I don't know how my question can be this difficult!

My question as well. It's rather like shaking the water before making tea. You have a bottle of a uniform substance (assuming USP or other pharmacopoeia grade); shaking does nothing besides tiring your arm out for no reason.




Aeration.

Knock knock, let the devil in. Malevolent as I've ever been, head is spinnin'. This medicine's screamin', "L-l-l-let us in!"

No point at all doing it before the mix - you're just wasting a lot of energy on a big bottle that would be better applied to the small bottle later. (Besides which, the stuff you're hoping to disturb is the flavourings in the case that aeration matters at all, usually because of ethyl alcohol. Aerating the carriers/diluants separately is almost completely ineffective; you want the cavitation and air mix-in happening in the presence of the flavours - assuming you want it at all.)

If you need to do something to your raw diluants that will actually be useful, warm your VG to between 40°C and 50°C before mixing to thin it to a much runnier consistency so that your shake will accomplish a lot more in a lot less time and with a lot less effort - especially if you're mixing high-VG juice.

Answering the question is easy: I make a point of scheduling a shake time of zero point zero seconds for the PG and VG. It's a ridiculous thing to do. Don't waste time and energy doing it.

IDK, Harry might think there's too much "chit chat" going on up in here!
Always keep your ear to the ground!

- Put your PG, VG, Nic and flavoring(s)(and any other ingredients you use) all together in one bottle.
- THEN shake it, froth it, vibrate it, drop kick it, slam dunk it, pile drive it, whatever it is you feel is best to get it all mixed up together.

I put everything in a beaker, then stir it with a plastic spoon until it looks well mixed (or my arm gets tired). Then I fill a bunch of 50ml bottles.

Ahhh, I do that too sometimes. But the question is, do you shake your PG and VG before you do that? xD

I sometimes feel sorry for people asking such questions and seeing us making bad jokes about it. ^^

It's the phrasing of your question. Simply changing the word "before" to "when" makes everything fall together..."how long should i shake my (ingredients) WHEN mixing?"

What does he mean when he says words?
