Hello, everyone!

The Mixing Challenge is coming!

We are in search of an impartial judge for this challenge. You do not need to be a DIY mixer to be a judge.

You are ineligible if.....you are on a mixing team or are a prize sponsor.

Sign up here by February 28th. The judge will be randomly chosen and will receive details of the challenge afterward.

Good luck!

I would be interested. Although I must say my personal diy experience is minimal. Actually my juice experience is limited. So many I have not tried. I use multiple rda, rta, and tanks in my rotation.

While my work schedule wouldn't allow me to be a member of a team and be able to put in my fair share of the work, I might be interested in being a judge. How would the judging work? We mix each teams recipe or do the teams mail out pre-mixed concoctions to be distributed to the judges? Or has that been worked out yet? Inquiring minds want to know... :giggle:

Gypsy will mix and distribute the recipes to the judges. I'll add your name to the list.

In all honesty, I am EXTREMELY picky about my juice. In the two years that I have vaped only one juice gets a perfect score. All others just seem to fall short for one reason or another. I am literally on the verge of being bored to death of vapin bland flavors all the time.

@wildgypsy70 will a judge be picked before end of signups or will a judge be picked on the same day?

The judges get picked right before the drop of the challenge. I will send a pm to the chosen judges with an explanation is going to happen next.

Free juice, free juice, free juice! lol:giggle:

Just kidding, looking at my saved recipes on ELR most of them come in under 50 cents for a 30 ml. Yes, I've been anal enough to enter the cost of my flavorings and base into ELR. :facepalm: Even adding the cost of bottles I'm way under $1 for a 30. :yes:

Even if I'm not chosen to be a judge, I'm looking forward to some tasty recipes coming out of this challenge!:cheers:

Nope..... they have to add all their costs on top of what it would cost us at home. Heat, air, rent/mortgage, employees, benefits, taxes, R&D ..... on and on.
Yes we save a ton making our own but the risk for us is very low ;)

Perhaps. We don't yet know what depreciation formula @gopher_byrd is using to determine his bottle cost. :ejuice:
$24 for 100 30 ml bottles and $30 for 100 50 ml at https://wholesale.heartlandvapes.com/eliquid-bottles/eliquid-bottles-ldpe-certified.html. That comes out to 25 to 30 cents a bottle. I use plastic as I'm a cheap bastard and they are easier to use when travelling. I'm also lazy when it comes to washing bottles, the plastic ones are cheap enough to toss when done.:ejuice:

Heartland does have good bottles! I've used them for years. I tried buying flavors there too but quickly realized that, despite the great price, I had no business ordering 4 oz. of any one flavor no matter how much I liked it, lol. Of course, it's even worse when you buy a flavor that isn't as appealing as you thought it might be ... enter FW Dr. Pop of which I still have 3.99 oz. ... anybody need any? :D

Hmm, you mean you don't wash your bottles before use? I may be a bit on the germaphobe side here but I won't use any vape product before it gets cleaned and sterilized. I did once with a drip tip and immediately regretted my lapse in judgement .... machine oil does not taste good in case anyone was wondering. :blech:

So sorry I have been very unwell, now I don't know where to start. I think I have the wrong thread for the challenge. I may be a bit slow catching up because I can't see really well ATM. Bloody Nora, I will get there guys!
