    Noob mixing questions

    I have some doublers and wanted to dilute them a little.
    The doublers are 50/50 PGVG aand i mix them 50/50 with 100%PG nic.

    I feel they need to be diluted a little more before adding nic as the flavour is still very strong.
    Would i just dilute them with more 50/50 VGPG non nic and then add the nic to that?

    Also someone mentioned a few drops of malt vinegar added to juice could dull the taste a little but I cant remember how much they said to add

    Yep dilute your doublers down first with pg, vg or a combination of both. Then do your 50/50 mix with nic liquid.

    What strength nic are you using vapeman ?
    Usually VG mutes the flavour somewhat so you could dilute with a little of that
    And welcome here too

    The doublers are double strength flavours, intended to be mixed with double your required strength nicotine to give the intended flavour and nicotine dilution. Usually you buy them at the PG/VG mix thatI you like to vape at for ease of mixing.

    If you are finding them too strong after diluting with your nicotine, the simplest thing to then do is add some PG/VG with your required nicotine level to reduce the flavour but maintain the same nicotine concentration.

    If you intend to go down the double route it would be best to keep a bottle of PG/VG at twice your required nicotine for the first dilution, and a bottle of PG/VG at the exact level you require for further dilution. This way you only need to keep track of your flavour dilution - your nicotine dilution will always be as intended.

    When you do the dilutions for double strength nicotine and actual strength nicotine make sure you label the bottles clearly so they can not be confused.

    Did you know that you can also vape the actual strength nicotine with no flavouring as well? This can be useful if you are suffering from flavour fatigue (everything tastes yuck, or all the same) and also to eliminate flavourings from the mix if you want to see if something in the flavourings is causing a problem like sensitivity, allergy, or soreness.

    I wouldn't recommend the use of vinegar for an overly strong flavour when dilution is the most likely good solution. Vinegar at about 2-5 drops per 10ml changes the acidity of the liquid and can accentuate some flavours while bleaching others. A possible use is to reduce the sweetness of a liquid that you don't want to otherwise dilute.

    Maybe look at getting 50/50 nic next time as vg can dilute flavour/hit just a bit. try adding approximately 5-10% vg to your bottle should be sufficient

    So far only about $1200 spent on vapeing
