    I ran out of nic half though mixing my nic mix. That gained me a 250ml bottle to make more nic mix.....LOL. It's my first glass bottle that big:) So I made the trip to the freezer and hauled out another bottle of nic and finished mixing. Hoping to mix some juice before hubs gets back.Gotta do some house maintenance first......at least dishes.:lol:

    between here and there
    UPDATE

    This has now become a very good flavor. As we all know that sometimes the juice needs a little heat to start the flavors coming out. With this flavor, the more I used it(and the wicking became more saturated) the flavor started to dial in. I should have anticipated that(but didn't) as it also happens with some of the other flavors I have. Sometimes I need a whole tank full before flavor starts tasting as it should.
    I will try not to make that mistake again:facepalm:

    :)

    I do that too. I usually use small tanks so I like to run a couple tankfuls though before making a decision.

    I actually have a simple mix done with the Pur cheesecake flavors. It's very well steeped at this point. I'll have to try it soon.

    I got one small tobacco blend done. INW Gold Ducat is not my go to mixing tobacco so I just did a 15ml.. I do have a few other mixes written done but lack the motivation at this time.

    I've got that mix steeping and forgot about it until you mentioned it. It should be ready by now. I don't remember who posted the link but I went ahead and ordered an entheon rda. I've also got an ammit rda clone coming. I just couldn't bring myself to pay $30 plus shipping for an rda.

    Yes, the one that is labeled just Grapefruit is the yellow Grapefruit. It tastes much the same as the White Grapefruit to me, but is sweeter.

    In my Sea Breeze, I use 1% Pink Guava, 1.75% Ruby Red, .25% INW White. You might want to play with those percentages a little - maybe upping the INW White a bit as it is the most tart of the three. Mixed with cranberry in the Sea Breeze, the Ruby Red is perfect and the Pink Guava lushes it out a bit.

    I'm going to start mixing nic base, man. It sounds so handy. LOL.

    @FranC LOL the way you keep playing with your cart... I must tell a cautionary tale, and it is that my summer over in England (where I first started smoking, btw) me and my (then) BF and (then) best friend found a couple of shopping carts, and were having races with them. Drunk. Super fun, until the police or constable or whatever they're called showed up and told us we were engaging in "cart abuse."

    We didn't get ticketed or anything but he was pretty stern. So keep an eye out. :D

    I hope you find your magic set of flavors, actually! I would never have the patience for that. I'm going to pick out (a few) boozy flavors soon here, and just hope they're in stock once the July 4th sales start. LOL.

    It surprised me too. LOL I emptied out my bottle of TFA already. I do need to order but am holding out for 4th of July sales. This will be my last order for a while. I am moving from Virginia to Seattle for a year (in mid-July) so will pack up and ship my DIY stuff after I mix up enough juice to last for a bit.

    Me too but since this is temporary, it isn't so bad. I don't have to move furniture - just my "stuff." I will be staying with my daughter and her three kiddos there while her husband is doing a fellowship in DC.

    It is, it is!

    Measure flavor into bottle, top with base, shake, done.

    Do mix the base at slightly higher than your preferred nic, since the flavorings will bring it down a touch. And keep in mind that most flavors are in PG, so will also affect the final ratio a little.

    My BCF cart totals almost $60 due too 3 FLV and some pricy 30ml sizes. I don't think I've ever spent that much on one order. At least not anywhere recently.
