    Just made my first attempt at dyi...

    Hey guys I just made my first mix with concentrates, it leaves a little to be desired. I used 15ml nic 10ml 0nic and 5ml concentrated red bull.. And it still tastes like nothing? Mind you I vaped it straight away. How long should I steep it for? I'd have thought I would at least taste something straight away.

    That is surprising - with a 16% concentration you should have tasted something. Steeping is a black science and can be up to a week or more but can be accelerated by gentle warming the bottle of mix in hot water. Try vaping with 2mls nico and 2 mls 0 Nic and see what the true taste of nothing is then compare it to the other mixture. Try one of the other concentrates mixing up a small batch and see if that tastes of something. If not trade you tongue in for a new one (only joking).

    It was a fresh clearo and i only took 2 drags as soon as I filled it, so the wick might not have even been properly soaked yet. Can ya tell vaping is new territory for me? Lol

    I frequently mix by eye & guesstimate the %'s of the various ingredients, unless I am mixing a new flavor for the first time, then I try to measure more precisely. When I know the %'s that work best with that flavor, then I just judge the amounts & adjust to taste after a test vape.
    The nic is the only thing I bother to measure properly.
    So I wouldn't worry too much about your DIY mixing method. Redbull flavor, from what I have been told & the one I tried myself is nothing like redbull, more like full-of-bull lol
    Perhaps try a more simple flavor to mix up, like apple or mint to get a better feel for it.
