    Quick question about DIY mixing..

    Hello, I'm new to vaping still waiting on my order to get shipped in for my starter kit. I've been reading here and there on the forums and such and found mixing to be a cheap way for juice.
    I have a few questions to ask about, or just make sure what I'm thinking is on the right track.

    So say I order 120ml of 36mg of flavourless nicotine from rtsvapes in 100% VG
    and then I order a few doublers from vapebar, for example 10ml of wizards brew in 100% PG
    Do I just add 10ml of the nicotine to the doubler and my end result would be
    20ml of wizards brew with a 50/50 PG/VG at 18mg of nicotine?
    How would I go about using the same materials there to get different ratios of PG/VG or lessen the nicotine?
    Do the 10ml doublers come in 20ml bottles?

    Sorry for all the questions!

    OK...

    There is a limit to what you can do with the ratios. These are determined by the VG or PG nic, the PG doubler and what you have to mix.

    Best to use one of the many online calculators to work out the ratios of nic base/doubler/PG/VG.

    some vendors do sell "easy mix" bottles of doubler, which are basically half a bottle of juice for you to add your double strength nic juice to. otherwise, i think every vendor sells empty plastic bottles for mixing and syringes for measuring your juice. i use a medicine glass for some of my measuring.

    the math gets a bit tricky when you start wanting to go from 36mg unflavoured nic juice to say, 15mg juice. there are online calculators that help though (i don't know any of the links). right from the start, I've gotten 100mg/ml unflavoured nicotine, which makes mixing to any level of nic quite easy. it's when it comes to concentrates and stuff that i get a bit mixed up, trying to find the right amount of flavourand the right pg/vg ratio.

    oh, and yes, if you add 10ml of pg doubler to 10ml of 36mg vg nic, you would end up with 20ml 18mg 50/50 juice. so you are on the right track with that

    Its easier to alter the ratio a bit more if you buy 100mg Nic, and a calculator that I use is Filbert's Vaping Toolkit which you can find the link to in this thread

    Keep in mind that 100mg nic needs to be handled properly and kept out of reach of children.

    Best to stick to a lower concentration when starting out.

    This may or may not help. It's a simple excel spreadsheet that will allow you to enter volumes of nic and no-nic juice to give you your final nic content, vg/pg percentage etc..
    It's the same as this one http://sdrv.ms/1bN4jls
