As long as I didn't mind eating only every 6th month Tongue

It is the best vanilla out there.

Well i for one will keep on buying it from you as long as you sell it Smile I've not tried other brands of vanilla and see no point in doing so when it's as good as yours Smile

I think you actually don't want a milk frother because you don't want to introduce that much air into the juice.

I thought the air would just dissipate after a few mins? Same as shaking a bottle

RE: What have you got on order ?
The bubbles will settle out in time but if you froth the juice (lid off, open to the world), you are oxygenating it and quickly accelerating the breakdown process. Always stir, heat, or shake in a closed container. Oxygen is the number one enemy of juice and nic (heat is a close second for nic). That's what frothing is, after all. Introduction of air to lighten the milk.

Now, if you want to make me a fancy cappuccino, you're in business.

I wasn't planning on keeping the bottles open just mixing it and then putting the cap on straight away I assume that's ok? also, for mixing the pg/vg as I mix that first in bulk to do several bottles as for nic i don't use it Smile

I use a milk frother for some batches.....after combining my flavours (and PG) I mix it for about a minute, then I add my VG and give it another 2 minutes or so....most of my mixes steep with a cap on....

RE: What have you got on order ?
It will lead to early aging and degrading of the juice. Maybe if it's a shake-n-vape that will be consumed within a month of mixing, but I still make it a point never to use a method that introduces copious amounts of oxygen into a mix. But as always, to each his own. Do what works for you and all is well.
