    Default How to sweeten up e-liquid?

    Hello all! First post, but have been lurking for a few months now . I have found that I really love the juice from Copper Creek, but I got too high nic in some, and wanted to know if there was a way to smooth it out so I don't waste the bottles (30ml). Talking about VooDoo in particular. I can do it for a little while, but the throat gets sore pretty quick.

    Also, I got the coffee sampler from there as well, and another cappucino from another vendor. I am a hardcore cream and sugar kind of guy, and was wondering if there is a way to sweeten these flavors (again so I'm not wasting juice).

    Thanks!

    Various vendors sell sweatner, such as Tasty Vapor. I'd suggest testing with a small amount first(say 3ml) just so you can get it right, to your taste that is.

    Hi jlinko and welcome to ECF. You can dilute the juice with Pg and/ or VG BUT realize it will also dilute the flavor. I would suggest you find out what the right nic level is and then buy some lower nic juice in the same flavor and mix the 2. For example:
    if you're vaping 24 mg and it's too strong you could always buy some 18, mix it 50/ 50 and have 21 mg
    if you're vaping 24 mg and it's too strong you could buy some 12 mg nic, mix it 50/ 50 and have 18 mg
    To sweeten flavors you can purchase Ethyl Maltol and add it to your juices.
    Good Luck, Vapoor.

    If you like a liquid, but it's too strong, try ordering some at a lower nic level and then just mixing it together.

    To sweeten something, some people will use a bit of ethyl maltol, but you might prefer to try Perfumers Apprentice - Bavarian Cream Flavor or Perfumers Apprentice - French Vanilla Flavor

    Add a couple percent or one of the above, shake, and vape. Maybe 3 - 5% (0.9 - 1.5ml added to 30 ml) will be fine. It's better to go slow, try, then add just a little more if it's not quite what you want.

    Use a little oral syringe from a pharmacy if you want precision, otherwise a rule of thumb is about 25 drops equals one ml.

    (There are other sources for vanilla/sweetener -- TPA is a pretty popular source for do-it-yourself people.)

    Good luck!

    If you like Very Sweet, you might pick up a Bottle of Sucralose. It is much Sweeter than most Sweeteners. You can buy it at places that sell DIY stuff.

    If you see this before you order, pick up a Bottle of Sucralose with your order. It doesn't increase the shipping and it is nice to have around.

    Most of the people here have answered your questions. I got my sweetener from TPA. Whoever your vendor is, you only need a small amount. A 3ml bottle will go a long way! My rule of thumb is about 1-2 drops for every 10ml. I've also found that after adding my drops, the juice becomes sweeter over time, so less is more. I've heard of people ruining juices by adding too much sweetener so be careful with that stuff.
