    Spring is here, so the calendar says, yet Mother Nature is putting up a fight.....UFC style. :pop:

    First, I'm a wee bit sad :cry:....what a process to go through to give some things away! Ultimate PIF protection!
    It took me 15 min just to read through it! I'll put that on hold for now.

    Secondly, from what I've heard juice should not be used beyond a year. Is there anyway to know if it's bad? Or just toss it, without taking a risk?

    Have a great weekend :)

    For DIY purposes, nic juice can be frozen. Not sure about the finished product, though.

    Thanks for the tip Retired 1. :)

    I found several varied posts, one year, two year etc. I will link some interesting reads here for anyone with the same questions:
    Smoke Juice Storage
    Long term storage of concentrated nic

    I'm under the impression storage and shelf life of unmixed ingredients is much different than mixed due to the chemical composition of the flavouring.

    I think I'll stick with the one year rule. I bought some 50/50 juice on sale last year, I can't vape it.
    I hid it in a dark, cool place so well, I forgot about it. :shock:

    It's a rare thing juice lasts that long around here.

    I've read the more popular answer is 1 year, but that would also depend on your taste buds I suppose. Also some liquid I get does have a best by date on them so going by that 1 year it is for me. When I recieve my liquids I date them for future reference. I also store all my liquids in the fridge, except what I'm currently Vapeing which is about 4-5 flavors.

    I have liquids that are way over 1 yr old and they are the same as the day I got them...stored in a plastic bin besides my computer chair (away from sunlight but not from ambient heat/cold)

    Heh,I even refilled a Kayfun with some licorice whisp (black licorice) I got from gentlemen reserve like 1.5 yrs ago...been vaping this for 2 days now (thinking the juice is getting on the old side so better to vape the remaining of the bottle) and its still the very same...delicious.
