    Hi, I've been vaping for a few years and been buying the same juice for almost the same amount if time. I use VGod Cubano Black. My local shop carries it in stock usually but its been out for a while and they said it was on back order. I can find it online but most of the time the nicotine level isn't what I prefer or they want over $25 a bottle. I've been interested in making my own and thought I would give it a try.

    Where would I start? How would I mix a juice that clones the type i use?

    Hello and welcome to ECF :thumbs:.

    I see a recipe for Vgod Cubano over at e-Liquid Recipes .com. Whether it's any good or not, I don't know. To start making your own juice, you'll need nicotine base , propylene glycol, vegetable glycol, bottles, etc (depending if you want to mix by volume or by weight).

    Below is exactly how I mix.

    Welcome and glad you joined.
    One shot flavors are for those interested in mixing their own and want to start out simple. One shot flavors (OS/Flavor Blends) are premixed flavors that are only designed to be used on their own and mixed with a base of Propylene Glycol, Vegetable Glycerin and Nicotine (at least one/two/all of the three).Say you use three flavors at 4%, 3% and 2.5%. The one-shot/concentrate is just an entire bottle of those three flavors in the correct ratio. One shot mixing is supposed to be close to the flavor promoted on the bottle. These mixes may allow some adjustment of the strength (percentage) of the mix. OS Mixing can be a good introductory to DIY. One shots and flavor blends are simply added per directions to the mixer's desired mixing base, Shake and Vape (SnV) or steep as directed.
