  1. I'm fairly new to this and still exploring the options with e-cigs. Ive been reading a lot about how you can save a good amount of money by just making your own liquid. I was just wondering if there is a how-to guide on how to do it or if anyone could just give some insight on what options are out there and how they do it.

    Get 5 post in the new members forum then go post here: DIY E-Liquid

    There's lots of good info to read there too.

    The mods will probably just move a thread here to the DIY section anyway. :)

    Best Place to start. DIY E-Liquid . This is where I began my search. There are thousands of dedicated DiY mixers just waiting to share their knowledge. Jump Over and begin browsing. Good Luck.

    Fist thing is do a lot of homework. Nicotine can be dangerous. Get eye protection, a couple of kinds of measuring methods like a 1,5,10 cc syringe with a blunt needle works for me.
    Here is a web site that has a damn good calculator. They have recipes and a good calculator to download.
    eJuice Recipe Downloads
    There are bunch of suppliers on here that sell the nicotine, PG,VG etc.
    Go to the DIY liquid area and read the sticky notes.
    When you start I would suggest using a tested recipe and then go from there.
    Things to remember, Clean up very good, Don't leave the spills around. Wear gloves if you are working with like 100mg nicotine base. Wear the eye protection. I rubbed my eye once and had some juice on it and I will never forget that.
    There is an online calculator also: eJuice Recipe Calculator
    In the DIY/Recipe area there are a ton of recipes.
    I'm a relative newbie so I will leave it to the others for more and better advice.
    Welcome aboard.
  6. I apologize that i didn't look ahead of time how often this was asked. I appreciate the help! I just need to do research before i jump into it.

    That's a good Readers Digest version. Tattoo it on your brain if you are new
    to DIY.

    I would add one thing (I'm still trying to tattoo this one on MY brain):

    Start very low on the percentages of flavorings.

    I have a baker's dozen bottles steeping for weeks upon weeks right now because
    I added too much flavoring - even when I was following someone else's advice/recipe.

    It depends on where you get them as to how much flavoring to use, but a good rule
    of thumb is to start of around 2 or 3 percent, and certainly not more than five. You
    may have to add more, but if you add to much of too many things the first time, it
    will be hard to fix. Which brings up one more rule:

    Start with single flavor recipes until you get used to DIYing. Then you can roll up
    your creative sleeves and go to work on your Van Gogh.

    1. Read the stickies in the DIY forum. It is a must before starting.

    2. Read Hoosier's blogs: E-Cigarette Forum - Hoosier - Blogs, Not mandatory, but you will have a better starting experience if you do.

    Then jump in to the DIY forum with any questions that you have!
