    I'm aging, unfortunately

    But I got a few Ianwera Absolutes, and other flavors I got from there, as well as Mom&Pop tobacco flavors, STEEPING in a cardboard box, in my bedside cupboard.
    Funny how the level drops day after day... But at least it gives them a good shake and airing...

    And that reminds me...more M&P's needed. I emptied 2 of my flavors, and the others are good for...er...10ml each. New month, new command

    Im steeping some Gran Mariner ( orange) Black Cavendish/Burly in 100VG
    A dark Chocolate Cavendish in PGA

    the PGA is at room temp sealed and the VG's are in the crockpot at 140F...

    BK is making his own tobacco extracts , using a crockpot is one of the methods used for that .

    Im trying to do DIY extracting of flavored aromatic pipe tobaccos in 100VG ( primarily black cavendish/burly). I use a crockpot set on warm/low to get to 135-140F with a 2-3 day steeping time ( this is the real meaning of steeping ). So far Ive done a cherry, chocolate/cherry, chocolate mint, and an orange. Also did a Churchill Cigar and presently doing a dark chocolate cavendish in PGA. Results so far seem to be decient, nothing outstanding yet... but Im still learning processes. The Pros dont give up thier secrets...

    What Bunny Killer (Scot) is doing is EXTRACTING.
    Several Hours in a Crock Pot would be Heat Extraction.
    Several weeks at room temperature is called Cold Maceration.
    Blending pre-measured amounts of PG, VG, Flavors (extracted or otherwise) and Liquid Nicotine is Mixing.
    Allowing the finished product time for the components to fully blend together is Steeping.

    BK, have you gone over to the DIY Sub-Forums yet ? A few of the Natural Tobaccos crowd (Johni comes to mind) are posting threads of their own extraction trials, even listing equipment and amounts. Some are rather specific on the types of tobaccos (Oriental, Burley, Virginia, etc.). Granted, it wouldn't be the same as Adam and Heather opening up their recipe book, but might be worth your while to read a few threads, maybe even compare notes. just sayin.....

    Ive spent hours over there reading, taking notes. Been finding that there is a general concensus on methods and equipment that produce good juice/liquid and have employed such methods in my efforts to produce a good liquid. As far as some of the tobacco choices they use,.... I went to the local cigar shop and did a price check... sorry, but I dont want to afford 45$ for a single cigar... ( and that is the medium price range) some of the upper end cigars go for 125$ each ouch!

    I guess the only thing to do at his point in time is to purchase a "real" quality NET made in the same method that Naturally Extracted Tobaccos.com ( Clay??) produces and compare mine to the purchased one and see how far off I am..
