RE: Going to have to start DIY e-juice
Michael, the shade difference is aesthetics, my question is the favour/taste difference....looking at the actual juice is it a darker shade or is it maybe the hot water effect on the bottle as you noted..... Sad

RE: Going to have to start DIY e-juice
Yeah the juice is definitely a little bit darker, and the taste is definitely a bit different. Right now it's probably about equivalent of steeping for a couple of days. I'd guess it'd take another 2-3 heat/dunk/repeat cycles before it looks/tastes like it's steeped for a week. Still, a few hours of reheating and simmering vs. a week of steeping isn't a bad trade-off.

maybe a glass bottle for steeping would also help

RE: Going to have to start DIY e-juice
Yeah in retrospect that would have been a good idea. I've got a few mostly-empty glass juice bottles around somewhere with juice I bought from a store, I can just take the labels off and use that for steeping.

I was already planning on the 100mg Nic. Thanks for the tip on Heartland! I am going to start with Vanilla Custard and some other ones I can add to it, possibly Blackberry based on what you said on another thread! btw, Are you SURE you dont want to refer me to any of the FAQs!Sarcastic_hand

Which Vanilla Custard are you starting with? That's one flavor that often needs to steep for r a few weeks before it's any good. At least, so I've been told. I haven't used a vanilla Custard base before lol.

Perhaps I should rethink this and just get plain Vanilla(Canadian Beaver Butt)Flavor. (I am going to label any Juice made with Vanilla Canadian Beaver Butt in deference to paulS).

Vanilla + Sweet Cream makes a great custard-like flavor that can be vaped right away.

I reckon the colour change is primarily down to oxidation of nicotine (it goes reddish). Whether this also affects flavour is another matter. I've some juice that steeped for 6 months in a glass bottle and was still horrible. When transferred to a plastic bottle and given another month of steeping it tasted really nice.

I think some steeping is allowing oxygen to get at the juice. Some isn't. For things that need air to get at them, glass bottles are contraindicated. For things that you don't want air to get to (Like the 2 litres of 72mg/ml nicotine in my freezer) glass bottles are a good idea.
