    I'm new to diy, well semi new, only done it once before and I kept getting wierd tasting juice, I tried everything and couldn't figure out why. Well after wasting a 500ml bottle of VG I realized the PG I got had a funny taste to it, not sure if I got a bad batch or what, by the time I realized it was the PG I figured it was too late to contact nicotine river about it so I've been Leary on buying more supplies. I'm about to order some VG and PG from my freedom smokes but would like input on good places to order from

    I order VG from essential depot and PG from bull city favors. Never had an issue with either.

    Did you contact NR? I've used their pg and peg400 with no problems. You likely just got a bad bottle or old bottle. If you have a local feed store or tractor supply you can get USP approved pg there cheaply. Have also used ECX pg with no issues.

    Also, you should single flavor test. Even your VG, and PG so you know what they taste like, and if there's any off notes that you don't like. Just a few drops on your coil should be enough.

    Innit nice to see you!!

    I have been a member here for some years but never ever posted (Lurking) but now with you and Smoky (and probably others) I seem to find some good old friends of the other family around here.. So I'll drop by more often now! See you soon and thanks for answering (hope I didn't sound too cheeky)

    I like cheeky, no worries. Actually quite a few that cross the road to visit other forums. I'm Letitia at all of them, only use the 9 here because vu insisted, must be another Letitia here already.

    But I recognized you straight away, (well the avatar and the mixing side of the forum was a dead giveaway :))

    Neither do I, same all over and as you saw, I don't change the avatar neither!
    Really nice to see you and if need any help.. (Don't think you do, but had to say it!) shout!

    Now I'm working on an easy one, fisherman's friend lozenges.. just a small doubt about the capsaicin..o_O;)

    I didn't bother contacting them because it had been a few months since I had bought it and I figured there wasn't much they could or would do. I assume it may have just been a bad batch because nobody else has seem to have it happen that one talked to

    I actually made the recipe, and it works, but it came out more of a strong (but good) balsamic lozenge rather than a FF , I'll have to try a stronger liquorice layer, I'll keep the sweet liquorice by MOB (gave it a very creamy taste) and see with the FA and/or the FLV both on my vape mail.

    Different strokes for different folks I guess. I can only stomach half of a fisherman’s friend and ONLY when nothing else will cure what is ailing me. HAha
