    Default Have i got this right? DIY

    I'm moving to higher VG ratios due to suffering sore throats a lot from vaping a lot of high PG ratio e juices.

    It's quite expensive buying 10mls for VG juice which is around 4-5 and that lasts me around a week.

    I figure D.I.Y is a good way to go as the price difference is vast!...

    If I get..

    VG - Vegetable Glycerine = 100ml 2.40 - http://www.ltecigs.larsentilbrook.co.uk/index.php?route=product/product&path=61_71_100&product_id=89


    Diamond Crystal VG 18mg = 100mg (uk nicotine base) 6.42 = Diamond Crystal VG 18mg

    I combine the 2 ingredients to get 200ml of (9mg) 0.9% pure VG vapable e-juice?

    no flavour needed as i can't taste at the moment

    Also is have no PG at all advisable? I think i can handle a little. In the past when vaping a lot (when out drinking) the next morning my throat is so sore, and i can only put it down to chain vaping so much 80pg 20vg juices)

    That would work, and yes you would have 9 mg liquid as a result.

    As a possible flavoring you could consider menthol crystals dissolved in a very small amount of vodka. The menthol helped me although I was never a menthol smoker, hated menthol cigarettes. It was a flavor that cut through when I couldn't seem to taste anything, or what I could tasted bad.

    The resulting mixture would be 9 mg. Since is 100% VG it will be very thick viscosity wise. You may want to use 80 ml plain VG and 20 ml distilled water which would result in a 10 % distilled water ratio, this would work better in tank type vaporizers. Makes a lot of vapor. Good luck with your DIY adventure.

    No problem with PG free. I wish I could find a good source for PG free flavors. But as said above you will need to think the all VG liquid with about 10% water.

    Flavorless isn't that bad although without flavor, all VG and low nicotine you may not have any throat hit and that can take some getting used to.

    I might get this too to add the menthol flavouring?

    I don't mind a small percentage of PG 10% say.

    I haven't tried their flavor but 2 things, 10% menthol would probably be strong. Start low and work up.
    Menthol by itself tastes like your licking vapor rub.

    I have nasal polyps so i can't smell or taste half the time! but the menthol give a nice refreshing feeling in the mouth which i kinda like compared to having non-menthol which is just mute in my mouth.
