    The Nitecore may be a tad overkill and overpriced for what's needed. Homebrew's digital stirplate is sufficient for half the price. Their kit is also only $60. I've used one a lot as I do a lot of mixing. Helps with the steep/blending or when you need to test a batch without waiting. The big issue with these devices is heat and airation; two no no's. These can be avoided though. Cover the beaker or bottle and don't apply heat.

    If you mix more than 3 or 4 bottles or large bases per day, grab one. Otherwise, give your wrist a good workout.

    Yeah, I was watching a youtube vid where these pro juice mixers were asked about the stirrers and various equipment that can be used at home, they said you only gain a couple of days with them, and it doesnt replace steeping.

    IMHO nothing replaces steeping, or homogenising as it really is. However, if one needs to get a fairly good idea of what a mix will be like, this helps a lot. A vortex machine is another option.

    I guess.. I am a newbie at mixing from scratch- in the past my efforts were confined to dumping some flavour to pre bought juice to make it vapeable.
    So I am really enjoying this thread, thanks everyone.

    I agree, air and heat are not really wanted, and there is no substitute for time........however.......

    I find my magnetic stirrer, if not turned up to fast, introduces less air than a vigorous shake.......and.....

    The effect of heat is proportional to the amount of heat. I heat my liquid, while stirring, only to about 45-50 degrees, which is not much different to mixing on a really hot day. Warming up the mix loosens up the VG making the mixer more efficient and making it easier to pour, it also "kick starts" the steeping process. I also only stir for 5-10 minutes, basically as long as it takes to mix the next batch to go on the stirrer.........and....

    I don't have to shake it!

    Personally I am a convert to Ultrasonic Steeping and having juice ready in 3-4 days is a Godsend. I use one with a heater and timer and steep mine about three to four 20 min cycles at about 40C and let it cool to room temp and breath between cycles. I found my Ultasonic gizmo on ebay. I bought the two litre job and find it more than adequate.


    I found mine here
    Lest in self defence it be,
    Harm you none,
    So may it be!
