    rejoice,

    Glycerin is the VG; it will say propylene glycol if it is PG. I am still trying to figure out which one is thicker since I have not bought the PG yet.

    Propylene glycol is thinner than glycerine and many of the throat dryness problems are caused by pg. This can be sorted by drinking or sucking sweets.

    Thanks Kate. I don't know about anyone else, but most of my liquids seem rather watery. When I mix my own no nic, I use glycerin and not only does it come out thicker, but it seems to leach to the atomizer very well.....and lots of vapor for a long time. I don't know....the thinner one seems to "run out" of the cart a lot faster and doesn't last very long. Maybe I'll just stick with the glycerin for now

    Thanks Kate so much. I guess I better stay with VG. Its just the VG makes my juice too sweet. I ordered some nonflavor nic juice and looking forward to making my own juice. I bought this tobacco flavoring that I really like.

    No problem. The problem with glycerine is that it is sweeter than pg and it mutes flavours. I use a mix of both pg and glycerine now for diy mix.

    Hi there
    I've purchased 2 Glycerins thinking that one of them is PG.

    I bought the VG food grade from E-bay as was posted and recommended, and bought the other from Boots chemist (The BP grade for cough mixture).

    It was later that I realized both of these were Glycerins, am I right? Or wrong?

    My question is, where do I buy PG?
    Please recommend a website / link that I can purchase this from.
    Thanks

    Cheers!

    This is where I got mine from in the UK Madis, I don't know what deals they still have but you could contact them if you need to - http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...d3b0a3fff3b0e0

    Some people in the States say USP grade pg can be bought at agricultural stores, it's used for adding to feed.

    Thanks so much Kate!
    I've e-mail the seller, and also asked for a smaller bottle if possible...
    500mls ? Probably I'll create a drink with it!

    I've been looking for PGs lately, but am too scared if I selected the wrong one...
    antifreeze tester....treat ketosis in dairy cattle? OH NO!
