Just mixed first batch...I got a ways to go I think! lol
« on: July 19, 2012, 08:40:25 PM »
How do you mix? I saw a video of one of thwe TW guys do a mix and, it appears he just used the pg nic and flavoring only. No non-nic was added. I added ag  and the flavor was really weak! had to go back and bump up the flavoring (gold label mandarin). I followed Todd Muller calc for original mix. It seems like the Non-nic ag weakened the flavoring so I used kentucky windage and added about 20 drops (1mil) more of flavor...

I'm new at mixing too, but a few things I learned (I had read, but thought was crap, later learned...these folks know what they are talking about...lol):

Are you counting drops or using a device such as a syringe to measure? If you are counting drops, make sure that each liquid you are dropping is in the same kind of container, cause the drop sizes are different. (I decided to forgo the drop counted method, and got a few syringes from the pharmacy to use) My first mix (I used the calculator) and counted drops. It was supposed to be 5 ml, ended up being less than 1/2 that...needless to say tasted bad. After I got the syringe, mixed using the measurements, and turned out much better.

If I'm way of base, just ignore me!  :D

Yes I used a syringe with Titanium Ice and the Ag but just counted drops when I added the flavoring...and I just went back and watched Alan's vid again and I was wrong, he did use dilutant.

I figure that in the end, it is all about playing/figuring it out. My hope is that I won't waste too much before figuring it out!  :P

Well, like I said I added about a mil more of mandarin concentrate and you can taste it better now...still not the greatest but definitely vapable! I think it is now just a matter of tweaking to taste. But please, anyone with advice I am ALL EARS!!!!  :D

That will throw you off.  If you're counting drops, the dropper MUST be the same for all liquids or the drops are not the same size and your mix will be off.

There's less discrepancy in drop size between two fairly similar plastic dropper tips, than completely different dropper tips (i.e. a flavoring dropper and the small empty mixing bottles TW sells are pretty much the same, but a flavor dropper and the Ice glass dropper are quite different)
