    Decided to give Rupert's mixing method a go, after a little trial and error it works really well.
    I found it is necessary to mix with a up/down motion until the VG is mixed in as my little Frother struggled to start with.
    I normally put all ingredients in a 500ml Pharmacy Bottle and shake it like a mad thing.
    This time I made 2 x 250ml batches in beakers and mixed with the gadget.
    I can see the value of this method as it was so well aerated - heaps of little bubbles.
    Pretty sure it cuts down steeping time if not eliminate the need to steep at all.
    Thanks @rupert

    Awesome @Pippi :) I am glad it worked for you.

    I love the beakers and graduated cylinders too!
    Very nice looking setup (similar to my own) :)

    Those cylinders have changed my mixing life - no need for syringes anymore :)

    You're looking more and more like a crazy chemist yourself with all of that kit! :)

    Might look like it but the truth is I make one single flavour juice in lge batches for me and a couple of friends that have the same simple taste as me.
    I have spent a small fortune on concentrates in the last year and they are taking up space in the fridge, The only time I deviate from my ADV is for a peach flavour or Blacknote.
    Definitely not a mixologist like you or Noe ;)
    Not sorry I spent money on mixing gear though - well worth it :)

    I found that frother in the kitchen drawer, would have been there for at least 6 yrs - I guess it was a gift at some point as it was like brand new and unused.
    And making large batches is easy once you figure out what you love to vape:)

    Hi pippi i am still just mucking about with making things .my favorite brew is one from vapoureys called barathom blood but am trying to find others that can take its place .I definately know i am not a butterscotch person just does not sit right with me so i will endevour to find some other flavor ,i am tooting on a blueberry honeysuckle i made the other day it isnt to bad but has a strange after taste almost like a vegetable taste on exhale ,i feel like i am falling into the trap of the juice utuber which i critiseized the other day for picking every thing out of a flavour .

    Where do you get those measured glass tubes and Beakers from as I'm looking to start having a go at mixing my own juices in the near future !

    I got the beakers from ebay and they aren't accurate - and the cylinder measuring tubes from a science supply store near my town, they are great and very accurate. I suggest finding a online science supply store if you dont have one near you. There are a couple of good ones. :)

    Even though i am very new to the self mixing thing i use a syringe for measurements an use the beakers for holding the mix .The cylinders would be good if making a large ammount so as not to have to keep using the syringes but when only making 10 or 30 ml there fine .
