    just started this diy ejuice, and everything i made had an odd aftertaste, i finally tracked it down, i am sure it was the vg i just got from walmart. I made a mix of 10% capellas vanilla custard with 5% boston creme pie, no walmart vg this time. this isnt too bad, and is vapable so perhaps i may be headed in the right direction. Where is a good source/brand for vg?

    Some walmarts carry the humco vg that's marked as vegetable glycerin as well as the glycerin that's just labeled as glycerin. If your walmart carries it, at least you would know you're getting vegetable glycerin. It may taste the same though, as a lot of folks say it's the same thing.

    Edit: Mean time order a bottle of this. This tastes sweet like vg should, and no 'off' taste.

    I agree that walmart's humco VG doesnt have an off taste. Although I've never tried VG from wizard labs or any other place besides walmart and cvs, so I can really be a good judge. But I can be a judge of my flavors and well, they're pretty good.


    Hi droptopjim,
    I believe the Walmart and CVS are the same. Many people find it good, but your not alone in not liking -we all have different tastes.
    I haven't tried the Humco yet, but I did buy one recently. Have bought these and liked.

    Humco states that it's glycerin is made from either animal or vegetable fat. This was a few years ago so things could have changed.

    Per the stickied thread here it is :

    "...Brands of Glycerin, USP not included in the above list would have to be verified as solely vegetable source by direct contact with the manufacturer/packager/distributor listed on the label. "

    I've seen several posts from folks that maintain that the USP grade is the magic words to look for on anything labeled just glycerin because that would mean it is vegetable sourced. That's probably true but another thing we haven't considered is shelf life.

    All I know is I went to use a little of the humco glycerin and it didn't taste good. Not real bad, but just a little off some way. I put it back in the medicine cabinet to use on my skin, but after a few weeks I started to notice a slight odor when I went to use some. I threw it out. I had picked up two bottles so I opened the second and it smelled fine and I've been using it on my hands. I just now went and tasted it and it does indeed taste just fine. Nice and sweet with no 'off' note at all.

    So I say taste a drop of it, and if it tastes fine then it probably is fine.

    CVS brand has an expiration date on it. The one I bought a few weeks ago has 4-18 on it. I'm fair sure that I have seen 2 years mentioned somewhere else however.


    My Humco from Walmart has 4-18 also. The others that I bought have been 2 years or no expiration noted. Just like other things in life - doesn't mean it goes bad on that date. Some veterans are going beyond 2 years in the gallon size as I type and hopeful we will know more from their experience :)

    yes, USP are the magic words. U.S. Pharmacopoeia - Which means that the company abides by the stringent methods and practices in manufacturing. These standards are world renowned and are used by some countries as a default since it provides a good level of consumer safety. U.S. Pharmacopeial Convention

    You definitely are not going to go wrong buying something USP grade as the cheapest brand to the most expensive must adhere to the same guidelines in order to receive that labeling grade. That is why I get my PG at tractor supply company. USP Grade Propylene Glycol. Works great and is 20 a gallon like it would be on Amazon but with no wait for shipping.

    +1 for Tractor supply PG and CVS VG. I use both without any problem. I use the CVS VG without any water added.

    I bought CVS vg today, I already had walmart humco and wizard labs. Why did I feel it necessary to go to CVS? :blink: Haven't cracked it open yet, though. I'm seriously considering getting a gallon of pg and vg from Essential Depot, but the initial outlay is daunting. Tried ordering the smallest bottle, the shipping was like $10 or more.

    I made a 10 ml batch of 90/10 [VG/Vodka] and it had a sweet taste to it. The undiluted VG tastes somewhat sweet for me. I use the humco brand from walmart.
