    1st time mixing question

    Hi guys/gals,

    I just received a 5ml sample doubler Zero Nicotine. 80%PG/20%VG blend in a 10ml bottle.

    I have some 100mg nicotine.

    So how many ml of this nicotine do I put in the bottle to achieve 18mg strength?

    Cheers
    Phoenix

    easy ..


    nic portion
    5*0 + X*100 = Y*18 .. so 100X = 18Y

    qtys total

    5+X = Y

    100X = 18*(5+X)

    100X = 90 + 18X

    82X = 90

    X = 1.09ml

    so add 1.09ml and you will make 6.09ml of 18mg

    your 5ml sample doubler will make 10ml of juice. to get 18mg nic in 10ml of juice, you need to add 1.8ml of 100mg/ml nic. you will then have to add 3.2ml of pg and/or vg to make it up to 10ml altogether

    Phoenix, do you have any PG and VG?

    Is your nicotine PG or VG base or a mixture of the two?

    mrsgruffy it's 100mg nicotine PG

    I don't have any plain PG or VG. Now I'm confused...do I need some?

    What I suggest you do is order a bottle each of PG and VG from one of our vendors.
    If you just mix your nicotine with your doubler, it's going to most likely be too strong.
    When flavours are too strong, you'll notice they have an unpleasant, perfumey flavour.
    More is not always better when it comes to flavours.

    Once you get your VG and PG, I suggest you mix your nicotine down to 36mg.
    To keep it at a 80:20 PG:VG ratio (which is pretty good to start with),
    For every 10 ml of nicotine liquid, you'll need the following:

    3.6 mL of your PG 100mg/mL nicotine.
    2 mL of VG
    4.4 mL of PG

    That works if your doubler flavours are 80:20 PG:VG

    Once you make up the 36mg nicotine liquid with the recipe above (you can make more than 10 mL, just multiply accordingly)
    You can just top up the 5mL bottle with 5mL of your nicotine liquid.

    Be sure to label all your bottles so you know what you have.. you don't want to add 100mg nicotine as a doubler by accident.

    Your 5 mL of flavour doubler, will be 10 mL of flavoured eliquid which is 18mg/mL in a ratio of 80:20 PG:VG.
    If you're confused about any of this.. please ask more questions.

    100X = 18*(5+X)

    100X = 90 + 18X

    82X = 90

    X = 1.09ml

    so add 1.09ml and you will make 6.09ml of 18mg
    But wouldn't that be too strong in terms of flavour, when it is meant to have an equal amount of nic put into it?

    Phoenix, you can also throw in a bit of straight PG/VG if the flavour is too strong, once you add your nic. It will also give you a bit more juice, if you want to take it up to 10ml, which would mean you would be adding an extra 3ml of PG/VG in there.

    If you are going to vape at 18mg, and have 100mg now, it would probably be a better idea to cut it first, and it will make mixing a bit easier. When I first started I bought 36mg and cut it in half. Then I realised the 100mg was cheaper, so bought that and simply cut it 1:5, so it gave me 20mg instead of 18mg. Just to keep it metric and easy.

    Hope this helps.
