I got the base mixed and hope the get the recipes done sometime today.
@hittman I'll throw some p400 in the package for you.
I did the PEG test with WF Hazelnut and Cream. It's a flavor that's sweet to me but I have no problem vaping it. The PEG400 in a 20/20/60 mix made it taste noticeably less sweet. Hoping this will work for my fruity mixes as well.........
Sounds like a reason to add a window unit or two for those really hot days. Here in the Southeast central A/C is a given when houses are built. Right now (8:30am), it's 75 degrees and 87% humidity outside. Inside it's 78 and the humidity is 55% (comfortable). We've had a lot of heavy late afternoon rains (typical in June and July).
It's cloudy here and more predictions of heavy rain throughout the day. Last night about 6pm I was out and the rains were relentless. It was water across the road with rooster tails all the way home! People were actually driving slow in a 55mph zone.
Thanks! I'll be looking forward to trying it.
I'm waiting on maturity to hit on about eight 50ml bottles of juice I mixed up on June 29. It's three weeks out and I'm taste testing several that are still light colored and translucent. I generally like light and clear in my tobacco and sweet juices, but these aren't producing flavor as I expected using midrange flavor percentages.
I found out the hard way a couple of years ago that it's best to wait and have to add more flavor than it is to mix at higher flavor % and have to cut them later with unflavored. I also learned the hard way early on that you have to shake the flavor bottles for a couple of minutes to make sure the flavors haven't stratified.
I've been doing DIY for almost 3 years and still don't consider myself to be a DIY guru. You experiment and follow the advice of others. Still, valuable experience is gained by the mistakes you make.
I can't imagine not having central AC. This has been the longest stretch of hot weather that I can remember and the humidity has been horrible.
I was thinking about it this morning and was wondering how long it's ok to keep a mixed bottle of liquid. Sometimes I'll get on a kick and use the same recipe for quite a while and will have extra bottles mixed. Then I get tired of it and they sit for a long while. Should I just dump them after a few months or is it ok to keep them?
That's how I come up with recipes. If it's questionable I start with 5ml and tweak.
In glass they last a long time. In plastic I've had some returned to me in probably around a year I wouldn't touch. A lot depends on the flavors. I go by look, smell and ultimately taste if they pass those two tests.
I keep them, just give them a drip taste test. One of my best tasting mixes was one I forgot and didn't get back to for almost 6 months.
I was reading a thread about that last night. The consensus seemed to be, vape it till the nic starts to get peppery. Commercial juices apparently have a two year best by date. But if you buy off the shelf, not many have “born on” dates, so no telling the ages of juices we used before diy.
Actually have one of the non-window / portable ones, does take the edge off.
Please clarify? Is the 60 VG? or PG? Or PEG400?
Good morning mixers! I just woke up as I allowed myself to sleep in (decadence, plus it was hard sleeping next to the husband's moans.
Glad the PEG400 is doing something @FranC ! I got mine at Nic river I don't think there was a sale but it's pretty inexpensive without one. I want to mix, but wake up first and I have some disaster areas of the house to clean etc.
Husband is grump but no longer throwing up. I'll take it. LOL
@NolaMel @hittman @Skunk!
Made it to the PO. Enjoy
60pg,20PEG and 20VG
You're such a sweetheart
I got my 2 mixes done. The wait is on,but a much shorter one for fruity stuff.
Both my fruity mixes include wine. I don't care for just fruits alone. Still they are fruity mixes and the ultimate sweet test for me. I think a 3 day steep should be fine.
The house that my daughter and her husband bought does have one powerful window unit and a good built-in air handler and fan. It does cool most of the house as long as I remember to close the blinds against the greenhouse effect of the powerful sun shining brightly into the house until nearly 10 at night. It is actually chilly today and was yesterday as well but that heat is supposed to come back Monday with temps way higher than average for the Pacific NW. No rain in the forecast for the next 10 days. So far, my Pacific NW experience is far from what I expected. I came armed with raincoats and cardigans.
@classwife I can not remember where it was that you were talking about getting the French Toast but this seems like as good of a place as any I told you it makes a great stuffed french toast so here is the Recipe I use partly based on @dobroeutro Butterscotch Cheesecake
