. You'll get far less coffee grounds in the final product.

    I also wouldn't refrigerate - you're just slowing the infusion process by a significant amount. (Granted, two days isn't that much time to wait. I've done 3-month infusions...)

    I used a drip plastic gold mesh coffee filter and put in an extra fabric filter, it works well got all the coffee grounds and vanilla bean out. the pg isnt black like loranns just a medium dark brown. i just put that over a cup and let it drip on its own while went to play call of duty mw2.

    Ah, but the good thing about cheesecloth is that you can simply add additional layers until you find the sweet spot...I've used cheesecloth to strain everything from hot homemade syrup to yogurt (for yogurt cheese).

    So from this recipe it sounds like a 2:1 Pg:coffee ratio is about the right mix?
