    Protect it from light at least - store it in a cupboard.

    It's unclear whether refrigeration would be beneficial to flavourings, and it probably depends on what flavours. Freezing might be as damaging to some as heat is to others. For example freezing WS-3 coolant would almost certain caused it to crystalise out. Not completely disastrous but certainly inconvenient.

    Personally I haven't found any but a very few flavourings that age badly. They might have some colour, but still work perfectly fine. If you haven't used it in two years, then you don't like it well enough to worry about it anyway (chuck it out).

    The problem kind of crystalises itself - Freezing seems inadvisable, and refrigeration is only convenient if you have a smaller number of flavours. I'd need to take up at least one shelf in the fridge, and I can just imaging Mrs Fabs response to that scenario. It might be about time to take my own advice, and chuck some stuff out... but, but, I'm a flavour magpie.

    I ran out of real estate in my fridge so had to do the inevitable...buy a bar fridge.

    I've now got all my favourite recipes(about 20) stored in flavour packs. When I go to mix up say, the Cuttwood Unicorn Milk clone, I just reach for the Unicorn container and all the flavourings are there and ready to go.

    It's still a whole lot cheaper than smoking.

    I rarely vape more than 100mls of anything other than my four year ADV so I'm a bit wary of mixing too much of anything. The ADV though gets mixed in 250ml batches, that's about it. Mostly, the rest gets 30ml batches because I never know when I'll move on to something else.

    Have you posted your adv recipe Fab4 or, when you go, it goes too? I'd be interested to know

    I dont know if it helps but I keep mine in the fridge - mostly just a stockpile of one concentrate. they all look the same as the day I bought them. I tend to think in the height of summer it would help keep them at their best.
