Food based Glycerine to sweeten vape?
« on: May 15, 2012, 03:34:06 PM »
 8)I heard that some people use food based Glycerine (V.G) to sweeten the vape!

If I use a small proportion neat in P.G, say 8-10% Would the viscosity be thin enough still and get away with out diluting it?

Also, If I haven't got de-ionised/ de-minerised water or vodka! Can I use kettle water instead?  ;D

VG mentioned on here is usually BP or USP. you will get this at any drug store and pharmaceutical grade. Food grade is ok as long as its 100% with no additives but you will pay more for this.

You could add a few drops undiluted but works best when made up to AG with 15-20% water

Im not certain about this, but I dont think you can use kettle water? (as in water that has been boiled?)
I thought there were too many minerals in it, and it could damage your atty??

Can anyone confirm this please?

It should be as pure as you can get it, You can boil the kettle and catch any steam then pop that water in an empty kettle and repeat a few times. the water will be ok by the end to use with minimal impact on your atty. Easier just to buy a 99p bottle of distilled water though

Yeah,and that bottle would be cheaper than burning all that electricity boiling your kettle half a dozen times  :)

No need to triple distil water in a kettle if done right. YouTube has plenty of vids on distiling water with a kettle contraption that will catch the steam (distilled water) the first time around. Easiest way is to flaot a bowl in a pan half full of water and put the lid on upside down. Then heat and the bowl will catch the distilled water that drips from the upside down lid.  ;)

Indeed.  I cut with distilled water as well, being it's less than 1 US dollar per US gallon locally.  I assume deionized water would work equally well as any uncharged organics would surely be dispatched by the atomizer.
