Q: What is DIY mixing, home brewing, and one shots etc?

A: This is where vapers take concentrates and add VG and PG to the mix and make larger volumes of e-liquid. Our Brews Shots are sold exactly for this purpose.

Q: What are Brews Shots?

A: Brews Shots are flavour concentrates in larger bottles that you can mix at home with VG and PG to make the finished product. 250ml and 500ml are the finished product sizes when fully mixed – it is not the amount of concentrate we sell.

Q. What’s the difference between Brews Shots and Short Fills?

A. Brews Shots require you to add VG & PG and leave it to steep. Shortfills are pre-steeped and only require you to add 10ml of VG based Nicotine to your desired strength.

Q: What are VG & PG?

A: VG – Vegetable Glycerine and PG – Propylene Glycol. These are used to suspend the flavouring and create the vape.

Q: Is it easy to mix my own e-liquid?

A: Yes, it’s really simple. When you receive your Brews Shots, simply add VG and PG as per the volumes on the label and leave to steep. Make sure you shake the bottles well when mixing and periodically during the steep time.

Our mixes use an overall 70/30 VG/PG split but you can adjust that to your own taste. We assume that the Nicotine you’ll be using has a PG base therefore, if you don’t want to add Nicotine, or use one with a VG base then you’ll need to add extra PG to compensate. Don’t worry if you don’t get it exactly right but the closer the better.

Q. Can I use your Nicotine Shots in the Brews Shots?

A. Yes you can. However, our Nic Shots are VG based, therefore you’ll need to adjust the amount of VG you use. You’ll also need to add extra PG as we have assumed you will use Nicotine with a PG base.

Q: What do I need to buy to mix myself?

A: If you’re new to DIY mixing and unsure what to get, then have a look at our Starter Kit where you can choose 3 flavours and we will send you the right amount of VG and PG to get you started. You will also need a measuring jug to pour out the correct amount.

Q: Do I have to add nicotine?

A: No you don’t. But we recommend you add PG to top up the equivalent volume in Brews Shot and VG in the Short Fills.

Q: Do I need to wait the full steep time?

A: No, but we recommend you do to ensure the best flavour profile.

Q: Do I have to mix my own?

A: No, you don’t. You can buy products from our Short Fill Range where all you have to do is add 10ml of VG based nicotine to the desired strength.

Q: Do you have any tutorial videos?

A: Yes! Have a look at our YouTube channel
