Bright red?? You mean it's gonna turn into blood?!  

But seriously, how long does it last out of the freezer? I've only had mine a month or two but I'm thinking maybe I should put some into smaller bottles and freeze it. I highly doubt it'd be in there years though.

RE: TPD
Looks like the only thing i need to stock up on is some big tanks then if there's a size limit i like the bigger tanks saves a lot of messing about with smaller ones, I take it you will be able to get the coils from the Eu for them after this date ? as there the only things you need a regular supply of, at least it gives a bit of time to stock up on, Through i'm happy enough to order from China it won't stop me vaping! Smile I'll be making my own juice eventually so stuff them haha

Not quite

As nicotine oxidises it turns red in colour. This is why old custards turn black. Keeping it away from air and light will help that.

The reason for freezing it is simple, just about every chemical reaction halves in rate  for a ten degree © drop in temperature. Keeping it at 40C below ambient will therefore increase its lifespan by a rate of approximately 16.

The bottle on the left is nic in PG which is younger than the bottle of nic in VG on the right - but has been exposed to more oxygen. These bottles were pulled out of the freezer to have their photos taken.

Same supplier for both.

RE: TPD
Nah - It is about a year old. If I were seriously worried I'd rebottle it in amber glass bottles of around 100ml capacity and take one out for ready use and keep the rest in the freezer. Glass is less permeable to oxygen than plastic. While it is bright coloured, it vapes just fine. I meant to write date of receipt not he label when I got it.

But remembered just now.

RE: TPD
Thanks mate, that makes sense. My nic is VG based and it's in a big opaque white plastic bottle, so it's probably pretty light-proof. I think I'll still freeze some though, just sounds like a good idea, at the very least it can't hurt anything.
