RE: Steeping.
Here's yet another weird thing okay? - that bottle with the base, that has been standing out in the open for three weeks, is 0.8 nicotine, but the mixture stays clear. It does not get darker at all. Before you ask, yes, I'm absolutely positive, and I can feel all the typical effects of nicotine too.
How is this possible??Superstition

RE: Steeping.
Wo, is there any flavoring in the base? Some mixes just stay clear.

RE: Steeping.
bibliora, no, it's just pg\vg mix with some nic. I was under an impression here that the nic itself makes liquids dark through oxidation. Doesn't it?

RE: Steeping.
It isn't just nicotine oxidation though that certainly is a large part of it. My vanilla flavour concentrate does darken with time, it starts out a pale brownish colour but by the time I'm at the end of a litre, it is a much darker brown. This does not appear to affect the flavour at all.

RE: Steeping.
I know this is an old thread, but since it has the title of what I need to know I'll hop on!

I had mentioned in a previous post that my husband and I had started vaping then stopped due to agitation with leaking gear so when we got our new gear we had year old juice that we used and thought they were great. We bought more Michael's favorite when we ran out and he didn't like it near as much. Oddly, he liked one that he didn't before so we deduced that some juice needs to age like a fine wine or whisky or something.

I am guessing that steeping speeds the aging process. There seems to be a bunch of different ways to do this, is one better than the other or should we just put it up for a year lol.

Actually, steeping *is* the aging process. And despite many attempts to speed it up, it seems that time is really the only effective agent of change.

RE: Steeping.
The main juices that need to steep longer than say a couple of weeks are custards, creams and some bakery types. Fruits need only a few days at most - if they are left a long time the flavour fades. One way I have found to speed the process is by adding a little Vanilla to the mix - but it still needs a few weeks at least.
I am more into fruits now - at my age I don't have time to wait[Image: tongue.gif].

There is a trick ...
Fill a microwavable bowl with uncooked rice.
Heat the rice in the microwave until hot.
Cover our juice bottles with the hot rice.
When the rice is cool repeat the process a few times.
Uncap the e-juice to let air in then cap and shake well.

Usually need about three times to simulate the aging process.
