Happy Saturday, AU,
Not to make you crazy, but the reason I went through all those girations of trying to find how the FLV (specifically to FLV) percents work is twofold (and please read all of this).
1.) Smoky told me to start low with Irish Cream (FLV). She said to start with 0.12%, so I had to find the Total #ml that 0.12% would be of, allowing me to start a little lower and work my way up. 0.12% is 2x 0.06%, so I had to find what Total #ml works with 0.06% for 1 drop so I could work with multiples of that. 0.06% of 33.3333ml = 0.02ml for 1 even drop of Irish Cream (FLV).
If the #ml percentages that I posted before are right and the #gram percentages are wrong (as I think is the case), then 0.12% would be 2 drops of Irish Cream (FLV) in 33.29333ml, and 0.06% would be 1 drop in 33.31333ml. This means that using 1 drop in 10ml of VG, 20ml, or even 30ml would always be over or under 0.06% and 0.12%. A total mix of 33.33333ml is where I found things to work accurately for drops of Irish Cream (FLV) and Smoky's recommendation.
2.) I needed to know how the percentages are derived and to know what size batches to make for accurate mixes.
Then I wanted to know (asking you) if I can start with the calculated weight of a percentage of VG (average 1.265g/ml) to get close to the actual ml percentage that I need to make the number of FLV drops work out fairly accurately by adding the FLV drops last. I know that's the opposite of how you add your drops, but it'll work out in the shaking and steeping process. That way, with the #ml of VG in first, the scale would be more accurate with the number of drops of Irish Cream (FLV) when it's time to make batches of various sizes. Smoky only uses FLV, and that is my goal, so my math is related to only FLV here. Other flavoring brands would require their own testing procedures.
The weight of 33.31333ml of VG would be 33.31333 times 1.265g = 42.14136g. After getting close to let's say 30ml of VG (or 37.95000g), then by adding the VG in drops I could get closer to obtaining 42.14136g than I could accurately measure 33.31333ml in a cylinder. To me, we either work with the math or we just fumble around with what might work, only to be disappointed with the results. Smoky says that most people overuse FLV because they are Ultras, so I'm trying to work with that and be accurate.
Do you think that adding the calculated weight of VG in the bottle first, then adding the evenly calculated number of drops of FLV would work correctly for Solo Flavor Testing? If not, then where do the accurate percentage numbers come from?
This from Alex Clark of CASAA in email today...
We’ve never done anything like this before…
All things considered, CASAA has had a good run. Since our inception in 2009, we’ve helped elevate the voice of consumers to a degree that top officials at the Food and Drug Administration make public statements acknowledging the benefits of vaping and other smoke-free alternatives. We need your help to keep this energy going.
As you well know, CASAA membership is free. We provide all of our services and information to the public without asking for much in return. We don’t sell our members’ data and we don’t put up paywalls. We rely 100% on voluntary donations. So when we tell you that we’ve seen an almost 40% decline in donations over the past year, understand that it means our ability to continue providing information and services is in grave danger.
The truth is, if every person who read this post donated just $2.00, we’d have the funding we need to stay operational for the rest of the year. If even half of those people signed up for monthly $2.00 donations, our operating costs would be covered, and we could start implementing plans for expansion.
What would expansions look like for CASAA?
- Let’s get some real lobbying power. Lobbying firms are expensive and for years consumers have been left to rely on industry associations to provide lobbying resources such as access to lawmakers and even seats at public hearings. We need our own voice in legislatures and we need to pay for it on our own.
- Expanded Programs. Prepping for spoken testimony, educational materials for lawmakers, and PR campaigns all require up-front investment of money and people power. More funding = more staff and more opportunities to reach people outside of the vaping community.
- Sustained defense against enduring threats. Just because the FDA is promising to crack down on non-compliant manufacturers after September 9, 2020, doesn’t mean that our fight is over. Anti-nicotine idealogues are pressuring all levels of government to enact stricter laws that are creating new problems and we need to be equipped to respond as well as proactively fix existing bad policies.
I know it might sound weird to say that after ten years CASAA is just getting started, but looking at it from a historical perspective we know that movements like this can take generations just to hit their stride.
