    Default E Juice too thick...

    I use my ejuice in carts and have found some liquids are too thick and don't work, in some cases, at all. I feel like if I cut it with something to thin it out it might work (ie: Caramel Kicker,AVE, is the worst so far) What are ya'll using to cut the juice with that may be around the house or something that doesn't have to be ordered through online suppliers?

    Also, is there a cure to cut flavors that are to sweet?

    add pg to it. it's cheap to buy at most vendor's site. this will lessen the flavor but it will thin it. If you're using cartomizers, i suggest a syringe. then the vg is inserted right at the bottom and works great rather than dripped in

    Try making a sample 5 ml batch and add a few drops of Vodka or PGA.

    I have heard Vodka works... Does it affect the taste?

    Adding Vodka or PGA tends to add a little more TH. It can make it slightly less sweet also.

    The key to doing any DIY is to do a small test batch and to write down EXACTLY what you did to make/alter something.

    Excellent advice, and I use Vodka sometimes to thin my juice, it works fine, 5 to ten drops is usually plenty, depending on the size bottle.

    Sometimes it seems like a little alcohol can intensify the taste and make up for the dilution effect.

    If you order from places like AVE with high percentage VG, you can always put a comment in your order for them to thin it out a little for you. I'm sure most places will have no problem doing that for you if you ask.

    Not a penny saved...but my life was. :)

    You can also get a small bottle of the same flavor in a high PG ratio. Then mix the two together.

    But that means you will have no reason to buy Vodka.
