I completely forgot about this thread, honestly. I might have to try that later. I've always wanted to make an NET flavor, just never got around to doing it. I'd trust Johnny's insights though, he seems to know what he's doing.

Well I'll need to make juice again in the next month or two, so I'll try it then with a brand new bottle and compare the newly mixed stuff with heat steeped, if someone else doesn't try it before then.

I usually boil water in a coffee cup in the microwave then let the bottle sit in the 200 degree water. When VG is heated it gets thin as water and what would normally take days or weeks to steep can be done in as little as 15 minutes. Heated VG absorbs flavor rapidly compared to letting a bottle steep at room temperature for weeks. It's a simple yet surprisingly little known trick.

Has anyone tried this? Does it really work? Cool if it does...

Odd someone was mentioning that just the other day - an engineer (who reminds me so much of Sheldon Cooper)....we were chatting about vaping and processes, etc....he starts telling me about speeding up the steeping process...I dismissed it as I know from when I was a kid some people would use additives with the home-made wine batches...my old man was a traditionalist and always clear that the only way to age anything was with time and that the world needed to slow the hell down! Same still applies today - maybe more so as I realize I'm now the "old man" talking about slowing down! Smile
