    Cool Help with mixing

    Hi all,
    Just after some advice please...
    okay so i purchased 12mg of unflavoured nicotine with PG 50% VG 50% and flavoured juice i am trying to find some god mixing quantities.
    After playing around last night i mixed 9ml f unflavoured nicotine to 1ml of flavour seemed okay,but i think it can be better.
    I als think i should have ordered a higher nicotine mg, which i now have put an order in for 32mg ....but for now need help with the 12mg...

    I read on another forum something about mixing it with distilled water? can someone please help me out with some info and ratios...
    Thanks in advance

    um i would avoid the distilled water that is usually for thinning VG juices i think.

    gonna need some more info here though to be able to help. what mg juice are you trying to achieve? what flavour are you mixing it with? is it a doubler/tripler? or a concerntrate? if your unsure provide a link to the page you purchased it from.

    welcome to the forums
    If that doesn't work try a bigger hammer!

    okay i thought it was used to dilute the vg..
    this is my flavours
    Electronic Cigarette flavors, E cigarette flavors, and e flavoring.
    at the moment i am experementing with bubble gum
    and this is my nicotine juice
    236 ml Unflavored Nicotine Juice USA made - Mt Baker Vapor - Electronic Cigarettes
    i have purchased there pre made juices and basically the best one was on a ratio of
    18mg, 50% 50% DOUBLE SHOT (and yes i realize i only bought 12mg lol stupid me!)
    so i am trying to achieve throat hit with being able to taste a flavour.
    I hope this makes sense i am still trying my best to learn it all, but on the plus side it has stopped me and
    my husband from smoking cigarettes
    Thanks for the welcome

    Help with mixing

    Also, I see you have 12mg nic juice.

    How many mg did you want your finished juice to be?
    If you were to mix your 12mg at 50/50% the mixed product would only be 6mg. That 9ml nic plus 1ml flavor would give you 10.8mg

    A good idea is to use a mixing calculator. There is a really good app called ejuice or e-juice that I have on my iPad which is great. Also there are many websites that have mixing calculators.

    Just checked the mt vapor website.
    Mix flavoring at 15-40%

    yes i wanted a higher mg finish probably around 18mg s i have ordered a 32mg for my next lot,
    but for now i will use the 12mg so i wuld want toachieve at least a 10.8 hence the 9-1 ratio i have been creating.
    So just to make sure i understand if i was to put more flavour into my mix say 2m instead of 1m it will just bring down
    my nicotine level?correct?

    Hi Sherree
    Welcome to the forum.
    I think you may need to up your flavour a bit too. 10% is a bit low for MBV flavours. I usually mix at around 20% for them.

    Also, you could try upping your PG, with future mixes. Maybe 80/20, or 75/25. VG will mute flavours a bit, and PG you will find gives a bit more throat hit. You only need to use distilled water if you want to thin out your VG a bit.

    It shouldn't take your new order that long to get here, but in the meantime there is not much you can do, unless you have some menthol or similar, because that can pack a punch to most mixes. But try another ml or so more flavour for now and see if that improves it a bit.

    Can't do much with 12mg nicotine, but you can use it when you have your 36mg (32mg?) and if you mix equal parts of those two you will end up with around 24mg I reckon. I think? Hmm...hope my maths isn't out.

    Good luck.

    Correct.
    I usually buy at least double strength nic juice, and also some plain 0mg VG/PG.

    That way with a calculator you can mix any strength without too much math

    I highly recommend you get yourself the ejuice app. It's free from the App Store.
    Takes all math out of it lol. Just don't measure in drops as suggested by the app, different brands and different bases can vary in drops, always measure with a syringe or pipette.
    Also has a cool recipe forum for mixing your own flavors.


    Heres some screendumps of the app so you can see the GUI

    Cheers
