    Has anyone come across a problem with the taste of a liquid being bad until shaken?? I have some menthol that is nasty (before shaking). After a good shaking it is wonderful. Any thoughts?? Do you think i could heat it then shake it to avoid shaking every time i use it?? Thanks in advance!

    I have. One of my first experiences with E-liquid was that the taste completely disappeared when I hit the half-way mark of the bottle. All I could think of was that I never shook the bottle before using.

    Ah, somebody will come along with theories on specific gravity, age, nicotine content, atomizer discrepancies, etc.

    Not that it is undesirable, actually could be helpful, but...
    All of us have seen some amazingly intense arguments on this, and other forums, about some really minuscule points, counter points. I learn a lot, laugh alot, and sometimes just shake my head in disbelief.
    That's what makes forums interesting, though.

    :lol: I saw that when I typed it! You're right, no doubt this will blossom into a techno weenie discussion of the viscosity of e-liquid bases and gravity. Just to further complicate things, I've actually had two bottles of e-liquid turn flavorless on me. I don't know why but I'll be the first to admit my taste buds are still half-fried from analog smoking. I am remiss about shaking bottles before using but we can safely rule out storage in extreme hot/cold/direct sunlight issues.

    LOL... I'll add this: I've had flavors disappear while vaping them! Starts off nice and strong... then about 5 or 6 puffs in, I can't taste it anymore.

    mace & chain.

    The glass dropper goes to the bottom of the bottle.

    When you extract the liquid you are usually taking from the bottom or I do as I stick the dropper all the way in.

    I empty the dropper and shake 2 or 3 times, before I decant in to a smaller bottle.

    I also shake the small bottle before I top off .

    Never had any problems with hit or flavour consistency caused by the liquid.

    Well I think the flavor changes from morning till later in the day. Just kidding. LOL I have noticed a diff as the bottle gets emptier. But then I just figure it's me getting old. I blame everything on that. That and the fact I had kids. It's all their fault!!!!

    It wouldn`t surprise me that eliquid should be shaken before use. I know when I have made my own and poured PG into flavourless the PG will sit on top to begin with until I shake it.

    I only get the shakes when I am out of E-Liquid.

    The best thing to do is to drink allot of water, and avoid eating or drinking things that contain sugar. I do this and my flavors taste great, all the time.

    Holy Resurrected Thread Batman! I've actually had flavors completely disappear while I'm in the process of vaping them too. I'll try no food, no sugary drinks and see if that helps. Thanks for the tip.

    Over the edge...
    Sure, shake it. But how do you shake a bottle that's almost full? Easy. Make sure the cap is on tightly, grab the bottle by the cap and turn it bottoms up. Repeat a few more times and it will be about as mixed as it's going to get. Try it holding it up to a light (your monitor, maybe?) and you'll be able to see it mix.
