    Hi guys, i think i want to try and make my own juice, i live in the UK so a lot of suppliers info on the forum comes from the USA.
    i cant seem to find a juice making section on the UK site.
    i found a supplier called vapable and i am thinking about getting
    10ml rhubarb and custard concentrate.
    100ml vg
    100ml pg
    50ml nicotine pg 72mg
    At the moment i use pre made rhubarb and custard 70pg 30vg 06 nicotine.
    My question is how many bottles of 10ml can i make with the above amount?
    also apart from bottles and syringes is there anything else that i need?
    I have read quite a bit about mixing and it seems a bit daunting and dangerous using 72mg nicotine
    should i be dressed up like an astronaut ?
    Has anyone else used vapable as a uk supplier?
    thanks for any help. i also posted up on the UK site but as yet no replies .

    To make 100mls @ 6mg 70pg/30vg you will need:
    8.3mls of your 72mg pg nicotine
    30mls VG
    61.7mls PG or a total of 61.7 including pg and flavorings.

    Your flavorings are normally pg based so to keep your 70/30 mix you will need to lower the amount of the pg in your mix by the same amount of flavoring you add.

    I have blogged a bit of info on how I mix. You might find it helpful

    hi @puffertwo. I recommend a juice calculator. Here are 2 links for e juice mixing calculator :

    http://ejuice.breaktru.com/ <--download I use
    http://ecigvape.com/pgvg_calculator.php <---online

    UK links:
    http://allaboute-cigarettes.proboards.com/thread/1148/cigarette-liquid-vendors-discount-codes?page=1&scrollTo=23191
    http://ukvapers.org/Thread-List-of-flavour-concentrate-suppliers

    I treat my nic (I use 100mg) like drain cleaner. ALWAYS wear eye protection (I use cheater glasses). Wipe up spills immediately. If you get it on your hands just wash them. Keep away from children and pets! (I have neither in home).

    Different juice flavors have different recommended concentrations. If you use the downloaded calculator you'll see where to input the percentage (%) of flavor. I've used flavors where as little as 3.5 % is full strength to 20% on another vendor. You'll have to find info or go by trial and error.

    Good luck in your journey.

    Might want to watch several You Tube videos. Will give you an idea of whats going on. Suggest you ignore anyone shown using drops as a method of measure. Might want to use an e liquid calculator.
