    I've been looking at this kit at The House of Vapor

    elementflavors

    Kit Includes:
    Master Pack
    1- 4oz bottle of PG
    1- 4oz Bottle of VG
    1- 30ML bottle of Nicotine E-liquid. 48 MG
    1- Sweetner.1 Dram
    1- Crisp.1 Dram
    Bonus 3 free 3ML Dropper Bottles


    $$24.99




    Is that a good place to start? Or should i just skip the small stuff and goto walmart and get a gallon of PG, and just buy nicotine and flavors? I want to start doing this soon :)

    Its hard to find pg in stores. This looks like a good deal. You will just need some flavors to finish it out and get started.

    I use One stop DIY and nicvape.com. I Have used DIY flavor shack occationally. All are really good Suppliers for DIY. I just placed an order yesterday with Blue-mist vapors from a tip by Cuseguy. They look good and have a nice selection of DIY stuff.

    ...but easy to find on amazon.com or in farm supply stores.

    That does look like a good deal.

    Well i ordered my PG from Giant Grocery store. Now i just need nicotine and flavors. Since I'm using all pg, should i use a nicotine that is VG base to thicken it up a bit?

    I just started DIYing today. Got most of my stuff from One Stop DIY. Everything shipped same day and arrived in 2 days so I'll definitely be using them again.

    You could do that. Try plugging some numbers into one of the calculators to figure out what you would get with VG based nic. Based on my calc, using VG based nic will get you a mix that's somewhere around 70/30. I use a 50/50 based nic, and I'm happy with my first couple of mixes. I should have started DIYing a long time ago!

    Nicvape.com has a sale going on right now, I think i'm going to order my nic and flavors from there. Anyone used them before? Hopefully the ry4 is good. I am ordering a bunch of flavors also.


    What is a good Nicotine MG to start with? Should i get 30ml of 100mg or 50mg? Wouldn't i use less if i get it in 100mg?

    For me, the tougher thing to find (at a reasonable price) is the vg!

    Capella has a 4oz. (120mL) bottle for $2.95. It's not much cheaper than other places (One Stop DIY has the same size for $4.50) but it's still the cheapest I could find.

    GRAS & USP Grade has great prices but the S&H kills it on the larger sizes.

    100mg is pretty strong stuff. It truly is a poison to reckon with. Meaning...wear gloves and eye protection. Get the 50mg (still pretty powerful) for your first DIY.

    Yow, that's expensive! That's 74 cents per oz, not counting shipping. I can get a gallon off of Amazon for $54.66, including shipping. That's 42 cents per oz, and was what I was already considering expensive.

    ...however, Silent Soldier's suggestion is the best price I've found anywhere, local or not, even including shipping. 1/2 gallon for $22.73 inc. shipping. That's 35 cents/oz. I still think there has to be a local supplier of bulk vg, so I can avoid the shipping charges. Until then, fulluv scents is the winner!
