    I jumped right into mixing my own liquids and am wondering should I use hot tap water or freshly boiled water to steep. I hear each flavor has its own steeping time so they wont all be the same. Also does it matter your ratio when steeping?

    Ratio is decided while you are making the juice. Hot tap water is fine for steeping. Are you using a recipe or just a dab here and a dab there?

    If you need a good juice calculator try this. Tobacco mixes usually require the most steeping time.

    I used a fresh kettle of boiled water. I noticed it feels a little smoother but the smell is stronger than the taste. Is there an easy way to tell when something has been steeped properly? Or by how I described it would that be the ideal steeped.
