This is the one I refer to when I re-wick:




Thanks mate!

That motivated me and gave me the last drip in the bottle that I needed to get 100% to the conclusion to buy that baby tomorrow! Smile
I read a lot of Comments and watched a lot of Videos about it, thats what I like to do when I buy stuff (it doesnt matter how much it costs) - I just wanted to get some positive feedback on it - I'm really looking forward to watch that RBA Tutorials tommorow and build it then - I won't use the contained premade Coils from the beginning on! Smile

Thanks a lot and greetings

Hehe yeah I ordered like 12 different Aromas to test them out and one Base of 1 Liter with 3mg Nicotine and another 1 Liter Bottle with 1.5mg Nicotine - They are both 70VG/30PG ratio and are the highest quality ones made in Germany - I will try out these Aromas and make little "Batches" but then if I get some good Liquids out of some of those Aromas I will make a larger "Batch" Wink

Thanks for the tipps and yeah I think it's a pretty cool thing with the mixing - just to secure that everything is clean while mixing and that it doesn't stand to much on the Air that the Nicotine doesn't begins to oxidate. But it will have too a lot time to steep! Smile

But I don't worry about the clean workspace and my mixing skills - I'm working in the Pharmaceutic Industry as a Chemical Worker and to work clean and save is part of my life! =)

RE: New to Vaping
I'm assuming what you call aromas, are what we call flavoring concentrates. Not all juices require steeping. If it is just a mix of a couple of fruits, no steeping is needed. As a general rule, you only have to steep cream mixes, like with custard or cheesecake.

RE: New to Vaping
i've found coconut requires a bit of steeping to bring out the mellow tones as well .
we have a wonderful thread here " what did you mix today " where we share our mixes and success , there are an abundance of flavors from the common place , to some very outside the box combinations . it's a fun thread to visit , and has helped some of us to become quite crafty flavor smiths.

RE: New to Vaping
Today finally my Base and Flavours arrived and I took the time to mix them up Smile

Before I mixed them up I went to a Reseller to buy some Stuff and the Cloud Beast but went out of the Shop with another Tank in the bag. ;D

Here are some pictures of the little shopping tour and the first final selfmade liquids:

So jealous right now, I can't wait for a day off so I try mixing my own. Looks like you did well.

Don't be jealous .. Smile You will soon mix your own Liquid too why not?

It was my first little Batch and for an Update two of the Flavours I already tried out and one of them is delicious! I just made a bigger batch with 100 mL so it can steep a bit (the Producer recommends about 7 Days) - The bigger Batch I made is "Muffin Woman" a Flavourprofile like "Muffin Man" and it's gorgeus - It's maybe not 100% like the original but in my Opinion it's like 90% out of it even if i didn't use a 80VG/20PG Base for it .. I used a 70VG/30PG Base but its very delicious! Wink

The "Police Woman" I tried out too but it's not nearly the same as the "Police Man" - I will let it steep for a Week or two and try it out again but otherwise I won't mix it Wink

The other Liquids I will try out these Days and decide if I will make larger Batches or not.

Today I first tried out the "Smok TFV8 Cloud Beast" and used the premade Quadruple Coil and it's just awesome!!!! I vape it around 70-75 Watts with my beloved Police Man in it and this Thing is a Monster!!!!! Can't wait to try out the RBA on it but one Thing is for sure this Quadruple Coils rock! I don't know if I should try the 8-Core Coil but I got a bit respect for it and don't want to vape higher than ~ 80 Watts at the Moment (I began with around 15 Watts on my Kanger TopTank and SS-Coils ~ 0.5 Ohm)... I'm still a beginner and learning a lot of stuff from day to day .. But here I log a bit my "knowlegde progress" and share everything with the Community.

Keep on vaping and vape safe - A lot of greetings to all of you from Germany!! Smile

RE: New to Vaping
Hey people .. Smile

Today I tried out all of my first little Batches and decided for another three of them to make larger Batches (100 mL) .. Smile
They are delicious but some of them need some steeping so they have enough time now to steep hehe
Should I shake them every Day a bit and squeeze a bit air in it or let them just lay in my dark drawer? 

Here is a picture I took of the larger Batches .. Smile

RE: New to Vaping
I'd just leave them in a dark drawer.

The thermodynamics are in your favour. It'll mix (and do whatever steeping does) all by itself. If it needs more oxygen getting to it, then a shake will help. I've only come across one flavour that needed oxygen to get at it.

Thanks for the advice Don! Smile

I will just let it steep there in the dark drawer for a week or two .. Smile
Can't wait to try them all out hehe

Greetings to all of you
