    Making a flavoured nicotine mix?

    Hey guys, just got into the vaping. Have ordered a lot of gear and it's on the way.

    Just need to know the basics of mixing my own flavoured nicotine liquid.

    Can someone tell me if this is right to make 10ml of 12mg flavoured nicotine with approximately 50/50 PG/VG

    5ml of doubled apple flavour 80% PG from VM
    5ml of "unflavoured" nicotine 100% VG from HC

    If I wanted to make it 40/60 PG/VG

    4ml of doubled apple flavour 80% PG from VM
    6ml of unflavoured nicotine 100% VG from HC

    If I am totally wrong please let me know, thanks guys!

    Hi there K .. you havent specified at what % your nicotine unflavoured base is , so we wont know if your mixes are correct or not to yield 12mg
    if your unflavoured nic is 24mg your first mix will be right , but your second mix will yield 14.4 mg
    If your nic is not 24mg , then it will be totally different

    You are right to ask advice before experimenting it save a few headaches ... literally !

    regarding the PG and VG mix ... I may be wrong , but if the doublers are 80% PG , this would mean they have around 20% VG already in them ( the actual flavouring is a minute amount ) you would need to check this with the manufacturer to confirm the exact mix base in the doublers , but you will have to take that into account too .

    Hello Special K. The maths are easy - if you want 12mg juice (i.e 12 mg per ml of juice) and making 10ml you need to have 120mg of nicotine in the juice. If your nicotine base juice is 36mg then you need 120/36 = 3.33 ml of nicotine unflavoured and 6.67 ml of flavour and plain VG or PG. In your case 5ml of that would be the doubler apple and the remaining will be plain VG or PG. The exact ration of PG to VG is not really that vital. It is easier to buy the flavour in PG and then use VG nicotine and plain VG to make up the VG component. In the above case if your nicotine is 100mg then the maths are 120mg/100 = 1.2 ml of nicotine and then the rest flavour and plain VG. Or if you are not happy with the maths get one of the many ejuice calculators around.

    I find the easiest way to get whatever nic level and pg/vg ratio you want is to :
    a. buy unflavoured VG nic and plain VG : RTS VAPES Liquid Nicotine (they also sell VG and PG )( you could buy 48mg VG nic and just cut that with plain VG for 24mg) and 100% PG doublers
    b. mix your unflavoured nic and VG to double the required strength(for 12mg final product: mix nic and VG to 24mg)
    c. 10ml of ready to vape 12mg is then produced by mixing 5ml doubler and 5ml pre-prepared nic :vg/pg ratio is then 50/50
    try these calculators for mixing..they are pretty good

    I thought I would not need plain VG since the unflavoured nicotine is 100% VG..

    Feels like I'm back in high school doing chemistry.. HATE IT

    Hi k, given your unflavoured nicotine is 24mg/ml, mixing it in this ratio will indeed give you 12mg/ml, but instead of getting 50PG/50VG, you'll end up with 40PG60VG.

    No problem, with that Will give more vapour at the expense of a small drop in flavour and throat hit, but it'll be smooth

    Cheers

    Well I'll keep it like that then, nice and easy.

    As long as I can blow a thickish cloud and it taste okay, I'm happy

    Thanks

    Meh, I'd get some apple concentrate flavor & mix with plain PG & VG to make juice.
    5ml 24mg nic unflavored in PG or VG
    1ml - 2ml HC green apple concentrate = 10% -20% flavor (count flavor concentrate as PG in the PG/VG ratio)
    3 ml - 4ml PG &/or VG, 3ml with 20% flavor 4ml with 10% flavor

    So if you want 60 % VG in the above example, you would use 24mg 100%VG nic, 1ml of VG & 2ml-3ml of PG + flavor.

    Much easier to get the flavor% & the PG/VG ratio precise when mixing your own with concentrates.
