Seal the bottle, shake the hell out of it and throw it in a cool dark place (a drawer in my study desk) for at least a week then vape away. If I think of it I might give it a shake every couple of days but thats it. Everything needs to mix and the flavours need to go through the mixture, this takes time. The flavours will mix and mature with or without the nic in the mixture, the nic itself does not require steeping time, the flavours do and the easiest time to add the nic is when you make up the mixture.
    Hope thats a little clearer.
    Note to self, no drinking and posting in future.....
    Sealing the bottle isn't the best way to let the juice steep.
    Proper steeping requires air or oxygen to allow the juice to "breathe", certainly shaking the hell out of it is good but after you have you should remove the lid then put it away in a dark place for a week, you'd get better results.

    As for nicotine, if you are vaping zero mg ejuice, then you aren't going to get as much change as quickly from steeping, the steep will take longer IME, when you add the nicotine it speeds the steeping process up a little & helps the flavors to "age" better, both flavor & nicotine should be added at the same time. Nicotine itself does not steep, this is true but it helps facilitate flavors to steep.

    Edit: Just saw this is an old thread but now that it's been bumped & it's in the newbie section, I think it is good that the info has been posted

    I have been experimenting with Ultrasonic steeping and have found most flavors work well after being zapped between 1-2 hours with a breathing space with the cap off and letting the juice breath between zaps. Eg: I mixed a batch of U4EA Coffee Mocca @ 10% 70VG and 30pg. I zapped it for one hour. Let it cool down to room temp and then zapped it for another hour. Then I let it stand over night with a cheese cloth over the top of the bottle with a rubber band. The next day it was right to vape.

    Caution if you use UC method do not zap your juice in plastic bottles, some plastics do react to UC. I use glass only a small beaker and again cover it with a cheese cloth.
    Lest in self defence it be,
    Harm you none,
    So may it be!
