    I think it's the opposite. Juice companies use the cheapest ingredients possible to maximize profit.

    I agree. Half the time I see clones and think “ there’s absolutely no way they’re using that” or “that’s way too many flavors....too expensive”. KISS. Keep it simple stupid. Least amount of flavorings and the cheapest company. Diy is way better. We use whatever we want!

    <3Pretty much my story, too. It’s like a light bulb goes on in your head. Like you just finally get it. And then all the doors of possibility open up.

    Awww, nah. They use what we have. It’s a challenge sometimes, for sure, but worth every grey hair. I love it when a recipe comes together(heading v3 on the chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream)! And then when other people like it? Damn, it’s such a good feeling.....that I made that and people are enjoying it! We can walk you through it, there are threads for every question you could ask. Jump in!!!

    Same. When I think clone, I immediately go to tfa, cap and FW. Then add 30% sweetener lol

    All ejuice is made the same way. Flavorings, sweerteners, PG/VG and nic all mixed up.
    However all flavorings of the same flavor title do not taste the same.

    Not all e-Liquids have sweeteners I personally have never used any in my DIY although I have some in stock. I just never found a reason to use it.

    Mixed up a 1/2 Liter of GOC today. Almost 80ml of flavorings.

    Let it set on the stirrer for a couple of hours.

    Now I have a weeks worth of Game Over Custard. In a week.

    Planned a juice to create tomorrow when I get smaller bottles in the mail. Sweet raspberry lemonade. Sounds good in my head anyways.

    Do you usually leave it uncovered or open for hours? Some might freak exposing it to air for so long.

    Sure we can surmise what commercial e-Liquids have sweeteners when they trash a coil but those recipes are not published and sort of protected.

    I hate to see incorrect information given to members looking to start DIY. Like all e-Liquids are made the same there is also ZERO with No Nicotine.

    Oh ok, I haven't looked into it at all. I always assumed that some VG/PG was higher quality than others, and the same goes for the different brands of flavors. I also thought the process used for deriving nicotine would affect the quality/strength/flavor of it.
    Guess I'll start reading up on it soon. I feel like it's about time I try it out

    Do NOT get soy based VG.
    The Essiential Depot palm derived VG and their PG is good.
    You can also get their stuff on Amazon, sometimes cheaper than from ED once you figure in shipping and such esp if you are a Prime member.

    Capella is my fav flavoring supplier.
    TFA is my least favorite but all brands seem to have a few really good flavorings.
    Flavor West Butterscotch is my go to BS flavoring.
    And for Vanilla custard? CAP VCV1 all the way.
    Some other custards do well in many mixes, but for main custard the CAP for me.

    I've got Prime, that would be great receiving stuff for e-liquid that quick! I've never even thought to look for DIY ingredients or supplies on Amazon, so thanks for the tip!

    They also have some flavorings since they are food flavorings and not technically vape stuff.

    I also get all my syringes there. Duda Diesel.

    And I got all my boston round and dropper bottles from Amazon.

    My main flavoring supplier is BCF bullcityflavors.com.
    good selection, prices and fast service.

    Cut my hair while vaping.

    Put fresh cotton and coils in both Drops. after doing side by side comparisons have determined that I'm the odd ball in the mix and prefer Cotton Bacon V2 to prime. Maybe I'm just too used to it.

    Got really bored and pulled the "old" Druga and iPV5 out of storage. Forgot how good both of these were. Druga is a red headed motherfucker to put a build into but is a damn nice vape and worth the effort.

    Oh yeah still diggin the hell out of the Rage mod.

    How does a person vape while cutting their own hair? That sounds like a recipe for some crooked lines after fogging out the bathroom.

    because logistics are so hard. Shipping from medicine hat and being delivered in howard city. This is the route so far. Package is still in LA, so it could take some more twists and turns.

    Doesn't make much sense but happens sometimes. There's gotta be a reason for it.

    I'm sure mine has something to do with it being international.

    Many times it has to do with a person loaded it in the wrong bin. Once had a package land at Kennedy and do 1,000 miles around New York State before it ever came to me was delayed 4 days or more. Oh yeah it also went to Massachusetts and Connecticut before it go to me.

    Very easily. Since I'm virtually bald it only takes a few minutes. I have the vape in one hand and the cordless cutter in the other and switch hands as I transition from one side to the other. Also helps to not vape something chucking large clouds.

    Made the last version of my custard recipe. I had some advice about not needing custard to make custard so it's been a good journey. From the first to this it's been good. Each time got a little closer. I finally have a bit of confidence mixing that I gained by just trying stuff out and researching my butt off.

    Besides actually vaping, all I did today is write a letter to Sen. Lisa Murkowski asking her to reconsider co-sponsoring Dick Durbin's flavor ban bill they are supposedly introducing sometime this week

    I've literally written dozens, even before the deeming regs were published; my state's legislators keep introducing bills to tax all vaping products 100% of their wholesale price. Has happened at least three times since I started vaping. Hasn't ever passed though.
