    Howdy. I am going to try my hand at mixing, sort of. I ordered the one shot variety. I think I have the pg/vg and flavoring figured out, but I am totally lost on the nic. I have a bottle of 125ml of 48mg pg nic, and I would like to mix at a 9.
    I have no clue how to figure this?

    This is what I came up with. 30ml batch ×9 (desired strength) ÷48 (strength of nic)
    So 5.6 ml of nic solution. Sound correct?

    Hold your horses! I'm not sure what you're planning there. It doesn't have to be that complicated. Most of us use 100mg nic in a pg base (I'm glad you got pg) so I'm use to calculating from 100mg. Just tell me what percentage of nic you want and I can tell you how many mils you'll need for a 30 ml bottle. Is that what you want to know? I would start with one 30 ml bottle of juice.

    9 mg is what I want. I don't have 99mg nic, I have 48mg

    Oh okay, yes. 5.64 mls of nic, to be exact, to each 30 ml bottle. 5.60 is fine. And since your nic is pg based that will count as part of your overall pg content. Most flavors are in a pg base, too.

    I can't even understand the calculator:rolleyes:. I'm a lost cause. I guess I use a way that works for me because we both come up with the same conclusion.

    I can do most of the calculations for 100mg in my head. 48mg? No way.

    I have been putting in a little over 5ml of nic. If its somewhere between 7-10mg, all good for me. Then the flavoring. I just take what's left for room, and put in 2/3 VG and 1/3 pg. With the nic being pg and the flavors as well, I figure I'm somewhere between 60-70% VG at that point. Sound right to you?

    I have made 3 batches so far. White chocolate peppermint, fantastic! Sour gummy, fantastic! And my beloved strawberry menthol. This one is good, and plenty vapable, but unfortunately It is not my favorite strawberry I don't think. I will give it time though. I could buy flavors from somewhere else and use them with what I have though, right? Do you two have recommendations? Remember, I'm a fruit head :rolleyes:

    That's great!!! 2 out of 3 right out of the gate is awesome! *high fives*

    I like Real Flavors SC Strawberry. They have other ones with strawberry in the name, but that one is really good for adding to other strawberry things. Like 1-2% for adding. That's about the only RF one I like.

    Now that you've started, I could go through my unwanted flavors for fruit for you? I have brands that most people like, Flavour Art, Flavorah, etc., that I don't/can't/ damn weird taste buds.

    Idk how much of it is me, lol. I just did what they said. Sour gummy is 17%, way higher than the rest, but seems right.

    Sure, if your not gonna use them, I'd love to give them a shot :)

    Who's they?

    Whatever works for you, Ryan. Everyone settles into their own comfortable way of diy. I'm proud of your accomplishment. I knew you could do it. And you're lucky that you have something vapable right out of the gate. Probably because you listened to common sense instructions, unlike me. I had to be the creative maverick and come up with my own recipe and it sucked!:p

    Yes, the RF SC Strawberry gets a lot of kus. Strawberry Shisha (Inawera) is also good and an old favorite of many is to mix Strawberry (The Flavour Apprentice) and Sweet Strawberry (Capella) together.

    Where are you buying your flavors?

    Yeah, that really threw me. Then I realized that 48 was about half of 100 so I just doubled it. But I googled it to make sure:rolleyes:

    They is the bottle :D I'm just putting in the % it says to. Maybe a tad more.

    Thanks, I'll check those out. Only flavors I have right now are from liquid barn, where I got the pg/vg and nic from as well

    I hear good things about Liquid Barn flavors. I have yet to try them but there's a list of their top flavors over at ELR.
