    With tip of the cap to Mr. Mann...
    To Vendors- Help save us from ourselves. Build an optional customer profile so that when we order something with peanuts and we are allergic, it will send an alert. Same for all VG or all PG when we like blends or the opposite. Just a verification to keep us from receiving something we didn't order (or at least think we didn't order).

    I would like to give a shout out to John and the gang at High Desert Vapes. Always gives a sample. Quick to answer a question and quick to ship as well as keeping you informed every step of the ordering process. Great prices and great customer service. Their selection of hardware is a little limited but, inventory is expensive so they tend to only carry what I think most people will order. Nice selection of Juice and flavorings for the DIY folkls. I will positively be back. Thanks Guys,
    Matt

    Thanks for the comments, Matt. This thread is a little different than commenting on what vendors you like, but I still appreciate your comment. I am not sure how much of the thread you've read, but if you start at the beginning, you will see what and where this thread is meant to go.

    p.s. I have another thread http://www.e-cigarette-forum.com/fo...discussion/304212-top-5-vendors-e-liquid.html where we would love to hear more about your appreciation for HDV. :)

    I know you didn't mean that to be funny but I am laughing so hard right now!! I have wondered the same thing after watching a few diy videos on youtube. Some of those places were a bit on the untidy side. That is a great suggestion!!

    I have yet to see any bat caves posted on any juice vendor's sight (other than an older video by Johnson Creek). I would be happy if someone can correct me and direct me to where I might find this.

    Aromaejuice has photos, and Ahlusion will soon be releasing some back-stage passes.

    p.s. There is probably a reason most don't show! :facepalm: If they got it, it seems like it would be a very positive asset for credibility's sake.

    Great thread!

    I'd like to see some ingredients listed - not necessarily the actual flavors and the exact recipe of course but listing ingredients should be standard as with every other consumable product we use.

    For example if you are using USDA non oil based flavorings or not I'd like to know that.

    If you are adding EM, cider vinegar, sucralose, distilled water, ect I'd like to know that.

    I want to know the date the juice was made and the suggested expiration date.

    I'd like to know that the nic content is being tested on all batches.

    I'd like to see that the juice is being produced and bottled in a sterile environment.

    I don't want this information so I can save money by duplicating recipes cheaper - juice making is an art that requires a lot of trial and error to get the ratios just right - not something I personally could easily achieve nor strive to do. I just want clearer information as to what I am vaping and have a comfort level with the ingredients and methods used in creating these delicious juices.

    Vape On!

    LOL! Very funny but realistically this can be very true. Bathtub juice would not end up on my list of all day vapes...

    Vape on!

    There are a few that do these things you wish. Thanks for the pertinent addition to the thread.

    Onward.

    Thank you!

    I will seek out these vendors - I have observed that some do have more disclosure than others regarding ingredients and methods. I will continue to pay more attention to these points on my juice shopping excursions...

    Vape On!

    Johnson Creek once included their ingredient list. Just had to click a button on their website. Well, it has some worthless gobbly guck on there now (and has been for a month). I wrote and asked if they could put the ingredient list back. They said they made a download error and assured me they would get it back up. It's been a month and as of 2 minutes and 12 seconds ago, the gobbly guck is still up. Kudos to Johnson Creek for displaying your ingredients for years. Boo and Hiss that you seem to have changed that practice in the last month.

    Thanks Mann. I looked at Aromaejuice's site and sure enough they have four photos. Two are of the office and two of the shop. Good for Aromaejuice! Kind of looks like my childhood bedroom three seconds before my parents walked up the stairs with paddle in hand to inspect it. Hope they didn't do to their shop what I did to my bedroom three seconds after they left. :)

    Actually I think those photos were taken some time ago just before he moved in and Jerry from Aroma had taken the pictures as a proud poppa.
    I was there at the end of August and yes, things looked different in that equipment and materials had been moved in and production had been ongoing for some time. My arrival certainly didn't appear to have precipitated a house-cleaning; it was business as usual.

    I would say that inviting customers to check out the lab is the highest case of transparency! I will be making a trip to Ahlusion soon for the same purposes.

    Kudos to Aroma and Ahlusion...and JC. (I don't know if JC takes visits though.)
