    I feel like the symptoms part when a Cop pulls me over. Nicotine is BAD shit! Don't mix juice with Kids or Pets in the same room as you! Straight Nicotine WILL fuck you up! I can hear it now, Oh it won't happen to me. Your human. If you think it won't your either real stupid, or lying to yourself. That's my rant. That's how it is.

    Great post. @VaporJoes or to any Moderator, this should be stickied all over the DIY section. Seriously. People get super excited about DIY and jump into it before they've done any research. Again, good information Mandy.

    Definitely glad I read this first as part of my next three months of research on DIY mixing. I have two kids and I'd never forgive myself if I allowed something so stupidly preventable to happen to them. Thank you Mandy.

    I'm splitting 8-16 liters of my nic tonight (100% vg). Mostly putting 99% of 2 liters in 64oz amber growlers. Hubby will help. I'll also put some in 32 oz, 16oz and smaller for when I need to use it. The gallons of pg & vg can wait until I get my vape freezer next week.

    Is there anything, other than safety (should we wear masks for this massive amount of nic) and to freeze it I need to know? Like, how much air do I leave in the glass amber bottle before placing it in the freezer? I have all of the required equipment. I'd really appreciate your help. Thanks!!! (And, can my beer be within 3ft of me?)

    Leave as little air as is possible, but not so little, that it spills over when you cap it.

    While I suggest imbibing after you complete your tasks; As long as you don't spill any nic. in your beer...Yes!

    LOL, thanks Ron. Any rule on how much room to leave in the bottles before placing them in the freezer?

    I found the answer in General Discussion:
    "You want to leave as little air as possible to minimize oxidization."

    Since the liquid will not freeze solid or expand/contract much, most folks leave around 1/8th inch.

    Good Luck and Steady Hands!

    I had 2 incidences where I couldn't see the liquid line and looked up in my funnel and was overflowed. Hubby to the rescue with an eyedropper. Jeesh! I did leave little to no space in the bottles. Shaking however...there will be no air. They'll be in storage for some time. So I'll deal with it then. Perhaps take enough out to give me room to shake it up then put it back in. Dunno.
