What You Will Need
The 2 items pictured above are all that is needed in terms of tools, but if you wish to have a more comprehensive inventory, you should look at our post on Tools and Supplies.
10 or 20 ml plastic or glass e liquid bottles.
Graduated Cylinder- 10 or 25 ml, Beaker or Medicine Cup showing ml measures.
PG and VG
All e liquid is made of a base which consists of a blend of PG, VG and flavours. (Nicotine is optional). Start with a 50/50 blend which is 50% PG and 50 % Vg. This is known as a base.
Flavouring brands differ in intensity or concentration, so there is no set percentage. Also, people's tastes are different, some like a stronger mix while others prefer something more subtle. In order to find an average starting point, flavouring manufacturers generally have a suggested starting percentage, and it's common to be anywhere from 1 - 5 percent.
Percentages are also based on what other flavours or ingredients one is using, if any. A good rule of thumb is the more flavours you use, the lower the individual percentages. However, it always come down to trial and error.
Let's jump right in and start mixing, using these 2 examples as a basic guide.
