    I need help, I really want to make my own juice, but I don't know where to go for vegetable glyserine, I was told Walmart, and then I was told don't use that because it's not food grade, and then was told go to a whole foods store, plus I have to get the nicotine, and flavorings, and empty bottles, plus learn how to make it, a little overwhelmed here, but I will learn it, any help would be appreciated.

    Wizard labs starter kit. Read a few forums. Done.

    By the way, if you are looking for 'in store' products, Hobby Lobby and similar stores cary Lorannes flavoring. I still go there for quick pick ups to save on shipping.

    Um, it's USP grade. The P is Pharma... That's purer than food grade.

    I think the first thing you need to do is stop listening to people who don't know what they are talking about. I imagine that once that dribble is tuned out, it will be much easier to figure it out.

    I think there is a hobby lobby right by where I live so that would be easy for me to check out.

    Compared to anything you can find at a hobby lobby. This thread has inspired me to dip into diy juice.

    Well, I'm a fan of Lorann's Pina Collada because it works better for me than the ones I've tried from TPA/TFA and Capella. I like a few of their flavors.

    I like a number of TPA/TFA's, and a few of Capella's, a number of FA's, a few of the SC's from ECX and VZ.

    For new mixers I usually recommend Capella's because they seldom hit levels 7 & 8 which makes it easier to get the flavoring levels figured out.

    Note:
    TPA/TFA is The Perfumer's Apprentice / The Flavor Apprentice
    FA is Flavour Art
    SC's are Super Concentrates from EcigExpress and Vaping Zone
    Levels 7 & 8 refer to the chart of flavoring levels from my blog on flavoring levels and some silly mixers think it is a good read.
    Added this note since we tend to speak in our own "mixer lingo" not because we are exclusive, but because we are lazy type-ers.

    I was also wondering, if the recipe calls for water, what percentage should I use, and should it be distilled? Or should I put any in at all?

    I really do appreciate you taking the time to point me in the right direction on all this, I think I may have just obtained a new hobby.

    I may try to make like a strawberry cream juice, which flavor is more prominent than the other or should it be a 50/50 mix?, I guess it depends on the strength of the flavor? I was thinking Bavarian cream and strawberry.

    If a recipe calls for water, it should say how much water. I don't use water in any of my recipes.

    Yep, depends on the strength and also how they two play with each other.

    Just a suggestion, this is art not accounting. Remember that Even a brand you might not be drawn to can be wonderful for use in special cases or to suggest to someone else. The flavors are tools for you to create with, don't disregard any of your tools. Oh, and all flavor vendors have strengths and weaknesses so it's more about finding the "right" caramel not the "best" caramel, if you take my meaning.

    that is good to know as well, so your saying just because one brand works with a certain flavor, a different brand of the same version of their flavor may not work as well with the same flavor.
