    mixing from doublers - do they need to steep

    Hi,

    I'm waiting for my concentrate mixes to steep. Do doublers need to steep because I want to speed up the process while I wait?

    What steeping process do you follow?

    Depends upon the flavours and mix.

    I find VG heavy mixes require long steeping, I use time to steep my juice.

    Yes, doublers need to steep. I just leave it alone but force steeping used to be very popular - mostly putting it in an ultrasonic cleaner at elevated temperatures. Some people recommended exposure to air (oxygen) but I've never thought that was the right way. Technically it's really "ageing" and as with any similar process I think you are better off letting nature take its course.

    Some do, some don't, complex flavours yes. Tried a lot of processes but now it's 2 days near the kitchen window except for hot weather. Don't know why but it works for me.
