Ordered at 9:46 and received a shipping notice at 11:26. I'm in no hurry for my order.
Got my BCF order this morning.
Mine shipped, should be here Monday.
I have made 3 orders from BCV and received each of them two days later. Why would I order elsewhere? Well, maybe for a couple of flavors they don’t carry. Was looking for FW 555 but ended up ordering TFA DK Tobacco. We’ll see.
Anyway, thanks for the great service.
Mine shipped within a couple hours of ordering, should be here Sat. or Mon. Haven't been tracking since BCF is so reliable.
My my, this has been in the freezer for awhile....
On flavorings I found that TFA Brown Sugar Extract really is!
It will crystallize in the deep freeze. Only flavoring that I have seen change any from being in the freezer.
I assume that when the time comes a thawing and maybe a warm water bath and shaking will restore it?
Brown sugar will actually go back to its original state thawing at room temp and shaking. Acetyl Pyrazine is the same. I've had TFA Bavarian cream come out of the freezer with clumpy white "flakes" in it, but microwaving for <5 seconds with a good shake makes it good as new.
Oh WOW!!!! That has been in the freezer for a bit!
sent from my phone but thats not the reason for the bad spelling. it is what it is yo.
Ya think? The date on the bottle is 12-09-14! BUT...it's good! No aroma, barely a shade darker than when I got it, and it tastes FABULOUS....I really wish you guys sold nic again...
Next time I clean my freezer, I'll have to photograph the bottle of years-old Wizard Labs nic I still have (then take it to the hazardous waste disposal facility). That stuff looks like crude oil, lol.
And that, folks, is the difference between Vaperstek and "other" nic!
But my over 2.5 yr old nic got from another place is still perfectly clear in the freezer.
I know because it is in clear glass bottles.
I also wonder if the base the nic is in has any bearing on the degradation rate?
Mine is in PG.
I've heard that VG based nic will oxidize quicker, but I don't know from experience. A good 99% of mine is PG based, I only keep a small amount of VG nic to mix for a friend with allergies.
I just opened a few of the flavorah 15ml bottles tonight. I had two stick. The dropper is stuck inside the cap. I almost lost my flavoring. I suppose tomorrow I will find a knife or something to pry it out.
Speaking of Nic I just pulled out my last bottle of Wizard labs Ice 100mg/ml. It was crystal clear. My RTS nic from 2013 that is 100mg/ml VG has a very faint tinge/yellow.
I have also had new FLV break on me. Luckily, my last 3-4 FLV flavor bottles from BCV came pre-opened. Now, if I have too I use the ...

Good to know its not "just me"! I'll remember this tip.
No, FLV caps are awful, I've read many complaints and had to rebottle a few of mine for that reason.
Ahh have never used FLV flavorings... yet anyway.
The worst caps I have seen are the FA flat flip top caps.
Ugh, I forgot about those! I rebottled everything I got in them!
