RE: What did you mix today?
Did my occasional litre mix of QC.

I don't bother with any fancy methods for this. I tip 40ml of cream into a calibrated 100ml beaker. Then tip that into a 250ml beaker. Then measure out the 160ml vanilla into the same 100ml beaker to rinse all the cream flavour out of it (That stuff is strong, I'm still smelling it in another room and I didn't spill any). Again tipped into the 250ml beaker. (Which with the litre bottle are sterilised before use). Then tip the 200ml of flavour into the litre bottle. Then rinse out the 100ml and 250ml beakers with PG. I'd have to do this with gravimetric methods as well because you can't pour from 5l bottles of liquids accurately enough so I'd still have to use transfer beakers whether I use the graduations or not. I never bother with measuring the PG, the litre bottle has a 1l marking on it so I just tip PG from the 250ml beaker into the litre bottle till I hit the line.

That actually took longer to type than it took me to do. I dumped some 3 minute (I usually use about 6) denture tablets into a bowl to hold the beakers and the litre bottle. Add hot water then fill up the bottle from the bowl and let the whole lot stand for ten minutes. Then rinse everything out with hot water.

I wash the beakers before putting them away but don't bother sterilising them as I'd still have to do this again before using them the next time.

If I were doing more complex mixes I'd dig the balance and a ton of small beakers out to measure the ingredients gravimetrically. But for a simple 50:50 with two flavours it isn't worth the effort.

I must order some more apple crumble flavour to make up next year's batch of it. It usually takes a couple of weeks to arrive from France though it has taken 4 weeks but came with a 2 week previous date on it so they'd obviously run out and had to make a new batch.
