So i've been vaping for 6 plus years. Used tons of different hardware, atomizers, cartomizers, tanks, mods, pre-made juices, blah blah blah... But,, i'm about to lose my DIY virginity. Never done it before, but am ready to dive in head first. What I have in my arsenal... *Tons of pg based concentrated flavors *1 quart 100% vg *1 liter 100mg/ml 50/50 pg/vg nicotine base *lab equip (beakers, graduated cylinders, pipettes etc) *safety gear (goggles, gloves etc) *bottles and syringes galore I've been reading up a LOT on DIY, but until I actually do it, I'm still a complete novice. I have a few specific questions that I've searched out for answers for, and have come up slightly empty handed with.... I already know the calculations to cut the nic base down to 6mg/ml (or what will end up being 6mg/ml after 20% flavor is added). What i don't know,, 1) Does it make more sense to premix a massive amount of strictly the 100mg nic base with the vg base ahead of time, without flavoring, so as not to have to dress up like Walter White every time I want to try out flavors. For the Breaking Bad deprived, I want to handle the 100mg nic as little as possible. 2) To ask this in a simple way. In a smaller scale.. Let's say I have a 50ml graduated cylinder, but no 50ml bottle, only 2 30ml empty bottles (not the case, but just for this example). If i pour and measure the nic base and then the vg base into the cylinder, i obviously can't pour the entire mix into a 30ml bottle to be able to shake it up to mix it... So how would I go about actually mixing (as in stirring etc) within the graduated cylinder before pouring a portion of the mix into a bottle? In other words, since the vg base will be more viscous than the nic base, i can't imagine that simply pouring from the cylinder would result in an evenly mixed base.. So how would i go about doing that? 3) am i better off only pouring into the cylinder what i can fit into one bottle, and then repeat, measure out another bottle's worth and so on and so on? 4) am i better off with let's say 10 30ml bottles of my unflavored, mixed down to 6mg base, or 1 300ml bottle that i draw from and put into smaller bottles when i'm ready to try out a new flavor recipe? 5) am i better off not doing any of this and just sucking it up (not literally) and mixing fresh batches of base when needed, which results in opening up and working with the 100mg nic bottle on a more frequent basis? I'm sure i'll have more questions. This should be more than enough to bore you with and make your eyes bleed from reading for the meantime. Thanks in advance!!!
