    Over Steeping??

    I prefer to let my juices steep for 2 weeks minimum. I had about 15 bottles of doublers, and last Friday I got tired of my laziness, which usually led me to running out of "steeped and ready to go" juices.

    So I decided to spend a half hour preparing all of them. But 15 x 30mL bottles of juices will last me quite a while. I'd hate to pick up one of my bottles in months to come and find that the flavour had dissipated, or the nicotine has degraded and the throat hit is less than preffered.

    Is there a possibility of leaving your juices too long that you over steep them, or can the nicotine-flavour-PG mixes last for quite a while?

    I have some stuff that has steeped for over 2 years it is RY4 and it tastes the same now as it did fresh. Like shit.

    How was the throat hit though? Was the nicotine degraded?

    Shit is shit = ry4.

    It is just me as I hate the stuff.

    Steeping makes sense but only so far as to let the ingredients blend.

    After that period, whatever that is, I think that they tend to stay the same.

    But I guess different stuff takes different times but I tend to vape the mix straight away and let it infuse while I am vaping the fresh mix and really don't find that much difference.

    I am probably rather crass.

    I'm new to vaping. I just read that ry4 was the most popular flavour, so I've been vaping it. It's not bad. Personally I prefer the straight tobaccos with nothing added. But the Djarum ones like Del's Kretek from juicewhore aren't too bad if you let it steep for a few weeks, or else it tastes like ladies perfume.

    I've heard the best one's you can only get in the US, but importing from the US is really expensive. $30 to $40 bucks shipping. Man, I get buy 4 x 30 mL doublers for that money. I've tried a few Halo ecig juices. Their Torque56 is really good, but you can only get premixed bottles.

    What are the best vape flavours that I can can get in Australia?

    The yanks always say that the best you can get is produced in the good old US of A.

    I prefer China any day.

    The Aussie ones can be good though, but there is some real shit as well.

    Up to you really.

    Dekang flavours or e-cig.com? Some of the e-cig.com cigar and pipe flavours taste like urinal cakes. Their ciggarette tobaccos are ok, but I've had better.

    Flavor is all subjective, mostly.
    If you want to get good flavor & be able to adjust it to your own taste, then I suggest try mixing your own from flavor concentrates.
    HealthCabin has over 200 different flavors to choose from, they are cheap & I find most of them are very good. There are a few dud flavors, I don't like but all their fruit flavors, with 1 exception, I have tried are either excellent or good.
    The one exception being blueberry , which is vapable but has a bit of a chemical after taste to it, although blended with other flavors it can be very nice.
    As for their tobacco flavors, I can't say, since I haven't tried them.
    I get unflavored 36mg nic juice, flavor concentrate, PG & VG & mix my own 18mg juice up, it isn't hard at all.

    Edit: nic will start to degrade after about 2 years in storage but that can be prolonged by storing your juice in the freezer, since PG doesn't freeze I store my nic juice , which is 100% PG base in the freezer.
