    The 3 TS anywhere near me only carry PG, for use with cattle. The Rural King stores here only have the PG, too. I wonder why your store carries VG. There must be some use for it with livestock or pets though.

    About the 1st Time I ever bought VG (late 2010) was in a CVS Pharmacy.

    While I was in line, a very Nice Asian Lady behind me saw the Bottle of VG in my basket and told me that Vegetable Glycerin was good for Dry Skin and Chapped Lips. She also said that it will make your Hair Very Shinny.

    And she had Very Shinny Hair.

    I bought my first bottle of it at Walmart for $3 and change (168mL of HUMCO brand) in winter 2015. Clerk there assumed I was getting it for dry skin relief. I didn't volunteer that it was for DIY eliquid. ;)

    Since you're in Ohio, and so is Bulk Apothecary...you might want to try their PG & VG sometime. Essential Depot is in FL, only about 60 miles or so from me, and S/H from them to me is always more than S/H from BA in Ohio to me.

    Dood, I'm trying some. In the grey hair. I've been using this expensive keratin spray (grey hair is like impossible to corral) but if VG works better, well, I'm all for it.

    The question is.... How much. And also I will need to not make my first experiment with it Monday.

    Yeah but if it tastes like the other VG I've had that would be 7 gallon and 50 ounces in the trash.

    Bull City Flavors. 25 bucks for a gallon of VG. Never tasted anything other than nothing.

    I always experiment with an open mind.

    The VG from Nicotine River arrived and I made my first batches. It is a very mellow mild taste better than my Mountain Rose Herbs. Combined with the Nicotine River Smooth Nic Salts, I've made my best batch of Nic ever. And the price of the VG is very reasonable

    From the forum I figured out what went wrong. I've been buying my Nic from MFS. There stuff is harsh.

    Excellent, glad you like it. The only thing left to do is figure out how to spend the $75/per gallon savings. :D

    The only reason I rated your post as 'funny' is because MFS was the first vendor I used for my supplies. And it was so, so awful! I had never vaped unflavored before that and didn't try it for at least a year afterwards. Finally, I tried unflavored using a different nic/PG/VG and couldn't believe how good it was.

    All my stuff from MFS is going down the toilet. My new batches are so clean can't stand the idea of vaping their swill. Life is too short!

    There's absolutely NOTHING wrong with vaping clean unflavored juice. It's my ADV.

    If you have to add flavoring to cover up the 'taste' of unflavored, you are definitely not using quality materials. :thumb:

    Do you all use the nic river pur or the chemnovatic for your freebase nic?

    Thanks

    :)

    I have never tried Nic River's Pure. But I have been using Chemnovatic for the Last 2 months or so.

    Here is a Mini-Review of it as compared to CNT Brand Nicotine...

    That's a great idea! I found a couple local DIYers who were very happy to get the MFS nic base that I'd bought. Since they only make tobacco eliquids....they loved the pepperyness or harshness of it, that I hated.

    Yeah... Fruit Recipes are probably better served with a Very Clean, almost Tasteless Nicotine Base.

    But a Tobacco or a "Brown Flavor" might actually Benefit from an Oxidized / Slightly Peppery Nic Base.
