I have a big glass bottle of that I've been letting steep, it kinda smells like nail polish right now but seems like it could be something good in time. How long do you let yours steep?
i guess this thread has already proven that there arent any to avoid then. i dont touch dekang and i think theyre nasty. to each their own.
as far as steeping i let it steep until it tastes good. if i get to a couple months then i know its not going to get much better if at all and toss it.
I'm having the same problem with Gambit.....bought 2 bottles!

Avoid businesses registered in a residence; it's not an appropriate environment for a mixing lab.
If you can't even find the address (even after checking the domain registration on WHOIS), then forget about them. *always* avoid sites registered less than 10 days. Be wary if it's less than 3 months.
Lookup the company registration information. You should always be able to find the business owner's name.
And always read over a site's shipping and return policy.
As previously posted, Alien Vapor has a bad rep. I haven't heard bad things about their juices, but they purposely called their company "Alien Vapor," which is very close to "Alien Visions" and they make clones of well known Alien Visions products like Boba's Bounty. Riding on the back of someone else's reputation isn't cool.
Another vendor to avoid is Catskill Mountain Vapor Store. Google is your friend about this one. [Moderated]
ETA: Every once and awhile a shill for Catskill shows up on ECF. You can always tell, since it's a new member and their first post is always about how great Catskill is.

I personally only buy from local vendors. I have a good relationship with the owner of the place I'm going now and I actually know where he gets his ingredients, what they are, and the person who mixes for me. I guess my approach is something along the lines of "Who do you trust more, the farmer in the next county you've seen feed the cow, butcher it and serve it up on a plate, or the greasy teenager at McDonalds frying up pink mystery slime?"
I have to say, I would NEVER order fluid from FastTech, or anything from a head shop or gas station. The only exception to that rule is a place here called Smokies House of Pipes. Their fluid comes from a local vendor walking distance from my house. Of course, considering the circumstances, I would much rather just buy direct.
Ive only ordered from Alien Visions, expecting some in the mail tomorrow. After that I think im going to order from Mount Baker Vapor because ive heard alot of good things about them.
