Frothing Your Mix?

The question is at the end my explanation leading up to the question maybe unnecessary so if you want to skip it I understand.

My juice Milkgasium has become my staple so I started mixing it in batches of 250ml ( http://e-liquid-recipes.com/recipe/2645394/Milkgasium for reference) I was unhappy shaking and thought about getting a badger paint mixer that I have seen quite a few people rave about but I did not want to spend the money and not like it so I improvised. I got out my Pyrex measuring cup and my hand mixer with the whisk attachment and set to mixing up a new batch. After all the ingredients were in I went to work with the mixer and I frothed it. I covered the cup let it sit until all the bubbles died off and bottled it.

As I bottled it I noticed it was already taking on that lovely amber color but did not really think anything about it I put it in its place to forgot about it for 21 days. as the bottle I was using was running low (was about half a bottle) I did what I always do start a new bottle doing it the same way and as I was putting away my newest bottle I pulled out the other one because you have to rotate stock and the color was what it normally is when it is ready, and it had only been 14 days. I pulled it out and tested it just to see if I was going crazy, and all the flavor was there 7 days early.

I have tried every speed steeping trick out there short of ultrasonic yes I even tried the dryer one. For me, none of them really have worked or just been more of a hassle than they helped.

So my question to those of you who use electric mixers of some sort, is this true for you do your frothed mixes come together faster?

I have a small AA battery powered milk frother that I use in conjunction with a hot water bath. Works great and have not noticed my juices getting a peppery flavor from the nicotine oxidizing, but I mix at only 2mg just for a little kick and that may not be strong enough nicotine dosage to affect the flavor in any way. And yes I notice my juices are ready in about 30% less time.

my mixes are at 6mg and never had it happen either I wonder if it is Nic brand that is the problem with pepper

But thanks @VinnySem for joining in I really want to know if this is a fluke or fact.

It's a fact that oxidation makes nicotine peppery, and it also stands to reason that an impeller type mixing method would get flavors blended better faster. My "evidence" is anecdotal at best, but it seems that at lower nicotine the cavitation from a frother or similar mixing method doesn't impart a peppery characteristic to ejuice.

I understand that oxidation can make nicotine peppery, my reason for starting this is not the nic part it is on the infusion of the flavors, so taking the nic part out of the equation and mixing everything but the nic. Is this cutting down on the aging time I know in cooking the better things are mixed the better they taste so it stands to reason the better you mix your juice the less time it will take to hit the flavor profile you want at least in my mind. That is really the part I started this discussion about. The pepper nic was a great bonus as I had not even considered that happening, so I am glad it was pointed out.

So much so I would love to find someone who has tried this with hire nic content and had the pepper syndrome or maybe someone who has had it happen with 6mg and under who has had it happen just to see.

I have always frothed initially and then used a nitecore magnetic mixer, then i have steeped, airing for one hour weekly. Excellent results. Nicotine vendor may be a problem or nicotine bottle stored for long times, so now i try to buy the nicotine amount in almost the sizes i can use every time i open a new bottle of vaperstek nic.

I never got into speed steeping. I've always viewed electric mixers as an unnecessary step and overkill to be honest. My liquids get mixed plenty good just by shaking the bottle. If a frother or magnetic stirrer helps for you, that's all that matters. I doubt I'll ever change my routine though.
