RE: Steeping.
I recently saw a video on youtube, a guy made a machine by himself - he puts in the liquidbottles and they rotate the whole time, in my opinion it is just mixing the whole time nothing more but he claims that it speeds up the steeping of the E-Liquid.
Hmm I don't believe it but as a mixing machine I think this is a pretty cool idea! Big Grin

But look at this:

RE: Steeping.
Mixing is one thing, steeping another altogether!

RE: Steeping.
I have to agree with the video findings to a degree - the thermos method (still can't find the post but will describe it below) I found to be a decent way to "speed up" the steeping for those times when you just can't wait....but I will always insist that TIME is the best method.

The thermos method is simple and I encourage everyone to test it for themselves.

1. find a beverage thermos
2. boil some water sufficient to fill the thermos
3. place water in the thermos and use a thermometer - I ensured my water was 150F
4. place sealed e-juice bottle in the thermos
5. leave it sealed for 24 hours

After 24 hours you will see a significant colour change (much darker) - from my experiment I estimated it to be equivalent to about 2 weeks steep - in one experiment I repeated the entire process for another 24 hours.

Was equivalent to 3-4 weeks of natural steep.....

I will try it out just for fun with some E-Juice I made that needs some steeping time Smile

RE: Steeping.
Ahhhh before I forget it, I recently decided to switch to brown glas bottles instead of plastic ones, what do you guys think does it bother the steeping process anyway?

RE: Steeping.
Well, my untrained experience tells me with any kind of bottle there'd be no difference when it comes to steeping.

Tinted bottles have the benefit of protection from sunlight.
