    I'm having good luck with the Norco hand held mixer with my small mouth plastic 15ml tester and chubby 30ml bottles. That one would work with a beaker well.

    I just purchased a scale. I use the ELR calculator and it gives me grams as well as percentage. Do I need to now look up and enter grams in my flavor stash? Or are the grams for my percentage accurate enough?

    These are the values I use
    PG-1.038
    VG-1.26
    Flavors-1.00
    PG Nic-1.035 100mg
    VG Nic-1.235 100mg
    There can be slight differences in the weight of flavorings but IMHO its not worth the trouble. 1.00 works fine

    Got smart and went back to beginners page on ELR and learned my weights are already installed on calculator. Thank you for the help @dc99. Have bookmarked those values incase they are needed in the future.

    Dan's is the calculator I have used since the beginning. I do also use ELR because I can input my flavorings and save them for when I want make recipes. And it keeps track of the amount you have left after using a flavor. It keeps costs and all. The program can even make suggestions of what mixes to make by using the flavors you input. And it is free but he takes voluntary donations.

    :)

    Funny you should mention that. Right now our local Mom and Pop cable system is down and I'm using my Android phone's WIFI hot spot to connect to ECF. It's just a matter of turning on the WiFi hotspot and connecting as you would on your normal WiFi connection. I'm getting about 11 mbps on the phone (but have seen it go to 30mbps), which is just a little less than I get from my 16mbps cable internet WiFi from the router in my home. You just turn on WiFi Hotspot in your phone's settings menu, set a password so your neighbors won't connect to it, and find it on your laptop or desktop and connect. Once you're done, just turn off the WiFi hotspot on your phone.

    Data usage is the same whether you connect with a lap top or your phone. I'm on the 2gb phone plan with carryover data that drops off after the 2nd month. Right now I have 3gb to use before they bump me to the next tier. The planned data allowance rises and falls with usage.

    OK DIY'ers where can I find the Windows program for DIY that keeps track of your stock? It is also a calculator for DIY.

    I think you might mean the calculator by Scubabatdan. Here's a link to see if that's what you are looking for:
    Ejuice calculator (added quantity calculations)

    It isn't a program, but there are formulas within the spreadsheet that calculate percentages to mix juice like many other juice calculators available.

    Oh, I know. I have Excel and found the spreadsheet much more of a bother than JuiceCalculator.

    Had a quick look and it looks a lot like JuiceCalculator. Right down to features.
    Then I took a peek into their forums.
    Someone wanted to know about the two hour trial. To me that says it needs registered/paid to fully work after the free period.
    Take a look at the one @Burnie linked.
