    Mixed my 1st lot of e-liquids today, now have to be patient for a week+
    Made up 9 flavours, the girlfriend chose 8 and I got 1, lol.
    Purchased the flavours and some bits and bobs for mixing from LT Ecigs, I must say their service was excellent.
    Will post again when I've sampled with result, wish me luck. :)

    I use the PG/VG from OliverBrown at £4.99/500ml (on Ebay, delivered next day).
    And 72mg/ml nic base from Alchemists Cupboard at £11.99 for 50ml. Usually do a mix of 45/45/10 (45%VG, 45%PG, 10%Water). Works really well for me.

    Just be careful with the 72mg nic base. Its nasty stuff if you spill or even get a bit on your skin. Deal with it immediately if so.

    I get most of my stuff from FlavourArt
    You might want to shop around here for 'labware'. Prices are very good.

    I only mentioned the water as a personal preference. Some people use no VG at all, others no PG.
    A common blend is 75% PG/25% VG. You might want this if you use a cartomizer.

    Be critical of the kind of water you buy at the shop. Should be purified (distilled)... some warn against buying the stuff (you put in batteries) from Halfords etc. You can find it in some pharmacies or on eBay.
    Personally, I am lucky to get to fill a 100ml bottle for free at our local vet now and then. (Doesn't hurt to ask) ;)

    I also feel the need to mention Nic base. (Sorry if I'm going a bit off topic)
    If you buy the strong stuff (anything over 12mg/l), be sure... absolutely sure that you have a good recipe calculator, and fully understand it. Remember... this is stuff you (and possibly others) will be inhaling. :)

    Any update from the OP - just wondered what the success was of the DIY creations?
