When you purchase a bottle of our eliquid it is made to order from a larger batch with no nicotine. To enjoy the highest flavor profile of our eliquid it needs to be steeped. What is steeping? Steeping is a term that has been adopted by the vaping community that literally means aging or maturing. The flavor in eliquid gets better each day as the flavors marry together at a molecular level. Steeping essentially allows for the best possible flavor of the eliquid. Not all eliquids are created equal, and the time that it takes to steep them the natural way will vary. It is ultimately up to you to decide what tastes best. The tips that we put together below are meant to be a guideline, and have given us the best results. Keep reading to learn how to steep eliquid.
How to Steep eLiquid
- Let your bottle sit in a cool, dark, and dry place for 4-7 days.
- Shake your bottle of eliquid vigorously for 1 minute each day.
- Remove the cap and squeeze the air out and introduce new oxygen into the bottle each day.
- Keep your bottle out of direct sunlight
- Test your eliquid on day 4, 5, 6, and 7 to see if it has the highest flavor profile.
We do have an alternative method for the less impatient vaper, we lovingly call the hot bath method. Find a dish or jar that is just short of the neck of the bottle of eliquid, and fill the jar up with hot water from 175-195 degrees fahrenheit. Remove the cap of your bottle of eliquid, and place it upright in the bath. Let it sit in the bath until the water drops to room temperature. Once the water has dropped to room temperature, place the cap back on the bottle and shake vigorously for 1 minute. The hot water thins the juice so when you shake the bottle it also the flavors to join together at a molecular level, thus shortening the steeping time of eliquid.
