We are back today with something a little different from product reviews, answering an age old question on how to make e liquid. 

This is something that many people do already, even though DIY e liquid is a growing trend in the UK and around the world many still haven't take the plunge into doing it themselves. A large number of people have tried to do it when it was a bit of an underground method, they failed miserably and moved back onto shop bought e liquid. Here at the Brews Bros we offer a few different answers to this question, you can buy our 125 range also known as 'Microshots'. You can buy our original products in 250ml, called 'Brews Shots' or you can buy our one shots

Now I've said what you can buy and where to get it from I'll tell you how to make eliquid for each individual product. You are going to end up with either 125ml, 150ml or 250ml of finished e liquid, all for an unbeatable price and Its so straight forward anyone could do It. We have done all the hard work for you. 

 

How to make e liquid using 125ml Microshots?

Step one - Unscrew the cap

Step two - Add two 18mg Nicotine shots. Unscrew the lids, squeeze each bottle into the microshot.

Step three - Pour VG into the microshot until it reaches just below the label on the bottle, screw the cap back onto the microshot, shake well. 

Step four - Steep for the desired time to ensure you get the most flavour. 

This achieves an 80VG/20PG 3mg E liquid.

How to make e liquid using 250ml Brews Shots?

Step one - Unscrew the cap

Step two - Add four 18mg nicotine shots to your Brews Shot.

Step three - Pour VG into the Brews Shot until it reaches the label on the bottle, screw the cap back onto the Brews Shot, shake well. 

Step four - Steep for the desired time to ensure you get the most flavour.

This achieves an 80VG/20PG 3mg E liquid.

Cost on making your own e liquid using a Brews Shot?

Brews Shot avg price - £9.49

Nicotine shots - £1 each

VG - £1.99

Total cost - £15.48

Cost on the highstreet - £39.98

For both the Microshots and the Brews Shots you can increase the nicotine amount by doubling the amount of nic shots.

Microshots - Four shots will make 6mg. Every two nicotine shots you add will add 3mg of nicotine. Just make sure you do this before adding VG.

Brews Shots - Eight shots will make 6mg. Every two nicotine shots you add will add 1.5mg of nicotine. Again make sure to add the VG last.

To have 0mg simply add non! Its that simple to make e liquid. 

How to make e liquid using one shots?

For one shots its slightly different. And a little more complex. For this we will mix 30ml of Cpt'n Cook at 50/50 6mg. 

For this you will need to use an e liquid mixing calculator.

You will need:

An empty bottle - For the purpose of this we will use a 30ml.

PG and VG.

Nicotine

Syringes

And of course a oneshot.

To begin mixing, open up the mixing calculator.

 

How to make e liquid

 

 In Batch enter - Amount you wish to make - 30ml

Nicotine base liquid - 18mg and 100VG because that's what the nic shots are. Change where needed. 

Flavouring percentage - 20% but you can adjust to your taste. 

Target - Here you enter what strength you would like, as you can see I have entered 6. VG/PG ratio I have selected 50/50.

To the far right it will give you all the measurements needed. 

Nicotine base (VG) 10.00ml
Cpt'n Cook (PG) 6.00ml
VG 5.09ml
PG 8.91ml
Sum 30.00ml

 

Few points to bare in mind. If a green tick shows at the bottom that means your desired mix with the ingredients you have will work. It is important you check that. 

Where it says 5.09 and 8.91 I would round them to 5.1 and 8.9 for ease of mixing. It seems very complex but once you get a hang of the mixing calculator it is very simple and you can adjust to suit your own vaping needs. 

 

Hopefully I have answered the question 'How to make e liquid' in this brief blog, feel free to share with friends so they can make their own e liquid too, not to mention save a small fortune. 

If you still can't get your head around it. We offer shortfills in a various nicotine strengths from 0mg all the way to 12mg in 125ml and in 250ml. They can be found here, you pay a small mixing fee and all you do is add the nicotine shots supplied! 

Thanks for reading and I'll be back next week with possibly a review and also 'How to steep e liquid' covering the basics and some myths!
