Steeping Recommendations for Nicoticket eLiquid
EXPOSURE TO AIR WILL BEGIN THE STEEPING PROCESS!! CAP, SHAKE, EXPOSE TO AIR FOR 5-15 MINUTES. Rinse and repeat as many times as you are willing or able.
***WE DO NOT RECCOMEND SPEED STEEPING OR USING HEAT ON OUR LIQUID***
***ALWAYS KEEP LIQUID AWAY FROM EXPOSURE TO HEAT, LIGHT, or AIR FOR PURPOSES OF LONG TERM STORAGE***
What is "steeping" anyway?
Steeping is a process originally designed and implemented in the tea industry. The intent is to release flavor and allow the ingredients to meld together.
We have strategically chosen our liquids because they are "shake and vape." By shake and vape, we mean they are suitable for vaping immediately after mixing. Unlike some other liquids, the "chemically smell" is generally not present (or very faint) by the time it arrives at your doorstep. That aside, we encourage you to take the road less traveled. ALL of our eLiquids, without exception, benefit from the steeping process. THE SWEET SPOT FOR ALL NICOTICKET LIQUIDS SEEMS TO BE 10-14 DAYS OF STEEPING TIME. Flavors you would not have otherwise tasted will emerge. The eLiquid will balance itself and achieve the flavor it was intended to take on when it was mixed. The flavors will meld together producing a more complex and enjoyable experience.
Step 1) Shake the liquid vigorously when you receive it. Uncap the bottle of eLiquid and allow it to breathe with the cap off for 12-24 hours.
Step 2) After initial breathing time, recap your eLiquid and allow it to rest. During the remainder of the steeping period (10-14 days), shake your liquid vigorously once per day and allow to breathe for 5-15 minutes. Recap and store in a cool, dark, dry location away from children and pets.
Best practice: Most customers find Nicoticket eLiquid to be good right out of the mailbox, however, the “steeping sweet spot” (in terms of length) is a very subjective and individualized matter. If you have the time and the patience, embrace your inner eLiquid connoisseur and try this...
Drip your Nicoticket eliquid as soon as you are able. Note the flavor, color, and consistency of the liquid. (We always take notes)
Periodically, throughout the steeping period, bust out your RDA or dripping device and take the eLiquid for a test spin. Note changes in flavor, color, and consistency of the liquid.
Most experienced vapers can tell "when it's done." If there is any question, wait a week until you fill a tank. Continue to take flavor notes as the liquid progresses through its life cycle. Refer back to your notes when you reorder your liquid so you can recapture your own personal "sweet spot" when it comes to steeping!
We hope this clarifies some questions and enhances your vape experience!
Did you know the eLiquid gets darker as it ages? (If it contains nicotine)
Did you know: Comparing identical liquids - 18mg is generally darker than 12mg - 12mg is generally darker than 6mg - 6mg is generally darker than 0mg. eLiquid without nicotine changes very little over the course of time!