Looking to the future, we know that there is already a mountain of bad policies that we need to tear down. We’re having that conversation today about issues involving race, law enforcement, and healthcare, so the time is ripe to broaden the discussion and include tobacco and substance use policies that require reform.
I hope it’s becoming clear that consumers are the number one stakeholder in the debate about tobacco harm reduction. While we can reasonably expect industry stakeholders to defend their businesses, the responsibility for standing up against discriminatory policies and ethical breaches among researchers falls at the feet of people who use nicotine. There is no one there to protect us and many who claim that they have our best health in mind are almost eager to dismiss us when we point out the consequences of their “protection.” We have to support ourselves and build our own movement.
Now more than ever, consumer support of harm reduction strategies is vital to improving public health and preventing expansion of the war on drugs to target people who use nicotine.
Thank you for all that you do,
P.S. Donate $2.00 today and help fund our efforts into 2021. Make your gift a monthly donation and help us grow our operations into the next decade.

I've been most of the day figuring out how to make a Spreadsheet in Excel for Pdrum's new e-liquids (saying "Pdrum's juices" sounds like I've been baking him in an over like a turkey on Thanksgiving ) and finally got it done after some research for the formulas needed. The =ROUNDUP one was tricky, and then I had to keep up with the way I did it in the first one. I'm frazzled.
The only flavoring that DIY Vapor Supply is out of is Flavorah Vanilla Pudding (in light blue above), so I'm waiting to order anything until that one comes in. I'ma ask them if I can order and pay for everything, plus whatever S&H, and have them hold the box for me until the Flavorah Vanilla Pudding comes in. They've been out for at lest 3 days now, but I think it's more like 4-5. The #VALUE! is there in the Order column because the formula fails w/o the Flavorah Vanilla Pudding bottle size prices and quantities of which to buy. And Flavorah Sweetness is used at the same percentage twice, so I have a note to check for higher quantity savings.
Greg came by with the part he bought me from the salvage yard for my car. Just the dome light cover and a bulb, but that was nice of him. I finally got him to take all of his computers and the bad and box of parts. And he paid me 2/3 of the bill, so that'll help.
Now to ask DIY Vapor Supply when Flavorah Vanilla Pudding might be in and to see if I can pay for it all and get it later.
Got this in a CASAA email today. I'm gonna be there!...
On Friday, October 11, The White House is expected to make an announcement regarding the FDA regulations of vapor products. We are anticipating this announcement to include the agency’s plans for regulating flavored vapor products other than tobacco.
Following this announcement, later in the evening, Donald Trump will be holding a rally at the Lake Charles Civic Center.
Show Donald Trump that #WeVapeWeVote
Friday, October 11, 2019
(Facebook Event Page - RSVP)
Lake Charles Civic Center
Lake Charles, Louisiana
(Trump Rally Registration)
Details and instructions from the event page:
“Come out Friday (meet at the center of the circle loop drive) to show that nicotine vaping rights are important to you. Grab a poster board and make your signs. I VAPE I VOTE FLAVORS SAVES LIVES, ect... This event is open to EVERYONE WHO VAPES. All vape shop owners, employees, and customers. If you vape then stand with us. This event is CIVIL. NO ACTING OUT, YELLING, ARGUING, CURSING, BLOWING GIANT CLOUDS IN FRONT OF MEDIA, ect... Please dress appropriately. How they see us is how we will be treated. Please direct any media interviews to a coordinator if you are a consumer. (If the front drive is blocked off our second meet point is the Sea Wall by the 9/11 Memorial).”
Please note: This is not an event organized by CASAA. Although we are coordinating with the event organizer for the purposes of informing our members in Louisiana, we cannot confirm that proper permitting or other logistical considerations are in place. That having been said, avoiding verbal or physical conflict with authorities or bystanders is always a good precaution to take.
Tips for participating in a peaceful demonstration:
- Simple clear messages that communicate your story at a glance are best.
- Be respectful of people on the sidewalks and walking in and out of buildings.
- Keep vaping discrete.
- Dress appropriately (it might rain).
- Be prepared to speak to the media (sharing your story about switching to vaping should be enough and refer reporters to event coordinators for more in depth comments).
