    Peppery taste after speed steeping. What did I do?

    Hi all..

    I've recently purchased some flavoured ready to vape ejuice and some nic from 2 separate and reputable suppliers but this is the first time I've tried them as I've had a 2 year relapse.

    Using my previous knowledge of mixing I've gone through these steps..

    - Added nic
    - Shaken
    - Quick hot bath (from hot water tap, not boiled)
    - Shaken
    - Left uncapped for 20 hours
    - Shaken
    - Tasted

    My end product is coming out different to anything I've ever witnessed before as it gives a very peppery taste which almost overpowers any of the flavour. My first thought was the nic is bad or turned during transit. Another thought was perhaps my warm bath and air out has turned the nic myself.

    Upon speaking to the vendor who supplied the nic, they've reassured me that they never store it for longer than a week and in a freezer. So I've ruled out a few issues here.

    Can anyone weigh in on their experience and perhaps confirm if I have actually killed my fresh juices myself? Thanks in advance

    It probably will calm down somewhat, over the next week or two, but sounds like you definitely have some peppery nic there. Can we get some hints on who the suppliers are? They may be northern hemisphere ( hot summer ), or they may not be as reputable as you think, or at least as they may have once been. I like the slight peppery zing of my nic, but of course there is a limit where I would say no, that is crap.

    Well that sounds like a disappointing mixing session - not a fan of peppery myself , I would suggest shake shake and then shake some more - maybe wrap the bottles in bubble wrap and plastic bags, put them in the glovebox of the car and go for a long drive over rough roads.. !

    did you double check your math in adding the nic ? e-Liquid Calculator :: STOP

    maybe as Moose says all you need is a few days of steeping for it to settle, I general mix, add nic and let things sort them selves out over a week or two

    in the meantime - if anxious about waiting for steeping times, and keen to avoid the stinkies, these days you can in fact purchase ready to vape ejuice with Nic from New Zealand, takes a few days to east coast Aus. Wick and Wire have NZ operation as do VapourEyes and as well as Mixology Vape NZ and a few other will supply Aus at reasonable postage costs - and they are well shaken when they arrive

    First thing to do is to mix up some unflavoured.

    This will rule out any sensitivity you may have to the flavorings.
