    I'm sorry if this is posted the wrong place. If it is, please point me to the correct forum.

    What is the purpose of putting Vodka in your e-juice?
    Is it to add throat hit or cut a VG base?

    Many people use it for both. I used Everclear (PGA) to thin my VG, but it didn't really do anything for me as far as TH. It's great for cleaning and sterilizing.

    So is there a difference between Vodka and Everclear as far as TH is concerned?

    Yeah most vodka is 80 proof, Everclear is 190 proof and will have more TH

    Any ideas about how much should be added per ml? I'm guessing a little goes a long way!

    Everclear or Golden Grain is better to use for your atomizer than vodka as well, because the vodka will contain more sugar. Attys don't like sugar.

    P.S. off-topic--I darn near can't read "atty" without thinking attorney!

    I've never had TH from using PGA-- tried it straight in my base PG/VG nic juice... nada, nothing, no tickle. It did thin the hell out of my liquid tho & add a little taste.
    Personally I rather not thin my DIY mixes-- I find a better hit by direct inhaling my DIY vapes vs. the mouth puff/pull thingy.
    IMO TH can be as subjective as taste-- YMMV.

    I use a pure grain spirits for cleaning and cutting...and a little does go a long way..i would suggest using 1ml/60ml of juice...and go up from there...better to start small and go up ")
    It is good for cleaning too! I believe it is 180proof...everclear is illegal in NY so this was the next best thing....

    I've added everclear at up to 20% and never improved TH I refuse to go any higher than 20% (dont need any e-juice flash fire exploding attys)

    I still use it to cut the VG its good for that,and air born nasties wont find an easy home in any thing thats cut with alcohol.

    true...PG is also a natural antibacterial..even the vapor kills microorganisms in the air ...i just found this out about a month ago...theres a couple articles and studies on the subject also!
